The Model 100 Continuum Ignitor utilizes a high-voltage electric arc to ignite a combustible air/gas mixture. This arc occurs every 20 seconds for a two-second duration (timing is adjustable). The Continuum provides a spark inside a “slipstream” chamber that diverts a portion of the waste gas to create a combustible air/gas mixture. This allows the Continuum ignitor to function without pilot gas. The ignitor can be mounted on vertical and horizontal flares and is used in both onshore and offshore applications.
The Model 275 pilot is a high-tech, retractable pilot that has been adapted to operate on both high-energy electronic ignition and flame front ignition. Technically, the Model 275 pilot is a combination of the Model 270 Retrax Pilot and the Model 255 FFG Pilot, allowing for redundant ignition technology and retractability. This design allows the operator to retract pilots individually or all at once for ease of maintenance. Since the Model 275 Pilot can be lowered from grade, operators need not wait for a plant shut down to service the pilots, while allowing the client to forego ladders and platforms.
