The Model 245 Fuel Efficient Flare Pilot is a high alloy, stainless steel pilot composed of fuel gas line, ignition line, inspirator, and optional thermocouple. The pilot head assembly includes a 310 stainless steel flame retention nozzle and wind shroud for extended service life while maintaining a capable of sustaining a stable flame in winds of up to 150 mph. Fuel gas passes through an inspirator at the base of the pilot, inducing air into the line and providing a combustible air/gas mixture. This gas exits the pilot head and is ignited by a fireball that travels up an ignition line.
The ESI ignition system provides rapid, reliable ignition and more importantly, instantaneous re-ignition if the pilot should ever lose its flame. This ignition system uses a fuel gas line much like other ignition systems, however, instead of a flame front generator it utilizes the “Excitor” which produces a high voltage spark directly in the pilot nozzle. This cutting edge innovation originated in the aerospace industry.
