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.
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.
