                        Safe Ignition Pellet          


Demand by the oil industry for safe and reliable flare ignition has led to the development of this innovation ignition system. An ignition pellet is fired along a pipe to the flare tip. The pellet bursts producing a shower of sparks to ignite the gas. The system will eliminate the need for pilot flares and thus saving a lot of gas.


A key advantage of this system over traditional pilot burners and electronic ignition systems is its resistance to heat, wind, salt and humidity. Several systems have been installed on offshore installations in the North Sea and they have been operating successfully in all weather conditions for many years.


The ignition pellet is designed to discharge sparks when hitting the special surface of the striker plate at high velocity. The pellet is safe for normal handling and transportation.
