Profire Energy Creates Flare Stack Igniter

Press Release

August 13, 2014

Lindon – Profire Energy, Inc., a technology company that manufactures, installs and services burner management systems and other combustion technologies for the oil and gas industry, has unveiled a new product for use in oilfield flare stack environments, the Flare Stack Igniter (FSI). Flare stacks are used throughout the industry to burn off unwanted natural gas.

Profire currently resells various burners and pilots that are often used with its burner management system; however, Profire has not historically offered a pilot specifically for flare-stack environments.

“Flare stacks are historically very challenging for producers to manage,” said Stephen Pitcher, lead engineer on the project. “Although the flare stacks are often installed in extremely harsh environments, they are also a subject of regulatory scrutiny, as their pilots are often expected to maintain constant flame—a significant challenge for much of the industry. Our FSI offers a reliable, powerful solution to help finally solve this industry problem.”

By extending Profire’s product-line with the FSI, the company can now offer a proprietary pilot for flare stack environments.

“Much of the industry is using flare-stack igniters that struggle to stay operational in intense flare environments," said Harold Albert, chief operating officer of Profire. "Our FSI has been designed to perform exceptionally in these environments. Its orifice size, core assembly, composition, reliable flame-sensing and ease-of-installation all combine to make it a robust, powerful igniter for the industry.”

Profire has installed dozens of systems for testing throughout North America, in various environments, with no incidents of product-failure. Real-world and simulated tests of harsh weather environments—including torrential rain tests, and wind tests of nearly 200 MPH—were also performed, with the FSI maintaining a constant flame throughout testing.
