Product Selection Guide




Utility Flares

Utility Flares
Utility flares are widely used in  natural gas service and  emergency release applications when smoke-free is not required. Typical flow rates range from 1 to 60 MMSCFD. Our design utilizes  stabilizers to improve the combustion efficiency and prevent flame liftoff.

Tank Battery Flares  

Tank Battery Flares
Tank Battery Flares (TBF)  are designed to destruct tank vapors and waste gas streams coming off the high pressure seperature. These flares are economical and reliable.  HERO stocks TBF designed to flow up to 3 MMSCFD.  Larger flow rates are available and typically ships within 4 weeks.  

Loe Flow Flares

Low Flow  / Tank Vapor Flares
Ideal for applications (i.e. tank battery sites, small wellheads) were electric and pilot gas are not available.   The Low Flow Flare requires no electricity and no pilot fuel gas. The ignition system is battery / solar powered and uses a direct spark ignition probe to ignite the flare.  This system is the most economical flare on the market and are in stock.




Trailer Flares


Trailer Flares / Skid Mounted Flares
Trailer flares for well flowback operate up to 7 MMSCFD with stack heights of 30-60ft. Trailer flares for pipeline blowdown and maintenance operations use special flare tips for smoke free combustion of LPG or propylene. Smaller portable skid mounted units are available to flow up to 250,000 SCFD.  These systems are typically in stock.



 Smokeless Flare

Assist Flare - Blower

Air Assist Flare - Blower
Smoke free flaring with a low pressure blower. Air assisted flares mix blower air and flare gas at the flare tip. The low pressure air swirls the flare gas and prevents smoke formation. Hero air assist flare tips prevent flame liftoff and poor destruction efficiency. Air assist flares for the production field are 3-5 week delivery. Larger air assist flares for the plant facilities run 8-12 weeks delivery.

Loading Terminal Flares  

Loading Terminal Flares
Truck and rail loading terminal use a special type of air assist flare. Air in the truck vapor creates the potential for flashback. Additional safety precautions are mandatory for safe operation.

Air Assist Flare - Compressor  

High Pressure Air or Gas Assist Flare
Smoke free flaring using a high pressure air from a local air compressor. Compressed air is a slick solution to existing flares that smoke. 5-50 Hp screw compressors provide pressurized air to prevent smoke at normal operating conditions. High pressure fuel gas or nitrogen also works. Typical deliveries are 4-6 weeks plus 2 day onsite installation.

Sonic Flare  

Sonic Flares/High Pressure Flares
Flare gas pressure can prevent smoke formation without the use of blower air or fuel gas. Sonic flares are used when flare gas pressures in excesss of 20 to 30 psig are available.  Both elevated and ground flares utilize this technology.



Scrubbers /   KO Drum

 Flare Gas Scrubber
  Flare Knockout Drums / Scrubbers
Protect your flare gas system from liquid droplets in the waste gas stream that can destroy your flare as well as produce a hazardous situation by having burning droplets rain from the flare if the liquid is not properly removed.





Pilot Ignition Systems

HFF FuelFree Pilot

Flare Pilot Ignition Systems

Hero offers a variety of pilot ignition systems.  Our standard systems are designed to operate on propane, natural gas or wellhead gas. The ignition panel can be supplied to operate on 110VAC or battery / solar powered. We offer pilot systems that meet all EPA regulations for pilot monitoring.

Pilot Retraction Systems  

Pilot Retraction Systems
The best retractable system on the market. Tired of stuck pilots in corroded Unistrut channel? The Hero retraction system will smoothly raise and lower the pilots even after years of corrosive service. The robust sled is stable in high winds. Pilot retraction systems eliminate the need for flare ladders and platforms, a considerable cost savings.
