Low Flow Flares

Many wellhead and tank battery sites have low gas emission rates, but are sufficiently large to require hydrocarbon emission control. The Hero Low Flow Flare (LFF) is designed for these small flare applications.

The Low Flow Flare is perfect for remote wellhead vents where there is no power, pilot fuel gas or compressed air. The entire assembly bolts onto a vertically facing 4” flange located 2-6ft off grade. Everything is included except the supporting pipe base.

The Low Flow Flare is our lowest cost flare system. The entire flare system costs under $5000 including shipping within the continental USA. We try to keep a number of units in stock, but delivery can vary from 0-4 weeks.

Pilot Gas: None required. Direct spark ignition.

Ignition Gas: None required.

Plant Air: None required.

Electricity: None required. Solar powered 12VDC ignition system.

Destruction Efficiency: 98% DRE and higher.
