NAO has used our expertise with flare pilots and flaring (safety & thermal radiation) to
supply "pilots to go".  The ability to install pilots on an operating flare stack in the event
of a failure of the original flare pilots due to fowling/plugging or mechanical damage.

NAO also has trailer and temporary flares (up to 300' tall and 48" diameter) for more severe
flare repair.  The temporary or trailer flares can divert the plant relief gases while the plant
flare is repaired or replaced without a costly shutdown.  For more information, see plant services.

Each pilot has its own gas supply (stainless steel 1/2" diameter flexible hose), spark ignition
(24VDC stainless steel armor braided Teflon insulated wire) and thermocouple (chromel-alumel
stainless steel armor braided Teflon insulated wire).  NAO can supply manual and automatic
ignition systems -- even solar powered when no electric power is available.
