NAO has made special lightweight tripods & burners for transport in a single engine
airplane (such as Cessna or Piper with floats or skis)  for duty in remote areas of Alaska.

Tripod flares are available from diameters of 1/4" to 4" and heights from 10' to 25' typically.
A wide range of specials can also be designed and built.

NAO offers leases, rental and sales.  NAO also offers engineering/key component packages
for local manufacturer in foreign or overseas jobs, thus saving transport and duty.

15' Special Tripod -- dual stage for pipeline blowdown station in Texas -- blowdown gas used for both flare and pilot -- electronic spark ignition by solar power -- monitored by radio link


EXAMPLE of Special Tripod Flare

A dual stage tripod flare being test fired at
NAO Philadelphia lab before shipment.

Checking the pilot, ignitor, flare burner and solar cells.

This tripod flare was used on a remote blowdown station in Texas.

The blowdown gas was used for both the pilot (which was ignited
and controlled by solar power) and the main flare since not fuel
gas for the pilot or ignitor was available. 

The ignition used NAO's high energy spark ignitor
    (excitor from jet engine).

The blowdown station and the flare were controlled
and monitored by cellphone "radio" link.

EXAMPLE of 25' Tripod Flare in Petrochem Plant

The tripod flare has a disentrainment drum at its
base for condensate, liquid & water removal.

The main flare also has a side mounted assist gas
burner to insure complete combustion for flaring cases
when there are high percentage of inerts, such as
CO2, N2 or H2O.
