Air Assisted Flares

No Steam, Smokeless Combustion

An effective alternative to steam-assisted smokeless flares, Honeywell UOP Callidus® Air Assisted Flares can help dramatically to reduce flare tip maintenance and lower operating costs.

Available in a variety of sizes and mixing geometries, air assisted flare systems use blowers and a sophisticated flare tip mixing section to thoroughly mix air and waste gas within the combustion zone, resulting in smokeless combustion. The continual flow of forced draft air cools the tip and prevents flame pull down in high wind conditions.
