About Our Air Assist Flares

Custom Flaring Options are Available: Air Assist Gas Assist Steam Assist Sonic Utility

Mission Flares and Combustion is a leading supplier of flare equipment. Air Assist technology is a proven method to achieve smokeless combustion of gas steams. The flare gas and air flow to the flare tip where they mix. The air assist blower provides a portion of the stoichiometric air required for combustion at high velocity which generates sufficient turbulence for mixing thus eliminating smoke formation.

The combustion air comes from a centrifugal or axial blower mounted near the bottom of the flare. Small production flares can use a 3-5 HP blower, while large custom air flares may require multiple blowers up to 150 HP each.

A properly operated air flare will achieve a destruction efficiency of greater than 98% and will meet the design requirements of 40 CRF 60.18.
