Wärtsilä Hamworthy Flare Gas Ignition
Our Flare Gas Ignition System ensures the safe and reliable ignition of the flare whenever required.
The Wärtsilä Hamworthy system is suitable for all flare tips and may ignite several flares on a single flare deck. It is installed at a safe distance from the flare stack, with a guide pipe leading to the flare tip.
The system combines high reliability and availability over the lifetime of the facility with low maintenance requirements, and is easily retrofitted into existing installations.
The ignition system will deliver a cascade of sparks over the flare tip to ignite the flare gas and can be used under any weather or operating conditions. With no electronic equipment or movable parts located in the high heat radiation areas, the system is reliable and easy to maintain. Pilot burners are not necessary, and there is no heat sensitive equipment, such as cables, instrumentation and electrodes, on the flare deck.
