Flare and Flare Systems

Having manufactured and installed many of the world’s largest and most complex flare systems, Howe-Baker has consistently shown the ability to satisfy any customer requirement.  In addition to standard utility flares, Howe-Baker offers a comprehensive selection of smokeless flares for new installations and retrofits including steam-assisted, gas-assisted, high-pressure/low-pressure, stage, sonic ground and enclosed models.

Howe-Baker manufactures flares for numerous applications including refineries, petrochemical and gas plants, offshore platforms, pulp and paper mills, landfills and food processing plants.

Howe-Baker also offers comprehensive engineering services to design, build and erect multi-million dollar flare projects.  Howe-Baker systems include self-supported, guy-supported and derrick-supported flare stacks as well as offshore boom-mounted flares, portable flares and demountable flares.

Howe-Baker also has the ability to develop specialty flares for custom applications.  For example, Howe-Baker accepted an industry challenge to develop a crude oil flare which could substantially reduce pollution by decreasing the level of smoke and hydrocarbon fallout produced during offshore well testing.  The result was the introduction of the Howe-Baker Flare, rated  more than 99.99% efficient by independent industry testing firms.

Auxiliary flare system equipment available from Howe-Baker includes purge reduction devices, liquid seals, knockout drums and the most reliable pilot ignition systems.  Howe-Baker also refurbishes existing flares and provides spare parts for their flare equipment and that of other flare manufacturers.
