Cost-effective, smokeless flaring. Plants that require smokeless flares where steam is not preferred use John Zink's state-of-the-art, air-assisted flare systems for cost-effective, smokeless flaring.

Their long-lasting flares use a range of innovative techniques to optimize air-to-gas mixing and eliminate steam-energy costs. These innovative designs are used to optimize flaring performance from small, simple applications to large, complex designs and everything in between. Air-assisted flares can be used as a first-stage flare in multi-flare arrays designed to meet high capacity needs.

Their air-assisted flare solutions include: JZ LHLB™, AZDAIR™, SMART™ (refining and petrochemical only), JZ LH™, LHTS™, and LS™ (production only).

John Zink liquid flaresLiquid Flares
portable design, flexible operation, easy to deploy. John Zink pioneered the logical alternative to remote oil disposal with the Kaldair Condair™ liquid flare systems. Liquid flares eliminate the logistical headaches of shipping, trucking and storage, especially in hard-to-access locations on land, water and in arctic environments. We also developed our liquid flares with the clean-flaring advantages our customers expect, including minimum smoke, low radiation and low noise, and unique features for handling a wide variety of viscous fluids at high rates. Designs frequently include multiple flares on booms and use a water screen to minimize radiation during high flare rates.

Thermal Oxidizers
