Flargent started off manufacturing flares, and today has become a leader in the Latin American market of flare and vent stacks, covering all the steps from conceptual design and development to critical variables definition, and final product realization.


To mitigate the effects of radiation on the environment and nearby equipment, Flargent pays special attention to the height of vertical flares, manufacturing their equipment in accordance with API 521 and API 537 standards, customer specifications, as well as other international standards, where applicable.

Flargent supplies two basic types of support designs, depending on the height of the flare and the space available: guyed supported flares, which are held in place by a structure of guy wires and anchors, and self-supporting, which are held in place by a built-in structure of the flare.

Conventional non-assisted flares tend to generate smoke, depending to a great extent on the flue gas being burnt. Flue gases with a higher ratio of heavy hydrocarbons have a greater tendency to generate smoke. For this kind of service, air-assist or steam-assist systems can be provided to improve combustion, and there is also the option of using sonic tipped flares. Nonetheless, a conventional-design flare will always be the most cost-effective solution for the safe disposal of residual gases.


Enclosed-flame flares are habitually used in industrial areas to contain the flame and avoid the effects of radiation and noise on nearby personnel and equipment. They are also used near airports, or in production sites within nature-protection areas.

Flargent offers a selection of multi-burner staged flares that guarantee a smokeless combustion without the need of costly air-assist or steam-assist systems, thus lowering the overall operational cost.

Enclosed-flame or open-flame ground flares may be used, depending on residual gas flowrates.


To meet the need for reliable mobile pressure-relieving systems for temporary installations, programmed plant shut-downs, pipeline maintenance and the like, Flargent has developed and supplies a wide variety of mobile flare systems, customized to meet each client’s particular requirements.

Mobile flare systems may have open- or enclosed-flame designs, variable processing capacity, knock-out systems to remove the bulk of liquid carryover, and noise and smoke reduction capabilities, among other characteristics.

All mobile flare systems manufactured by Flargent have remote ignition and a control panel for safe and reliable operation and are designed to minimize rig-up time.


If smoke is a problem when burning residual gases, Flargent supplies smokeless flares and the technical know-how to assist the client regarding equipment selection and design issues involved in the smoke-suppression system to be used on the flaring device, such as the required air and steam flowrates.

Flargent uses smoke-suppression technologies that also help reduce visual pollution and particulate matter emissions to the environment. These technologies include sonic tips and air-assist or steam-assist systems.
