AEREON Launches Line of Environmentally Compliant Enclosed Combustors

June 3, 2014

AEREON, a single-source supplier of environmentally-compliant gas and vapor combustion, handling and recovery equipment, today announced a new product line of enclosed combustors that delivers regulatory compliant solutions for the upstream oil and gas industry. The Quad-O Design Enclosed Combustor (QDEC) is a completely smokeless system offering quiet operation with no visible flame, reducing emissions to comply with NSPS Subpart OOOO.

“As a result of extensive interviews with our major shale play clients, we developed QDEC as a solution to meet customer demands for an environmentally compliant line of combustors,” said Michael Hainsworth, president and chief executive officer of AEREON. “Through our Flare Industries and Jordan Technologies brands, AEREON has more than 30 years of experience, and the launch of QDEC represents another example of our commitment to offering clients a wide range of products and services that meet their specific needs.”

QDEC does not require electrical, steam or assist gas utilities to achieve smokeless performance, which reduces capital, operational and maintenance expenses. Also, with low power consumption and an optional solar powered ignition panel with nine-day battery backup support, QDEC offers reliability even in remote installations.

The QDEC line offers a suite of optional equipment enabling the product to meet varying company codes and standards. With a quick and easy installation, QDEC reduces the number of required onsite personnel for deployment, and AEREON offers delivery of systems within less than two weeks of order.

Headquartered in Austin, Texas, AEREON operates in 44 countries, with more than 300 employees worldwide and offices in the U.S., Canada, Italy, U.K., the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia and Australia.


AEREON, headquartered in Austin, TX, is a global leader in combustion, vapor recovery, and pollution-control technologies services and equipment.
