Mountain Equipment Firefly Flares Mountain Equipment manufactures portable 'zero ground disturbance' natural gas flare stacks, which are ideal for remote sites where manpower is limited. Our flares are highly mobile, easy to raise or lower, and simple to operate. With natural gas flaring becoming more and more necessary at well sites and pipelines, our flare stacks help meet State and EPA standards.

Technical Specs

Our Firefly portable flares were designed so a single person can easily deploy and operate the unit. The boom is raised or lowered by an electric hydraulic system that is powered by an onboard heavy duty 12v battery. Our flares also boast a fully piped pilot light system that is ignited electrically and can be run in either 'spot' or 'continuous' modes (for windy conditions). This pilot system can use either field gas or LPG (propane). The flare stack itself is mounted on a heavy-duty dual axle trailer and comes with electric brakes/lights, a 2 & 5/16" ball hitch, and racks capable of carrying 4,500 lbs. We currently manufacture these portable flare stacks in 30', 40' and 50' heights.
