As an entrepreneur, John F. Straitz, Sr. started our company in 1912 and we have been family owned and operated ever since. NAO started out under the name National AirOil Burner Company, and originally produced gas/oil burners for refineries and other industrial, commercial and residential installations. Today our business centers only on fully engineered solutions for combustion, pollution, safety and energy control.
We design and manufacture flares, burners, fabricated vessels, clean-air combustion systems, pollution control solutions, safety equipment, and other environmental components to the highest possible quality level that is consistent with the requirements of our client’s job specifications. Standard NAO burners are available for forced or natural draft firing in any position with oil, gas, combination fuels, and waste liquid/gas/vapors. NAO also manufacturers low noise, low NOx burners and high-intensity burners that can be fired with various fuels, including low-BTU waste gases. Still another accomplishment is the state-of-the art “self-diagnostic” fully automatic ignition and monitoring/control panels designed and manufactured for nuclear power plants and aerospace applications.
Our customers include all major energy corporation’s (oil, gas, LNG, LPG, petroleum refining), energy transportation, storage facilities (natural gas, hydrocarbon pipelines, gasoline loading terminals, crude-oil ships, and barges), and worldwide producers of chemical/petrochemical, pulp and paper, pharmaceuticals, basic metals, electrical power plants, government projects and many other process industries.
