Direct Ignited Pilots


The Direct Ignited pilot burners are a recommended alternative for a Flame Front Generator Type pilot burner when:

  1. No Compressed Air is available
  2. Cold Climates (Freezing of Ignition lines – Condensate/Ice)

NAO was the first to introduce the Direct Pilot Ignition (HEI). These Pilot Burners are as reliable as the Flame Front Type Pilot Burners and have been utilized in extreme climates such as Alaska, Canada, Siberia, and several other locations.
