Responder Training’s Full 1-inch Propane Flare

Aptly named, “The RESPONDER PROPANE FLARE”, our flare is the first 1 inch commercially available propane flare intended for first responders and service agencies. The Responder propane flare has been created to move large volumes of propane using industry standard 1 3/4” ACME connections, 1” full flow hose, pipe and fittings. Using  full 1” components throughout, “The RESPONDER PROPANE FLARE” can flow more that 4 times the capacity of 1/2″ flares. “The RESPONDER PROPANE FLARE” and the additional connection kits allows you to switch between an assortment of cylinders, tanks and piping systems with no tools required reducing time and the potential of leaks.

Our new “Water Injection” kit offers you an option that most have never even heard of. What if you could convert a liquid propane leak to water? Doing so reduces or eliminates the expanding vapor down to a safer level almost instantly allowing you to extricate trapped victims, find the leak or just manage it until the product can be burnt off. Propane weighs about half the weight of water, and like oil propane will float under the right circumstances. Click on SHOP and check out the “Emergency Water Injection” kit and give us a call if you have additional questions.
