Safe Start Igniter

The Elastec Safe Start Igniter is designed to provide a safe and easy way to start controlled insitu burns (ISB) for oil spill recovery operations. These igniters were used extensively in the Deepwater Horizon controlled burn operation in the Gulf of Mexico.

Each 1 gal. / 3.8 l container is preloaded with non-toxic Safe Start gelling agent to be mixed with diesel fuel. Common marine flares are used as the ignition source, melting the container and allowing the gelled burning fuel to spread.
