Regarding combustion research, The pioneering experiments in combustion research, some 600,000 years ago, were concerned with flame propagation rather than ignition. The initial ignition source was provided by Mother Nature in the form of the electrical discharge plasma of a thunderstorm or as volcanic lava, depending on location. 6 phenomena. However, this process of consolidation of the scientific approach to the subject is not yet complete. 7 Despite the length of time it has been around, despite its importance to man, and despite vast amounts of research, combustion is still far from being completely understood.

For example, customers began asking for reliable pilots and pilot igniters, when atmospheric venting of waste gases and emergency discharges was replaced by combustion in flares in the late 1940s. This in turn was followed by requests for flare burners and finally complete flare systems, marking the start of the flare equipment industry. Similar customer requests for help in dealing with gas and liquid waste streams and hydrocarbon vapor led the Zink Company to become a leading supplier of gas and liquid waste incinerators and also of hydrocarbon vapor recovery and other vapor control products.
