Company Description: John Zink traces its roots to 1929 when John Steele Zink resigned his position at a gas company and began designing and
selling a new burner that reduced fuel costs by burning natural gas more efficiently. The innovation and success of this product spread quickly
throughout the industry and led to the company selling burners to refineries around the world. As time passed, other combustion related equipment,
including flares and thermal oxidizers, was added to the product offering.
John Zink Hamworthy Combustion continues this legacy as a global leader in developing next-generation products, technologies and solutions to
increase efficiency and enhance air quality through the clean, efficient combustion of fossil fuels. John Zink branded products include flares, flare gas
recovery systems, burners, thermal oxidizers, and vapor control systems.
