Electrode-spark Igniter

$50.50 $47.50


Electrode-Spark Igniter is an essential component in ignition systems, particularly in gas-fueled appliances such as furnaces, water heaters, boilers, and gas stoves. Here's a detailed description of this component:

Functionality: The electrode-spark igniter serves the primary function of generating a spark to ignite the gas-air mixture in combustion systems. When activated, it creates a high-voltage electrical discharge or spark that ignites the fuel, initiating the combustion process.

Design: The igniter typically consists of a metal electrode or two electrodes positioned close together. One electrode is typically connected to the ignition control module or circuit, while the other electrode is grounded to the appliance chassis or another suitable ground point. The gap between the electrodes is where the spark is generated.

Construction: Electrodes are often made of materials that can withstand high temperatures and resist corrosion, such as stainless steel or ceramic. The design may vary depending on the specific application and requirements of the appliance.

Power Source: The electrode-spark igniter is powered by an electrical circuit within the appliance. It typically receives a high-voltage pulse from the ignition control module or spark generator, which creates the spark across the electrode gap.

Ignition Process: When the appliance's control system calls for ignition, it sends a signal to the ignition module, which activates the electrode-spark igniter. The igniter generates a spark, which ignites the gas, initiating the combustion process.

Safety Features: Modern ignition systems often incorporate safety features to ensure reliable and safe operation. These may include flame sensors or thermocouples to detect the presence of a flame and shut off the gas supply if ignition fails.

Maintenance: While electrode-spark igniters are designed for durability and reliability, they may require periodic maintenance or replacement over time due to wear and tear or corrosion buildup. Regular inspection and cleaning can help ensure proper operation and extend the life of the igniter.
