For more than half a century Smitsvonk has been making low-tension high-energy ignition and control systems for industrial combustion processes. These electrical and electronic ignition systems are applied world-wide. They are characterized by a high degree of reliability under demanding conditions. Ignition is not effected by dirt, humidity, extreme temperatures or aggressive gases.
Smitsvonk’s low tension high energy ignition
system is designed to meet the requirements of
reliable ignition for many industrial applications.
The system is based upon the principle of a capacitor
discharge over a special discharge surface.
This surface consists of an isolator with
semiconductor properties. The isolator and positive
and negative electrodes are integrated into
a high temperature resistant spark plug. When a
charged capacitor is connected, it will be discharged
via the spark plug producing sparks,
even under wet or soiled conditions.
