This product features high reliability, low requirement for maintenance and simplicity of the few required connections and interfaces to ensure safe ignition of different gaseous, liquid and solid fuels. The Plasma Ignition System is usable for ignition of difficult to be ignited fuels like pulverized solid fuels (pre-dried lignite (PDL), hard coal and biomass) as well as gases, oils and special fuels. Additionally the ignition in low-oxygen or oxygen-free atmospheres is possible.
