Large-bore engines running on lean gaseous fuel mixtures often experience a slower burn rate of the fuel and incomplete combustion. These conditions reduce combustion efficiency and contribute to problematic exhaust emissions. Typical J-gap spark plugs try to address these performance issues by increasing the spark energy, which shortens plug life. To counter decreasing spark plug life, J-gap manufacturers often increase electrode area, which has a "quenching" effect on the ignition spark, increasing combustion variability; or they use precious metals, which increase manufacturing complexity and reduce plug durability.
The FTI's unique and patented design enables consistent ignition without the need for a high-energy ignition system, reducing the need for precious metal electrodes to achieve long life. It is also customizable to meet specific engine combustion requirements.
What is delivers: Improved Engine Efficiency Consistent ignition of fuel charge - more complete fuel burning Faster combustion - occurs just at Top Dead Center (ATDC) for better combustion efficiency Improved Combustion Stability
J-Gap vs FIT:
Reliable and robust - designed for high cylinder pressure
