Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9845649A1] Flame igniter with sliding spark discharge for igniting a combustion air - combustion gas mixture passing along an external surface of the flame igniter via an external sliding spark. The flame igniter comprises a first central electrode, and an insulator coaxially surrounding the central electrode. A metal housing coaxially surrounds the insulator, in which a forward end of the housing forms a second electrode. The second electrode is spaced from the forward end of the first electrode for defining a spark-gap situated on the outer surface of the flame igniter, where a part of the insulator is exposed. The flame igniter has an integrated flame gas supply, for instance a passage arranged in the metal housing or the first electrode which passage is connectable to a flame gas source.
