Fuel-free ignition system with plasma beam (ionized gas volume) and high ignition potential.  


  • Carbon-fuel-free ignition system: No fuel and no combustion air required
  • Compact design
  • Quickly-available ignition system to support the flexible operation of fossil-fired combustion systems
    • Direct ignition of different solid fuels such as dry lignite, highly-volatile hard coal, coal dust or biomass
    • Safe ignition of various gas, liquid and solid fuels
  • Microwave plasma output: 1 / 3 kW
  • High ignition potential: High temperature with high energy density in the ignition volume
  • Any carrier medium for provision of the plasma possible (e.g. air)
  • Few connections and interfaces required
  • Rapid return on investment
    Complete saving on ignition fuels and the necessary infrastructure. Fuel conditioning is not required, regular safety audits are not necessary.
  • Simple integration for incorporation into higher-level control systems and controllers
  • High availability
  • Low maintenance
  • Wide range of applications
    Can be used for other applications in the chemical industry and in thermal process plants (e.g. oxyfuel systems (carrier medium: CO₂) or oxygen-free thermal reactions)
