Explosion proof ignition systems

The wheeled ignition units are designed and individually customized on request for ignition applications in which no pilot burner or ignition burner can be installed or if simple spark ignition is insufficient.

The ignition unit is based on an integrated, reliably working SMITSVONK high energy igniter which starts a self-aspirating SMITSVONK ignition burner.

The wheeled models come as easy-to-handle trolleys with two or four wheels and allow the storage of up to four standard gas bottles.


  • Flexible and mobile use at furnaces, boilers or ground flares
  • Hard-wearing design for industrial environments and hazardous areas
  • Non-sensitive against moisture and dirt
  • Integrated non-wearing high energy ignition unit
  • Independent from additional air supply due to self aspirating ignition
  • Available for different gases and pressures


  • Furnaces
  • Boilers
  • Ground flares
