D-VE 500

Pneumatic Retraction Unit

Pneumatic retraction units D-VE 500 allow the precise and repeatable positioning of the ignition tip at any time during the operating process of the burner.

Retracting the ignition lance after the successful ignition provides the ignition lance from damages due to high temperatures during burner operation.

Retraction units of the D-VE 500 series are compatible with

  • High energy ignition devices D-HG 500-50, -51, -52 with directly mounted lances D-ZL 500
  • Rigid ignition lances D-ZL 521 for safe areas
  • Rigid ignition lances for hazardous areas, as D-ZL 441Ex


  • Automatic insertion and retraction of ignition lances
  • Compressed air drive
  • Direction change and speed control by solenoid valve
  • Non-contact limit switches
  • Available stroke lengths: 300, 400, 500 and 600mm
  • Operational overpressure up to 10 bar
  • Pressure-tight and/or explosion protected models also available
