High energy ignition device

The E-SPARK ignition device offers reliable ignition of gaseous fuels and light fuel oil.

Available models are compatible with SMITSVONK pilot burners and are integrated in robust industrial made housings which allow an easy and durable installation.


  • Ignition of gaseous fuels and light liquid fuels (e.g. diesel oil)
  • Spark energy up to 12 Joule/spark
  • Delivery in industrial housing or explosion proofed housing - up to 6 modules in one housing
  • Perfect for flare ignition
  • Can be combined with PLC for
    • flame motoring over thermocouple (e.g. Type K)
    • interface to the DCS 



Your Benefit

  • Reliable Ignition
    High energy ignition is unaffected by moisture and dirt in comparison to high voltage ignition.
    Used for ignition of gaseous fuels and light liquid fuels (e.g. diesel oil)
  • Flexible ignition frequencies
    various ignition frequencies and different energy/spark programable
  • Distances till 300m
    Perfect for flare ignition together with Smitsvonk pilot burners
  • Low maintenance
    Thyristor controlled and therefore non-wearing electronic


  • Chemical industry
  • Refineries
  • Waste water treatment
  • Land fill
