Plasma Ignition System

  • Safe ignition of different gaseous, liquid and solid fuels
  • Familiar high reliability
  • High ignition potential: high temperature with high energy density in the ignition volume
  • No fuel and no combustion air required
  • Creation of plasma with variable carrier media possible (e.g. air)
  • Easy and simple integration in superordinate control Systems
  • Low requirement for maintenance
  • Few connections and interfaces required


The Plasma Ignition System is usable for ignition of difficult to be ignited fuels like pulverized solid fuels (pre-dried lignite (PDL), hard coal and biomass) as well as gases, oils and special fuels. Additionally the igntion in low-oxygen or oxygen-free atmospheres is possible.

The firing systems can be found in the following areas:

  • Fossil-fired power plants (lignite, hard coal, biomass, oil and gas)
  • Thermal process utilities (industrial ovens)
  • Chemical palnts
  • Timber industry
  • Waste incinerators
  • Petrochemical industry
  • Iron and steel industry
