CE Ignitor Upgrade Products
FPS provides several products for upgrading and
improving reliability of existing CE ignitors on corner fired
boilers. The FPS ignitor equipment is a careful integration of
electrical and mechanical components which are designed to optimize
performance in areas of fuel atomization, combustion, flame stability,
and flame monitoring.
FPS offers the following products for these upgrades:
FPS ignitor horns are fabricated to exacting standards utilizing
high quality cast stainless steel. Horn assemblies are available
for all mounting arrangements.
An ignitor booster package is available as a retrofit on both
FPS and CE oil horn ignitors. The booster provides an additional
14MBtu/hr of heat input. Adding the booster permits the ignitor
to be used for warm-up and load support, as well as main fuel
Installation of the ignitor booster requires minor
modifications to the ignitor horn and ignitor mounting plate.
The ignitor booster consists of an additional atomizer assembly
which is installed on top of the ignitor horn.
SunSpot Flame Detector
The SunSpot Retrofit Kit is available to replace P
(differential pressure) type flame detectors on CE gas or oil
ignitors in tangentially-fired boilers. The easily installed retrofit
kit requires no modification to existing CE ignitor hardware.
Plasma Arc Ignition (PAI)
System Oil only
FPS offers an efficient ignition system to overcome the common
problem of carbon build-up on the spark plug in oil ignitors.
Over time this carbon build-up reduces the reliability of the
ignitor spark, and consequently the ignitor. The PAI produces
a high energy spark which instantaneously lights the fuel oil.
Each powerful spark creates a shock at the spark plug tip, which
disperses any material collecting on the tip of the spark plug.
This continuous cleaning of the spark tip reduces the need for
manual cleaning characteristic of conventional ignition systems.
Flow Regulator Oil
FPSs flow regulator is designed to improve the operation
of oil horn ignitors. The ignitor oil supply is regulated to the
optimal level required to achieve efficient fuel atomization and
burning within the environment of the horn.
Ignitor Control Box
FPS's manufactures ignitor control box / valve assemblies specifically
designed to match the layout of tangentially-fired boilers.
