Gas Engine Ignition Systems
Woodward’s ignition systems offer a solution for all types of modern gas engines. Our ignition systems range from smart inductive coil to high energy AC ignition systems and include the Fast Turbulent Igniter—our new pre-chamber spark plug.
The FTI's patented pre-chamber combustion technology improves combustion initiation beyond J-gap and conventional pre-chamber spark plugs for fast, consistent ignition of lean-burn natural gas engines.
The FTI's unique and patented design enables consistent ignition without the need for a high-energy ignition system, reducing the need for precious metal electrodes to achieve long life. It is also customizable to meet specific engine combustion requirements.Fast Turbulent Igniter (FTI)
CD Ignition System
Woodward's IC-920 and IC-922 ignition systems provide the essential high-energy spark needed for lean-burn engines that operate at higher mean effective pressures and with larger cylinder bore sizes.
PG/E3 Ignition Systems
For smaller-sized gas engines with a relatively low mean effective pressure, the onboard ignition systems of the PG and some E3 engine control systems, in combination with Woodward Smart Coils, is a cost-effective solution. Smart Coil-based inductive ignition systems are available for both rich- and lean-burn engine control systems.
AC Ignition System
For OEMs developing next-generation gas engines, Woodward's new IC-1100 AC ignition systems offer the full flexibility for delivered spark energy and duration to match the ignitability characteristics of the gaseous fuel. OEMs should consult with their Woodward account manager on to incorporate this revolutionary technology into their next engine designs.
