Smoker baking igniter tips introduction

Release time:


Smoke machine baking igniters are things that can be seen everywhere in our daily life, so don’t you know the function of the igniter? Today I collected information about the function of the smoke machine baking igniter on the Internet, so let’s learn about the smoke machine baking igniter together. Let's introduce the little knowledge of machine baking igniter!

Smoke machine baking igniter refers to a device that instantly provides enough energy to ignite coal powder and oil (gas) fuel to stabilize the flame. There are commercial stoves and civilian stoves for hood baking igniters. Commercial use is mainly used in the ignition device system of catering kitchen stoves. Due to the complex use environment of catering kitchens, the requirements for choosing hood baking igniters are stricter than those for civilian use. Civilian use is mainly used in the production of ignition devices for household stoves. The use environment is simpler than that of catering stoves, and pulse ignition is often used.

The types are roughly divided into the following three types.

Electronic pulse igniter: pulse type has low output power, low ignition energy, and low spark temperature. For the mixed gas with high partial ignition, optional gas and low concentration, the ignition rate of the burner with air supply is low when ignited. Safety accidents such as non-ignition and deflagration often occur, and it takes a long time.

Electronic high-voltage igniter: high power, high ignition energy, and high spark temperature, but the ignition time generally does not exceed 5 minutes. Otherwise, it is easy to generate heat, burn out, bulky and heavy, and difficult to install and transport.

Silicon steel sheet igniter: high power, high energy, high spark temperature, ignition time is about 10 minutes. Otherwise, it generates heat, is small in size and light in weight, but domestic products are generally of poor quality, and 90% of the market is occupied by imports.

The role of the smoke machine baking igniter is to cooperate with the sensor to determine the flashover timing of the spark plug, that is, the ignition timing. A damaged igniter is basically useless, but it's actually quite simple inside, just a few diodes, resistors, and thyristors. An igniter is not a transformer. High voltage electricity is generated by the ignition coil. The ignition coil is a transformer. The igniter just controls the timing of high voltage generation.

The working principle of the smoke machine baking igniter is that the AC power frequency 220v is converted into a DC pulsating current by step-up rectification to charge the energy storage capacitor. After the capacitor is fully charged, the discharge current is transmitted to the semiconductor chip of the ignition rod through the discharge tube, choke coil, shielded cable, etc., forming a high-energy arc spark. After the ignition device stops, the residual charge in the capacitor is discharged through the bleeder resistor

The above is the introduction of the small knowledge of the hood baking igniter. Regarding the hood baking igniter, I suggest that you first understand the defects of the igniter. The carbon accumulated on the spark plug always ignites, so it is difficult to clean, and the electrostatic capacity of the system is not easy to choose. Well, with all the information on what this igniter does, I hope to have more options when choosing an igniter in the future.
