Without use of fuel normally required by traditional pilots - DSI-100 Direct Spark Igniters operate 24/7 to deliver continuous flare stack ignition. Models direct a small stream of flare gas to the igniter shield/spark nozzle. This results in ignition of the igniter as well as the flare.
The spark nozzle houses the spark plug that sparks ever 2 sec - regardless of igniter flame temperature.
With DSI-100, flare gas is directed to the same ignition zone. This ensures ignition all the time regardless of wind speed, wind direction, or other environmental factors. Igniter flame is monitored and proven by a data logger or temperature switch. This feature is said to make DSI the only system compliant with latest Federal regulations.
The equipment provides flare stack ignition from small to medium 25 to 100 ft range located in remote areas or where power and fuel gas are not available. It operates on standard SP8 control systems to make for easy conversion from SP8-PTC to DSI-100.
