Ignition elements

Capable to withstand the very high temperatures


Elektrotermija produces a line of heating elements for the efficient ignition of pellets and woodchips for stoves, burners and boilers. They are designed to heat air for indirect ignition of solid fuel such as pellet. These elements can be supplied as a complete assembly with an air inlet manifold tube.
Alumina ceramic heaters are suitable for very rapid ignitions or when it is necessary to achieve higher temperature. When the hole is open, the air goes both externally and within the ceramic heater. This is more effective solution and allows to reduce the incandescent time. Wood pellets and other solid fuels will be ignited quickly limiting the exhaust gases and reducing smoke to a minimum.
Our standard products are always available on stock. Special designs and tailor-made executions of heaters can be developed as per customer's request.
