Fireye Surefire II High Energy Igniters

Fireye Surefire II
The Fireye Surefire II High-Energy Ignition System is used for direct spark ignition of most gas or liquid fuels used in oil or gas igniters or main burners. The High-Energy Ignition System is available in various versions. To ensure optimal operation, the first part of the ignition tip should always be in an ignitable fuel-air mixture, during all modes of operation.

After successful ignition, the ignition tip should be disconnected from the power supply and taken
out of the flame. Optionally, when an automated process is required, a pneumatic retraction unit and
systems for hazardous areas are available.

The Surefire II range includes:
  • Integrated power pack with spark rod.
  • Split Power pack and separate spark rod.
  • Portable battery powered Integrated power pack and spark rod.
  • ATEX, Power pack, and spark rods.
  • Co-axial Retractors, with / without integrated solenoid valve.
  • ATEX Solenoid. 

  • Selectable voltage ( 115/230 vac ).
  • Visual indication of spark operation
  • Proof of spark relay
  • Choice of system, Integrated or Kit or Kit with Quick Disconnect
  • Thermal cutout protection integrated in transformer
  • ATEX options
  • Compact "co-axial" retractors
  • Safety bleed resistor discharges capacitors in 120 seconds.

White Paper: Efficiency Improvement Opportunities for Fuel-Based Process Heating Systems

Fuel-Based Process Heating SystemsFuel-Based Process Heating System Optimization

This white paper gives an overview of the most common performance improvement opportunities for fuel-based process heating systems. The main goals of the performance optimization are reduction of energy losses and increase of energy transferred to the load.

Performance and efficiency improvement opportunities can be grouped into five categories:
  • Heat generation: discusses the equipment and the fuels used to heat a product.
  • Heat containment: describes methods and materials that can reduce energy loss to the surroundings.
  • Heat transfer: discusses methods of improving heat transferred to the load or charge to reduce energy consumption, increase productivity, and improve quality.
  • Waste heat recovery: identifies sources of energy loss that can be recovered for more useful purposes, and addresses ways to capture additional energy.
  • Enabling technologies: addresses common opportunities to reduce energy losses by improving material handling practices, effectively sequencing and scheduling heating tasks, seeking more efficient process control, and improving the performance of auxiliary systems. Enabling technologies include:
    • Advanced sensors and controls
    • Advanced materials—identifying performance and efficiency benefits available from using advanced materials
    • Auxiliary systems—addressing opportunities in process heating support systems.
