Aviation spark plugs
Aviation spark plugs are needed to ignite the fuel in the internal combustion engine. Their design and principle of operation have not changed since the nineteenth century - it was then that the engine plugs firmly entered the world of vehicles.
The cost of spark plugs can differ a lot. It depends on the material of manufacture and the distributed discharge. The second option, in turn, must be selected for the type and composition of fuel on which the engine operates. Aircraft fueled with high-octane fuel, which provides good flammability. Nevertheless, it is difficult to buy suitable aviation spark plugs. You cannot find them in ordinary parts stores.
That is why the Crew Shop in Kiev offers you to purchase specialized spark plug for aircraft internal combustion engines: well-known manufacturers, from reliable materials and with a long service life.
What are the aviation spark plugs
Like automotive, the spark plugs for aircraft consist of a central electrode and an auxiliary one. This design has not changed for many years, proving its effectiveness. Therefore, spark plugs are:
- With one electrode. In this case, the main and auxiliary electrodes are located in the spark plugs flask. The discharge running between them ignites the fuel. Plus is that the ignition occurs quickly, but this design runs out quite fast.
- With multiple electrodes. In such a plug there are several additional electrodes. Between them and the main electrode, discharges occur consecutively. This somewhat complicates the process of ignition, but prolongs the life of the plug by an order of magnitude. Of course, the price of such models is higher, but they are considerably ahead of one-electrode reliability.
For aircraft, you need to carefully choose the material of the spark plugs. It is recommended to buy aviation spark plugs from platinum or iridium. The properties of these materials make it easy to transfer overloads and temperature differences overboard.
