What is Pilotless Ignition?
Unlike piloted ignition that requires lighting a pilot before igniting the main burner, pilotless ignition allows an operator to light a main flame directly and eliminates the need for a standing pilot and unnecessary equipment. Because pilotless systems have no standing pilot, the system only uses gas when the main burner is on, thereby saving money and reducing emissions.
Benefits of Pilotless Ignition
Pilotless ignition saves energy by eliminating the need for a standing pilot. Instead of fueling a pilot flame for hours on end, a pilotless system uses gas only when an operator lights the main burner. With pilotless technology, operators bypass the cost of continuously supplying gas to maintain a pilot flame.
Without supplying gas to maintain a pilot flame, a pilotless system effectively reduces site emissions. By eliminating the continuous emissions from pilot combustion, pilotless technology can help operators more easily comply with local and federal EPA regulations.
Pilotless ignition reduces a site’s maintenance needs and overall downtime by streamlining the fuel train. With no pilot flame to maintain, a pilotless system eliminates the need for costly and high-maintenance equipment and parts.
