The first mode is often called "surface ignition", while the two other modes are the most likely causes of the LSPI (Low Speed Pre-Ignition) [3, 4].
quantified the increased surface ignition likelihood of ethanol blends that also leads to the need to utilize colder spark plugs in engine applications using ethanol blends [16].
When the combustion process does not occur correctly, as in the mentioned phenomenon, or due to the presence of surface ignition, it may generate serious damage to the engine, become a source of noise and vibration, and produce poor engine operating performance.
These grills include hand crafted construction, integrated illumination, hot surface ignition, heat stabiliser and the Trident ProSear technology, which allows for precise grill temperature control to cook different foods at different temperatures at the same time.
Therefore, the Legacy will fit in tight equipment areas and is more easily moved." Robinson continues, "The Legacy self-cleaning hot surface ignition and sealed controls ensure reliability in extreme hot and cold weather.
Surface ignition occurs when the temperature of the air-fuel mixture adjacent to a hot surface exceeds its self-ignition limit.
The new vehicles will use Westport's electronic, directly actuated, high-pressure natural gas fuel injectors, on-board compressor system, electronic controls and hot surface ignition system.
