Glow plugs

Glow plugs

Glow plugs are part of the ignition system in diesel engines. They provide the temperature of ignition of the fuel, even under the most adverse conditions.

The glow plug is a metal with a heating element at the tip. This heating element, when electrified, heats due to its electrical resistance and begins to emit light in the visible spectrum, hence the term "glow" plug. Heat generated by the glowplugs is directed into the cylinders, and serves to warm the engine block immediately surrounding the cylinders.

 
VeGa glow plugs are distinguished by their high quality and precision craftsmanship. 
 
Some of the advantages of glow plugs VeGa are:
 
Fast response, providing quick access to the operating temperature             and engine start
Stable operation of the engine in cold mode
Maintain temperature extended period of time, which significantly                 reduces exhaust emissions
Long exploitation life
 
 
 
Glow plugs are crucial to a good start and reliable operation of diesel engines Ignition of air-fuel mixture in the diesel engines is done not by passing an electric spark like in common gasoline engines but by compressing the air which is in the cylinder and injecting fuel at a certain moment before the piston reaches the TDC.  As a result of this compression the temperature of the air raises and provides conditions for self ignition of the fuel.  Glow plugs not only help a cold start by raising the temperature, but also help further the so-called post-heating: glow plugs continue to work around three minutes after start. In this way the reduction of emissions in cold condition engines is done.
