Low Temperature Igniter Project

In order to ignite Cool Gas Generators reliably at very low temperatures, a new and reliable ignition system has to be developed that has the lowest impact possible on the Cool Gas Generator but also allows a reliable ignition of a large range of temperatures. HDES Service & Engineering evaluated different  ignition systems and selected the best solution. On the basis of this solution a design was made of a suitable igniter and small scale tests were conducted to prove its feasibility.

This igniter is meant for the future oxygen cool gas generators HDES is developing like the EVE below.
