The Q-87 is a self-contained Class 1 oil or gas igniter used for burner ignition, stabilization or boiler warm-up. It is available in capacities ranging from 8 to 30 MBTU/hr. The Q-87 igniter is suitable for both new and retroﬁ t applications in a wide variety of burner designs. For oil applications, the Q-87 igniter is designed for air, steam or mechanically atomized.
The Q-87 consists of a guide tube assembly, fuel gun and High Energy Spark Igniter (HESI). The guide tube assembly contains the working parts of the igniter and houses the fuel gun and HESI rod. A stainless steel diffuser is attached to the tip of the fuel gun guide tube to assist in providing a stable ﬂame. The fuel gun has a retraction assembly that moves the gun into ﬁ ring position and back into the guide tube when it is not in service. The guide tube transports cooling air from a low pressure air source to the igniter tip, keeping the gun tip and diffuser cool, as well as foreign material away from the tip.
A factory mounted NEMA-4 junction box with all on-board electrical devices pre-wired to terminals is a standard feature which reduces installation time.
A 12-joule HESI provides the ignition source for the fuel. The HESI features non-fouling surface gap spark plug that is easily replaced for maintenance by a threaded connection between the HESI tip and the HESI rod. Q-87 Oil or Gas Igniter
