SmartBake® Rectification Ignitors:

Rec Ignitor

The SmartBake® rectification ignitor is designed to provide highly reliable ribbon burner ignition when used with a DSI system on both existing and new direct fired ovens. It is simple to install and adjust. Your (Ignitor?) settings and positioning are maintained through all oven operating conditions.

The rectification ignitor is constructed to spark to itself, direct fuel to the burner’s ignition point and facilitates rectification burner flame status monitoring. The SmartBake® rectification ignitor’s design allows independent adjustment of the ignition spark gap and provides a favorable flame rectification environment through all burner firing rates.
