Built to last, designed for simpler servicing, the new GOETZE range of industrial spark plugs provides a proven solution for industrial gas engines
Tenneco Inc.´s (NYSE:TEN) Powertrain business group is launching a range of new GOETZE® branded industrial spark plugs, designed for industrial gas engines. With proven durability for these applications, GOETZE plugs are designed and manufactured for robust, reliable service.
The four new GOETZE industrial spark plugs are designated: G-6001, G-6002, G-6003, and G-6004. These are suitable for power generation applications, including natural gas, biogas, landfill gas and mine gas. Tenneco will continue to offer industrial ignition products under the Champion® brand for use in traditional gas engines for power generation and Oil & Gas industry.
The GOETZE range of industrial spark plugs features a series of design advances. Installation and removal is easier thanks to a design that makes the familiar 7/8-inch (22.2mm) hexagon much higher, giving installation tools a stronger grip. The new spark plugs also feature large, smooth insulators that use stronger ceramics and a more robust steel shell.
In testing on Jenbacher Type 3 engines, the GOETZE G-6001 plugs achieve lifetimes of over 10,000 hours. The G-6001’s solid design and high-strength nickel-plated shell are engineered to withstand more dynamic combustion pressures. The industrial spark plug is produced using GOETZE’s unique hot-locking assembly process, sealing the shell. The unribbed insulator with a monoblock SAE terminal pin provides an enhanced connection with ignition leads. Advanced laser welds increase thermal conductivity, helping improve wear behavior and increase lifetime.
The new GOETZE G-6002 plugs achieve the same 10,000+ hour lifetime in tests on Jenbacher Type 4 engines using a robust design suitable for high-turbulence combustion applications. The GOETZE G-6003 offers a cost-effective, maintenance-free solution with a lifetime of more than 4,000 hours in Jenbacher Type 3 engines. The GOETZE G-6004 provides more than 2,000 hours of maintenance-free operation for Jenbacher Type 6 and Type 9 engine applications with high BMEP values.
