BERU Glow Plug for Flame Start Systems (Type GF)

More and more commercial vehicles are being equipped with flame start systems to ease cold starting. Once the heating temperature has been reached, fuel enters the evaporator in the flame glow plug via a solenoid valve. In this way a flame is produced that heats the intake air and facilitates reliable, convenient and environmentally friendly cold starting, even at low temperatures.

In commercial vehicle flame start systems, BERU glow plugs contribute to quick, reliable engine starting that protects the engine — even at extremely low temperatures.
