ITT Controls gives optimal care to clients with the widest possible range of products and brands. ITT Controls wants to meet the demand for different components and alternatives in the oil and gas industry.

Piezo ignition is a type of ignition that is used in portable camping stoves, gas grills and some lighters and guns. It consists of a small, spring loaded hammer which, when a key is pressed, a single crystal of PZT or quartz crystal touches. Piezoelectric quartz, which means that a voltage is produced when deformed. This sudden strong deformation produces a high voltage and subsequent electrical discharge which ignites the gas.

No external electrical connection is required but sometimes wires are used to generate sparks. Piezo ignition systems can be operated by a lever or pushbutton or integrated regulator. An electric spark is generated by rotating the knob or pressing the button.

Lighters with piezo-electric ignition do not usually work at great heights or have difficulty in igniting as the percussion is misaligned. They are not suitable for mountaineering and other high altitude applications. At high altitudes the chance that a lighter will work with a piezoelectric ignition is very small.
