About Iridium Plug
A spark plug is a device for delivering electric current from an ignition system to the combustion chamber of a spark-ignition engine to ignite the compressed fuel/air mixture by an electric spark, while containing combustion pressure within the engine. Spark plug has precious and other metals in the center and side electrode. The metal channels the high voltage from the spark plug wire through the spark plug so it can spark when it goes across the small gap between the central electrode and the side electrode. This is the vital spark that starts the combustion process. Iridium spark plugs feature a fine wire center electrode that is designed to conduct electrical energy better and increase firing efficiency. There is heavy price for this precious metal. Iridium spark plugs are typically the most expensive spark plug. When you switch to Iridium spark plugs acceleration is improved. There is a fast response to throttle operation and you can feel the difference compared to original plug. Iridium spark plugs improve the engine performance in terms of power. The extra power becomes apparent in situations like climbing hills, giving you a comfortable driving and touring experience. The ultra-fine center electrode of an Iridium spark plug ensures fast ignition and improves the engine's starting characteristics. These plugs provide both economic and environmental benefits. Iridium spark plugs improve the engine performance in terms of power. The idling is stable and there is better fuel economy. Since Iridium spark plugs ensure excellent ignition, the gasoline is burned efficiently.
What is the purpose of Iridium Plug?
Iridium spark plugs feature a fine wire center electrode that is designed to conduct electrical energy better and increase firing efficiency. Iridium spark plugs improve the engine performance in terms of power. The idling is stable and there is better fuel economy. Other advantage of having iridium spark plugs is that they use less voltage compared to platinum and copper. Iridium spark plugs are easily distinguished by narrow electrode tips that look like the tip of a pen. Most iridium spark plugs feature a shaped channel on the electrode, which prevents sparks from extinguishing
How Iridium Plug Works?
Electrical current travels from the battery to the induction coil, which raises the voltage to ignite the plugs. Spark Plugs are necessary to produce a smooth burn. Each spark plug is connected to an ignition system. When high voltage is generated by the coil, electrical impulses travel from the ignition coil through insulated plug wires. Spark plugs require voltage in excess of 20,000 volts from a lower voltage battery. Once the voltage exceeds the dielectric strength of the gases, a spark jumps the gap at the plug's firing end and the air/fuel mixture is ignited.
Where is Iridium Plug Located?
Iridium spark plugs are fitted on the engine cylinder head.
