R&M Walsh are proud to supply a full range of pre-chamber spark plugs to fit a variety of industrial gas engines.
The same range as available from Hatraco, the pre-chamber spark plugs we provide are more efficient than many conventional spark plugs, reducing NoX emissions and energy consumption.
As one of the UK’s official Hatraco suppliers, we are extremely impressed by the Dutch supplier’s latest range of pre-chamber spark plugs on offer.
Hatraco is one of the world’s leading specialists in ignition and control products for industrial gas and diesel engines, and already sells an impressive selection of components – used in a wide range of applications. So we were very interested to get our hands on their latest spark plug range.
We weren’t disappointed. Their new pre-chamber spark plugs combine high energy ignition with pre-chamber plug technology, to allow engines to operate on a leaner fuel mixture without the risk of misfires. The result is a technology that at the same time allows sustained high power output and low emissions – without compromising the lifespan of the component.

Spark plugs for stationary gas-operated industrial engines must be able to withstand non-stop operation while demonstrating considerable durability over long replacement intervals. The Federal-Mogul/Beru heavy duty spark plug range is manufactured from the highest quality materials and are very resistant to combustion, offering longevity and excellent performance – and they are available now from R & M Walsh.
All gas-powered combustion engines need spark plugs to run. The spark plugs convert a high-voltage electrical charge into the spark needed to ignite a mixed gas and air intake, turning cylinders and turbines to provide electrical generation or repetitive kinetic motion.
Every high-energy spark plug used in an industrial engine needs to be fixed to a housing chamber by a wrenched socket. This firm casing allows the spark plug to dissipate the immense heat it generates via the cylinder head, and align with its gas and electrical contacts. (more…)
2000 hours is the average lifespan of a standard industrial spark plug. There are a wide variety of engine faults that can be caused by bad installation, malfunctions, misuse, contamination, or simple bad luck.
The new industrial spark plug DENSO GE 2-3, developed for state-of-the-art industrial, gas-powered combustion engines is now here. The GE2-3 is built for high-stress environments, with its longer ceramic insulator which offers best flashover protection, and its integrated stress resistant monolithic resistor suppresses electromagnetic interference (EMI). It has a J-type electrode design and use of higher erosion resistance materials, a centre electrode with a laser-welded iridium alloy pad and a protruding ground electrode with copper core and laser-welded iridium pad. This spark plug is ideally suited for operation with natural and special gases. (more…)
Double iridium spark plugs are a special type of spark plug equipped with iridium laser welded onto the centre and ground electrodes. They’re used in industrial combustion engines to convert an electrical charge into an ignition spark, powering a cylinder and piston to create movement. But why are Double iridium plugs considered to be so much better than other spark plugs? Here are five good reasons. (more…)
Iridium spark plugs are a common type of combustion engine ignition device found in industrial engines worldwide. They’re known for their strength, reliability, conductivity, and strong resistance to extreme internal temperatures.
They’re fitted into the engine and connected via a HT lead to the ignition coil. The coil temporarily powers the plug with a fixed electrical voltage. When the engine is started, iridium spark plugs convert this electrical charge into the spark needed to light the air-fuel mixture. (more…)
