C Crankshaft W Water jacket for coolant flow The plug is connected to the high voltage generated by an ignition coil or magneto. As current flows from the coil, a voltage develops between the central and side electrodes. Initially no current can flow because the fuel and air in the gap is an insulator, but as the voltage rises further it begins to change the structure of the gases between the electrodes. Once the voltage exceeds the dielectric strength of the gases, the gases become ionized. The ionized gas becomes a conductor and allows current to flow across the gap. They supply higher current during the discharge process, resulting in a hotter and longer-duration spark. The intense heat in the spark channel causes the ionized gas to expand very quickly, like a small explosion.
The exact terminal construction varies depending on the use of the spark plug. Most passenger car spark plug wires snap onto the terminal of the plug, but some wires have eyelet connectors which are fastened onto the plug under a nut.
The standard solid non-removable nut SAE configuration is common for many cars and trucks. Plugs which are used for these applications often have the end of the terminal serve a double purpose as the nut on a thin threaded shaft so that they can be used for either type of connection.
This type of spark plug has a removable nut or knurl, which enables its users to attach them to two different kinds of spark plug boots. Some spark plugs have a bare thread, which is a common type for motorcycles and ATVs.
Finally, in very recent years, a cup-style terminal has been introduced, which allows for a longer ceramic insulator in the same confined space. Its major functions are to provide mechanical support and electrical insulation for the central electrode, while also providing an extended spark path for flashover protection.
This extended portion, particularly in engines with deeply recessed plugs, helps extend the terminal above the cylinder head so as to make it more readily accessible. Dissected modern spark plug showing the one-piece sintered alumina insulator. The lower portion is unglazed. A further feature of sintered alumina is its good heat conduction — reducing the tendency for the insulator to glow with heat and so light the mixture prematurely.
Ribs[ edit ] By lengthening the surface between the high voltage terminal and the grounded metal case of the spark plug, the physical shape of the ribs functions to improve the electrical insulation and prevent electrical energy from leaking along the insulator surface from the terminal to the metal case. The disrupted and longer path makes the electricity encounter more resistance along the surface of the spark plug even in the presence of dirt and moisture.
Some spark plugs are manufactured without ribs; improvements in the dielectric strength of the insulator make them less important. Older spark plugs, particularly in aircraft, used an insulator made of stacked layers of mica , compressed by tension in the centre electrode. With the development of leaded petrol in the s, lead deposits on the mica became a problem and reduced the interval between needing to clean the spark plug.
Sintered alumina was developed by Siemens in Germany to counteract this.
It also allows a simple single piece construction at low cost but high mechanical reliability. The dimensions of the insulator and the metal conductor core determine the heat range of the plug. Short insulators are usually "cooler" plugs, while "hotter" plugs are made with a lengthened path to the metal body, though this also depends on the thermally conductive metal core.
Seals[ edit ] Because the spark plug also seals the combustion chamber of the engine when installed, seals are required to ensure there is no leakage from the combustion chamber.
The external seal is usually a crush washer , but some manufacturers use the cheaper method of a taper interface and simple compression to attempt sealing. Spark plug threads are cold rolled to prevent thermal cycle fatigue. It's important to install spark plugs with the correct "reach," or thread length.
Spark plugs can vary in reach from 0. Non-resistor spark plugs, commonly sold without an "R" in the plug type part number, lack this element to reduce electro-magnetic interference with radios and other sensitive equipment.
The tip can be made of a combination of copper , nickel - iron , chromium , or noble metals. In the late s, the development of engines reached a stage where the heat range of conventional spark plugs with solid nickel alloy centre electrodes was unable to cope with their demands.
A plug that was cold enough to cope with the demands of high speed driving would not be able to burn off the carbon deposits caused by stop—start urban conditions, and would foul in these conditions, making the engine misfire. Similarly, a plug that was hot enough to run smoothly in town could melt when called upon to cope with extended high speed running on motorways.
The answer to this problem, devised by the spark plug manufacturers, was to use a different material and design for the centre electrode that would be able to carry the heat of combustion away from the tip more effectively than a solid nickel alloy could. Copper was the material chosen for the task and a method for manufacturing the copper-cored centre electrode was created by Floform. The central electrode is usually the one designed to eject the electrons the cathode , i.
As a result, vehicles with such a system should have precious metals on both electrodes, not just on the central electrode, in order to increase service replacement intervals since they wear down the metal more quickly in both directions, not just one. Instead, the electrons emit from the sharp edges of the end of the electrode; as these edges erode, the spark becomes weaker and less reliable.
At one time it was common to remove the spark plugs, clean deposits off the ends either manually or with specialized sandblasting equipment and file the end of the electrode to restore the sharp edges, but this practice has become less frequent for three reasons: cleaning with tools such as a wire brush leaves traces of metal on the insulator which can provide a weak conduction path and thus weaken the spark increasing emissions.
The development of noble metal high temperature electrodes using metals such as yttrium , iridium , tungsten , or palladium , as well as the relatively high value platinum , silver or gold allows the use of a smaller center wire, which has sharper edges but will not melt or corrode away.
These materials are used because of their high melting points and durability, not because of their electrical conductivity which is irrelevant in series with the plug resistor or wires. The smaller electrode also absorbs less heat from the spark and initial flame energy.
At one point, Firestone marketed plugs with polonium in the tip, under the questionable[ by whom? Side ground, earth electrode[ edit ] The side electrode also known as the "ground strap" is made from high nickel steel and is welded or hot forged to the side of the metal shell.
The side electrode also runs very hot, especially on projected nose plugs. Some designs have provided a copper core to this electrode, so as to increase heat conduction. Multiple side electrodes may also be used, so that they don't overlap the central electrode. The ground electrode can also have small pads of platinum or even iridium added to them in order to increase service life. Spark plugs are typically designed to have a spark gap which can be adjusted by the technician installing the spark plug, by bending the ground electrode slightly.
The same plug may be specified for several different engines, requiring a different gap for each.
Spark plugs in automobiles generally have a gap between 0. The gap may require adjustment from the out-of-the-box gap. A spark plug gap gauge is a disc with a sloping edge, or with round wires of precise diameters, and is used to measure the gap. Use of a feeler gauge with flat blades instead of round wires, as is used on distributor points or valve lash, will give erroneous results, due to the shape of spark plug electrodes. With current engine technology, universally incorporating solid state ignition systems and computerized fuel injection , the gaps used are larger on average than in the era of carburetor s and breaker point distributors, to the extent that spark plug gauges from that era cannot always measure the required gaps of current cars.
A narrow gap may give too small and weak a spark to effectively ignite the fuel-air mixture, but the plug will almost always fire on each cycle. A gap that is too wide might prevent a spark from firing at all or may misfire at high speeds, but will usually have a spark that is strong for a clean burn. A spark which intermittently fails to ignite the fuel-air mixture may not be noticeable directly, but will show up as a reduction in the engine's power and fuel efficiency.
Variations on the basic design[ edit ] Spark plug with two side ground electrodes Over the years variations on the basic spark plug design have attempted to provide either better ignition, longer life, or both.
Such variations include the use of two, three, or four equally spaced ground electrodes surrounding the central electrode. Other variations include using a recessed central electrode surrounded by the spark plug thread, which effectively becomes the ground electrode see "surface-discharge spark plug", below. Also there is the use of a V-shaped notch in the tip of the ground electrode. Multiple ground electrodes generally provide longer life, as when the spark gap widens due to electric discharge wear, the spark moves to another closer ground electrode.
The disadvantage of multiple ground electrodes is that a shielding effect can occur in the engine combustion chamber inhibiting the flame face as the fuel air mixture burns.
This can result in a less efficient burn and increased fuel consumption. They also are difficult or nearly impossible to adjust to another uniform gap size. Surface-discharge spark plug[ edit ] A piston engine has a part of the combustion chamber that is always out of reach of the piston; and this zone is where the conventional spark plug is located.
A Wankel engine has a permanently varying combustion area; and the spark plug is inevitably swept by the tip seals. Clearly, if a spark plug were to protrude into the Wankel's combustion chamber it would foul the rotating tip; and if the plug were recessed to avoid this, the sunken spark might lead to poor combustion. So a new type of "surface discharge" plug was developed for the Wankel.
Such a plug presents an almost flat face to the combustion chamber. A stubby centre electrode projects only very slightly; and the entire earthed body of the plug acts as the side electrode. The "plug gap" remains constant throughout its life; and the spark path will continually vary instead of darting from the centre to the side electrode as in a conventional plug.
Whereas a conventional side electrode will admittedly, rarely come adrift in use and potentially cause engine damage, this is impossible with a surface discharge plug, as there is nothing to break off. Sealing to the cylinder head[ edit ] Old spark plug removed from a car, new one ready to install. Most spark plugs seal to the cylinder head with a single-use hollow or folded metal washer which is crushed slightly between the flat surface of the head and that of the plug, just above the threads.
Some spark plugs have a tapered seat that uses no washer. E3 DiamondFire Spark Plug advanced electrode produces a flame to create more. This brings the spark zone closer to areas of probable good air-fuel mixture.
