Unison Designs New CF34-8C/E Igniter

LE BOURGET, France (Business Wire) -- Unison Industries announced the newly designed CF34-8C/E extended life Igniter. The design is certified for use on CF34-8C1/-8C5/-8E1 platforms. It creates lower operating costs with a longer life extension resulting in reduced maintenance, an upgrade that mitigates side wall erosion, and higher temperature endurance to improve overall engine performance.

The CF34-8C/E is engineered for performance, low cost, and reliability for the long haul. It will meet the most demanding continuous duty service customer's experience.

“Today's turbine engines must stand up to ever increasing environmental and operational extremes. That's why fleet operators of every size rely on Unison Igniters,” said Elaine O'Neill, general manager of Electrical Products of Unison Industries. “As a complete ignition systems provider, Unison works with OEMs worldwide to make sure every igniter, lead and exciter works together for more flight time with less maintenance. Our manufacturing methods ensure cost-conscious construction without compromising quality.”

Unison's fully certified CF34-8C/E configuration includes induction-fused glass seals, pioneered by Unison, to resist today's extreme combustor pressures. Proprietary alloys reduce terminal arching and pitting to increase igniter and lead life. Optimized tip geometry configuration and material composition resist typical spark erosion to assure greater durability and lower operating costs. Combined anti-wear, thermal and non-stick finishes then result in an igniter that takes heat and vibration in stride, even under continuous sparking conditions.

Unison Industries, LLC, is a leader in the design, manufacture and integration of electrical and mechanical components and systems for aircraft engines and airframes. Unison serves both original equipment manufacturers and aftermarket customers in commercial, military and general aviation markets. Unison's headquarters are in Jacksonville, FL and it employs more than 4,000 people in fifteen manufacturing facilities and logistics centers worldwide.
