Enerpulse Introduces Pulstar PlasmaCore Plugs

Representing the fourth generation of the product, Pulstar with PlasmaCore Pulse Plugs benefit from a bigger spark that results in more engine power and extended plug life, according to Enerpulse.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Enerpulse Technologies has added PlasmaCore to its line of Pulstar Pulse Plugs, providing the aftermarket with the next generation of its popular alternative to conventional spark plugs. Representing the fourth generation of the product, Pulstar with PlasmaCore Pulse Plugs benefit from a bigger spark that results in more engine power and extended plug life, according to Enerpulse.
 
Pulstar with PlasmaCore Pulse Plugs have a patented capacitor in the core that stores energy from a vehicle’s ignition coil. Before the spark, PlasmaCore Pulse Plugs release this energy in a quick and powerful burst, forming a fuel-sensitizing plasma field that produces more than 5 million watts of peak power within a few nanoseconds, the company says. By comparison, conventional spark plugs only produce 50 watts of ignition power.
 
“The Pulstar plasma field sensitizes the fuel mixture, ensuring instantaneous ignition, which burns the fuel more quickly and efficiently,” says Lou Camilli, inventor of Pulstar Pulse Plugs and the president and CTO of Enerpulse Technologies. “A faster burn consumes the same amount of fuel more quickly, creating consistent cycle-to-cycle combustion to produce higher average horsepower and torque and quicker throttle response.”
 
According to Camilli, every product goes through product refinements, but the changes from generation three to generation four of the product were significant. Enerpulse has discovered how to utilize a larger electrode, which “almost doubled our energy efficiency,” Camilli added. He says the product brings “intelligent energy management” to the spark plug market.  
 
A bigger spark allows Pulstar with PlasmaCore Pulse Plugs to utilize a larger electrode, which Camilli says is “something spark plug makers have used for decades because it extends plug life.” A larger electrode, in conjunction with a bigger spark, further improves ignition consistency.
 
With a relatively small number of SKUs that accommodate more than 70 percent of late-model vehicles on the road today, retailers and distributors who stock Pulstar with PlasmaCore Pulse Plugs benefit by freeing-up valuable shelf space, according to Enerpulse.
