A FLUIDIC FUEL OIL IGNITOR
A prototype fluidic ignitor for remote or automatic ignition of boiler generators has been developed at the Naval Ship Engineering Center's Philadelphia Division. The ignitor utilizes a fluidic device known as a Hartman oscillator. Previously, no valid theory had been developed to explain the generation of heat by the Hartman oscillator. The NAVSEC research resulted in a proper theoretical description of the energy transfer through the oscillator and made possible the design of a fluidic ignitor. The prototype has successfully achieved ignition of burners for the main boilers of Navy ships.
