LPG LaserLine spark plugs are dual precious metal spark plugs when were specifically developed for gas-fuelled engines. The combustion of gas is very different from the combustion of petrol and, therefore, requires spark plugs which are specially adapted to these conditions. The gas-air mixtures are more difficult to ignite. More ignition voltage is required and the risk of failure of the ignition coils increases. A narrow, laser-welded middle electrode with iridium chip which gets by on less ignition voltage counteracts this. In addition, the electrode distance is pre-set to only 0.8 mm. The combustion of gas results in higher temperatures. Conventional electrode and housing materials wear out more quickly. That is not the case with iridium, which is used on the middle electrode of LPG LaserLine spark plugs. For the same purpose the earth electrode has a platinum chip. A special coating protects the housing of the spark plug against corrosion. A copper core in the earth electrode supports optimal thermal conductivity.

LPG Specific Spark Plugs Recognising that the market lacked a range of spark plugs designed specifically for gas-powered engines, NGK developed a range of eight double-precious-metal-type spark plugs designed specifically for use in gas-powered engines, called LPG LaserLine. Running an LPG engine with standard spark plugs can significantly reduce the service life of the plugs. However, by using NGKs LPG specific plugs, not only are you likely to exceed the originally specified service life, but also avoid some of the misfire problems associated with LPG conversions. LPG LaserLine offers the Aftermarket a range of spark plugs that makes conversion and servicing easier and more reliable. Cutting-Edge Technology The combustion characteristics of gas are very different from that of petrol. A gas-air mixture is more difficult to ignite, therefore choosing a suitable plug is often difficult and time consuming. Required ignition voltage increases with gas, places significantly more stress on the ignition coils therefore increasing the risk of their failure. Also the temperatures at the plug are higher which means the standard plug heat range may not be suitable.

All LPG LaserLine spark plugs utilise NGKs very latest technology. An iridium chip welded to the centre electrode allows its diameter to be reduced to just 0.6mm, considerably enhancing ignition performance. This enables the flame front to spread rapidly and evenly inside the combustion chamber, thus improving engine efficiency. Additionally, the slim electrode requires less ignition voltage. This is exceptionally important because gas is harder to ignite than petrol and ignition voltage requirement can rise by 7,000 volts. This fine electrode design therefore considerably reduces the risk of coil failure. The use of precious metals offers many benefits in gas operations including decreasing the risk of hot gas corrosion which is much higher than with normal petrol operations as a result of the increased combustion temperatures. Additionally, the ignition performance of standard nickel spark plugs can deteriorate rapidly and will fall far short of the normal service interval an effect which will not occur using LPG LaserLine types. Apart from the electrodes, there are two additional features which make LPG LaserLine unique in the market. The electrode gap of all LPG LaserLine spark plugs has already been set to match operation on gas so workshop staff can simply install without the need for prior adjustment. In addition the metal shell of the plugs features a special chrome alloy coating which shields it from the aggressive and corrosion promoting conditions found in LPG engines. Although the NGK range of LaserLine LPG plugs has been available for some time, it is difficult to gauge the exact size of the overall UK market as most gas-powered cars are converted by specialists after initial registration. In spite of this, the LPG LaserLine range is said to include a perfect spark plug match for approximately 90% of all conversion-capable passenger cars in the UK.
A: U-groove spark plugs are a patented design invented by DENSO to improve spark plug ignitability and reduce quenching of the spark. The U-groove shape cut into the ground electrode allows the spark to expand and fill the gap created by the U shape, enabling the spark plug to ignite leaner mixtures, leading to fewer misfires. The U-groove is located on the ground electrode to minimise wear and ensure the U-groove lasts the lifetime of the plug.

NGK Laserline Iridium LPG Plugs

Due to ever increasing fuel prices LPG (Liquid Propane Gas) conversions are becoming more commonplace in the UK and Europe. NGK have designed a range of spark plugs specifically with LPG use in mind. Part numbers range from LPG1 - LPG8, these eight different designs cover the vast majority of petrol engined vehicles in the UK and Europe. A fine Iridium centre electrode and an embedded platinum chip in the ground electrode add to the performance and service life. The use of high grade materials (superior to those of standard spark plugs) prevents contamination, abnormal erosion and wear. Initial investment cost is high but overall costs are reduced due to the extended plug service life and improved fuel economy. We keep the entire LPG range in stock. Yes, NGK have released a range of plugs which are designed to work more efficiently and last longer for LPG applications. The plugs feature a platinum chip in the ground electrode and a fine wire Iridium centre electrode. The thread and other metal parts are plated differently to reduce the possibility of a negative reaction to LPG. Part numbers are LPG1 - LPG8, these cover a very large percentage of the UK car market. Denso also have a couple of part numbers specifically aimed and LPG fuelled vehicles.
