The Surface Igniter family of hot surface igniters is the latest refinement of the product originally produced in 1969.


Today's igniter combines:

The Surface Igniter D and DC families of hot surface igniters combine our traditional two - piece igniter design with a base clip, while our DC design offers our "shock-mount" configuration offering the dryer manufacture a wide range of possibilities.
