Tenneco introduces new range of Champion industrial ignition spark plugs 

May 10, 2023

Tenneco's Powertrain business group is launching a range of new Champion industrial spark plug for industrial applications. The newly designed ignition offerings represent an economical double Iridium solution which rounds out Tenneco's Champion aftermarket value plug portfolio.

"Our two latest Champion industrial spark plugs, in a M14 range with HEX16mm and a new stronger ceramic, yield additional electrical and mechanical strength," said Volker Scherer, director industrial ignition, sales and engineering, Tenneco. "The new designs, designated C-4001, are intended for use in stationary biogas and natural-gas commercial truck, bus, and construction machinery applications."

These double Iridium M14 J-Gap high performance spark plugs, offered with nominal electrode gaps of 0.25mm for stationary usage and 0.40mm for on- and off-road applications, feature a series of design advances. A new ceramic formula for improved electrical and mechanical strength enables greater resistance against high-voltage failures. A unique Ni-plated shell hot-locking assembly increases mechanical robustness against dynamic combustion pressure. Further, the combination of laser-welded iridium pads and a tailored mass of precious metals provides lifetime improvements over similar spark plug technologies on the market.

Tenneco industrial ignition products are sold under the GOETZE, Auburn and Champion brands globally; they are industry technologies servicing all heavy-duty and industrial engine segments, including on- and off-highway, marine, power generation, compression/pumping, and heating.
