Pulstar Spark Plugs use innovative plasma-assisted combustion technology to increase horsepower and torque.
Pulstar features an internal capacitor, developed with the help of a US Department of Energy laboratory, to store energy that creates a high-intensity electrical pulse when released. This pulse saturates the fuel with combustion-enhancing plasma, ensuring instant ignition and a rapid burn.
Instant ignition and a more complete burn means your vehicle responds quickly. You’ll really feel the difference when pulling away from a stop.
Pulstar’s rapid burn creates higher peak pressure on the piston; applying more torque on the crank shaft, resulting in more power to your wheels.
Burning more fuel during the power stroke means you get the most power from your fuel. Laboratory and dyno testing has repeatedly shown gains in horsepower.
Pulstar burns fuel efficiently, ensuring it isn’t wasted. Whether you see an improvement in power, fuel economy, or both depends on how you drive.
Pulstar uses pulsed power technology to create a powerful 5MW pulse of energy upon spark formation.
Pulstar uses a patented internal capacitor to store and compress energy prior to the spark.
Pulstar’s intense pulse breaks apart the gaseous atoms to form highly-excited plasma.
The plasma-forming pulse allows Pulstar to use a larger electrode, which extends its life.
Pulsed power is the relatively slow accumulation of energy followed by its rapid release, resulting a large amount of instantaneous power. Energy stored in Pulstar’s capacitor prior to the spark is released within nanoseconds, delivering a 5MW pulse of peak power.
Pulstar’s insulator is made of engineered high-purity ceramic, forming a dense barrier between the metal shell (negative plate) and the copper silica gas seal (positive plate.) The insulator acts as a dielectric media, allowing the shell to attract energy but preventing it from crossing. This forces the energy to store on the positive plate until it can cross the spark gap, forming an intense pulse of energy.
Pulstar’s 5MW pulse subjects gaseous atoms to a large amount of energy, breaking them apart to form plasma: a collection of positively and negatively charged highly reactive particles. Plasma created by this high-intensity pulse results in three major benefits in fuel combustion: instant ignition and a quicker and more complete burn.
Because the plasma-forming pulse allows the fuel to ignite immediately and burn rapidly, Pulstar Spark Plugs don't need the extra nanoseconds gained by using a fine wire electrode made durable by precious metals (such as iridium or platinum). Pulstar's electrode life is extended through the use of a larger center wire made of an austenite nickel-chromium-based superalloy known as Inconel.
…these have worked and held up past my expectations. You guys have really made something that is incredible in all aspects of everything. I can't wait to get my next car and get another pair of plugs...
Just installed a set of Pulstar Spark Plugs on my Harley Davidson FLTRU... MUCH smoother ride and a noticeable increase in HP/Accel!
WOW! What a vast improvement! The car is much more "lively" gas pedal response is much "quicker"! The car seems to have much more torque and pulling power. I shall now only use your product.
I race my 2010 V6 Camaro in local and national autocross events against V8s with 100-200 more horsepower, so I need all the extra power I can get... Pulstar spark plugs give me noticeably more power and torque.
The truck ran great before and is a real beast now. I will keep an eye out for gas mileage increase. The torque increase was noticeable immediately.
Immediately I noticed a difference in the RPM and the smoothness. The mileage increased by 2 miles per gallon…when running a Roush 342R at 450 horsepower and 420 foot pounds, it's a lot.
…my 2005 Harley ultra-classic noticed an increase in fuel economy, smoother running and a slight power increase… I was already using other premium iridium plugs and still got a nice gain…
Before installation, the MPG indicator would show about 28-32 MPG...After installing the Pulstar plugs the MPG is now 36-38. In addition, the transmission shifting points are noticeably smoother.
Sandia National Laboratories is operated and managed by a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation and is a contractor for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA); supporting numerous federal, state, and local government agencies, companies, and organizations.
Sandia National Laboratories’ New Mexico Small Business Assistance (NMSBA) Program offers businesses access to scientists, engineers, facilities and other resources with the intention of commercializing technologies found at the Labs. The experts at Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories help businesses gain knowledge and solve challenges utilizing the labs’ cutting-edge technologies.
Enerpulse Technologies, the manufacturer of Pulstar Spark Plugs, has used Sandia National Labs’ NMBSA program twice to help create the technology currently used in our spark plugs.
From 1988-1992 Enerpulse’s founder Lou Camilli worked with the Labs’ Ultra High-power Electromagnetics Division to develop a capacitor for use on an internal combustion engine. Scientists and engineers helped Camilli apply pulsed power technology concepts to the development of his spark plug add-on.
From 1998 to 1999 Camilli worked with the Labs again, using their Ceramics department to help condense his capacitor into the footprint of a conventional spark plug. The Labs helped Camilli find a material with the correct dielectric properties to condense his capacitor into the shape of a spark plug.
In 1992 Sandia National Labs became the first to purchase our capacitor for use in their Z machine. Our capacitor is used to ensure all 14 lasers in Sandia’s Z Machine are triggered at precisely the same time.
Independent testing has verified Pulstar’s increased performance through improved fuel burn.
Enerpulse Technologies is a technology driven company; we conduct extensive research, development, and testing with highly regarded third party facilities. The following are peer-reviewed articles that reinforce the benefit claims of Pulstar Spark Plugs with research conducted by our president and Chief Technology Officer, Lou Camilli, and other reputable individuals in the fields of internal combustion ignition and pulsed power technology.
Pulstar Spark Plugs are available Internationally.
