This invention relates to continuous combustion apparatus and more particularly to means for starting and maintaining continuous combustion of gases therein. In the development of my invention, I have provided an igniter having an ignition chamber communicating with the combustion chamber of said apparatus. It is the general object of my invention to provide improved means for producing and maintaining an ignition flame in said igniter and for projecting said flame into the combustion chamber of said apparatus.
To the attainment of the latter object, a further feature of my invention relates to the provision of means for supplying additional oxidizing fluid to said ignition flame as it enters the combustion chamber.
I also provide an improved control device by which the combustible and oxidizing fluids and the electric spark may be simultaneously turned on, and by further movement of which the spark may be turned off without interrupting the flow of either fluid.
