Have you ever noticed how gas stove lighter works ? Do you wanted to know what are the technologies used in lighter and what is it’s history. Read this blog to know all about lighter.

Stove lighter’s are widely used in both house and restaurant and also used in camping. It uses Piezoelectric Ignition System where it generates sparks with the help of electric charge. Stove Lighter has mall hammer that strikes or compresses a piezoelectric crystal and then electric charge produce after that when you switch on your stove it catches fire due to that LPG gas.

In this post we will discuss all interesting questions you have in you mind about Gas Stove Lighter like How it Works, which technology it uses and more .


How Gas Stove Lighter Works?

If we talk How Stove lighter works then it follows simple steps to works. Let’s talk about these simple steps.

Piezoelectric Ignition System

Piezoelectric Ignition System

Piezoelectric Ignition System is a common technology used in gas stove lighter. Here’s how it works:

  1. When you press ignition button it activates mechanism inside the lighter.
  2. This mechanism has small hammer that strikes piezoelectric crystal.
  3. This mechanical force applied on crystal generates electric charge due to the piezoelectric effect.
  4. Now electric charge is transferred to a spark electrode which is located near the burner of the gas stove.
  5. When you switch on your LPG gas. your stove burner continues to release gas and then fire catches due to spark of gas stove lighter.
