3-Phase Technology BERU Glow Plugs for modern diesel engines (Types GE & GN)

Car manufacturers worldwide are opting for the innovative three-phase glow technology making the starting operation quick, reliable and green. The BorgWarner 3-phase glow plugs are available in both the GE and GN type.

Description of 3-Phase Technology:

  • Phase 1: Pre-heating initiated when ignition starts
  • Phase 2: Heating during starting
  • Phase 3: Post-heating - the glow plugs continue to be heated for approx. 3 minutes after the engine is started

Advantages of 3-Phase Technology:

  • Diesel fuel burnt more fully and with less noise
  • Clouding of the exhaust gas is reduced by up to 40%

GE and GN glow plugs in 2-coil technology are fitted with a heating coil designed to maintain the optimal heating temperature and a regulator coil that effectively protects the glow plug from overheating, thereby making these BorgWarner diesel car glow plugs reliable and durable.

GE glow plugs are performance-optimized. They are the controlled glow plug used in engines of the latest generations, featuring a programmable microcontroller in the glow time control unit to flawlessly control the starting operation. 

The BorgWarner Glow Plug range types GE & GN features:

  • Quick start glow plugs in new, slim shape
  • Short preheating time of approx. 2 to 7 seconds
  • Reliable starting (even at -30 °C!)
  • Can be used for post-heating, as a result environmentally friendly: up to 40% less pollutant emissions during the warm up phase
  • No more cold start knocking
  • Quiet engine running
  • Protects the engine during starting
