The Delphi Glow Plug range offers a number of key technologies that vary according to vehicle manufacturers specification. The extensive range includes Dual Coil, Long Post Heat, single and wire type glow plugs.

All new introductions are geared towards long post heat technology. The latest 'intelligent' design ensures more effective combustion and improved emissions, resulting in smoother cold engine running. The Delphi Dual Coil range similarly offers improved reliability and performance.

Delphi is constantly researching new technology and design principles in order advance our product portfolio and provide the ultimate plug.

The Delphi Glow Plug range covers in excess of 95% of the European and Japanese Vehicle Parc including many of the latest vehicles.

Delphi also offers a comprehensive range of glow plug controllers. Like glow plugs, controllers are essential for the efficient starting of most car and LCV diesel engines.

By energising the glow plugs for the right period of time, as exacted by the starting conditions, they increase fuel efficiency from start up, and improve engine running while in use. They also aid the driver by controlling the dash warning light.

Delphi controllers deliver excellent performance and are strongly recognised within the automotive trade.

To complete the Diesel Starting Aid programme Delphi presents a broad range of Thermostarts. The Thermostart, originally designed and registered as a trademark of Lucas, is an integral and fundamental part of the engines starting system, in enhancing starting in all conditions.

Delphi Thermostarts are fitted on a wide range of commercial vehicles, trucks and tractors, in addition to industrial and marine engines, and have been specified by many leading manufacturers.

Delphi Thermostarts reduce poor starting, battery and starter motor problem, black smoke and excessive fuel consumption.
