Silicone Nitrate upgrade


I have a Intertherm/Nordyne MM in a trailer.Circa 1996.It is Direct HSI with no flame sensor rod.The control mod it Universal Electronics 1018 series.Model 1018 204-9523.I am very interested in the new silicone nitrate igniters.Since these won't sense flame as the carbide type will.If i add a flame sensor to a control that has this provision,will I be able to use the nitrate type? Thanks!

I want the added life cycle.Just FYI.I'm no stranger to mechanics.I am an OTR owner/operator. I own my rig.I service/overhaul my own stuff.Tractor and trailer.I also service my own HVAC equipment and everything else around my house.The reason I looked for this forum.I'd just like to know if this is doable and if you or anyone else may have any advise.I would be very grateful.

Never done it myself but if the ignition control has a space for a flame sensor then your plan should work.

Well then yes, you can. It's considered an upgrade.

Hope this helps.

As you already know, a nitride ignitor will not sense a flame and as Marty said, you have to have some place on the ignition for a flame sensor or your furnace will simply continually shut itself off and then lock itself out.
