DESCRIPTION TECHNICAL SPECS
 
This air compression ignitor or fire syringe demonstrates how the compression of air increases temperature and pressure inside a cylinder. A small piece of cotton is placed in the cylinder. After being rapidly compressed, the cotton ball will ignite and force the cylinder back up. This wonderful demonstration tool vividly demonstrates the principles behind diesel engine operation. Includes 2 spare O-Rings, and a small piece of starter cotton. COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS ARE INCLUDED.

**DON'T FORGET TO BUY REPLACEMENT O-RINGS (SEE RELATED ITEMS BOX BELOW).

Lasted about 5 compressions then shattered April 29, 2017
Reviewer: Todd VanSumeren from Smyrna, TN United States  
It was a good experience to learn that fire syringes should not be made from this material.  The whole thing shattered after 5 tries.  Seeing the ignition was great for my kids to help them understand the concept, but I just wish we could have gotten more use out of it.  The kids didn't even get a try.
