Results of numerical modeling are used for validating the governing role of the ratio of areas of contact between the heater with the combustible liquid and the formed vapor-gas mixture in a complex of interrelated processes of heat and mass transfer at gas-phase ignition of a liquid condensed substance film by small-size hot metal particle. Critical values of the ratio at which the ignition conditions cannot be realized are marked out. Ranges of varying the main igniter parameters for which the influence of the parameter on the ignition parameters may be neglected are determined.
