Russian term or phrase: калильная свеча
Here's the passage:

«Далее через шесть форсунок (стальные трубочки диаметром 0,7 мм) в камеру сгорания начинает поступать газовая смесь (пропан и бутан), которая поджигается авиамодельной калильной свечой. После начала устойчивого горения в соседние форсунки начинает подаваться керосин.»

This is from an (as you can see) excruciatingly-detailed description of the inner workings of a jet engine. The engine is a JetCat jet engine for model aircraft, if that has any relevance.
