Igniter and Flame sense rod materials

Is there any difference between the material used in a typical igniter electrode and a flame sense electrode?

I am asking because we have a one-of-a-kind oven that has a fenwal ignition module with a single spark and flame sense set up. The igniter electrodes that I can find are just a little short and I always end up with a "fragile" installation on the flame sense side.

I have found a longer flame sense electrode that I should be much better able to position and can ground to the burner body for the spark. I am assuming this would work find but just want to check. The electrode and flame sense products are both made by Fenwal.

Thanks,

This is posted in the gas and oil home heating furnace forum.

Is this used in a cooking oven ?

Flame Sense rod material

It is a commercial oven - but the parts used in it are more like those found in gas furnaces - hence the post here.
