Air Starters vs. Electric Starters

 

Air starters have many advantages to electric starters, especially in commercial and high demand environments. Ingersoll Rand air starters are best-in-class and feature much higher reliability and longer service intervals compared to electric starters. Becuase of thier robust design, you can depend on them to provide higher cranking power for extended periods, and they never overheat. Air starters are not affected by temperatures; from high heat to sub-zero they provide full cranking power on demand.

Another big advantage of air starters over electric starters is that air starters eliminate the risk of igniting fumes and causing explosions in hazardous environments as there is no electrical current or spark, making them the ideal choice for oil, gas, and mining applications.

The newest Ingersoll Rand Turbine Starter designs have been specifically designed to maintain power in dirty and dusty conditions as well giving them far greater reliability. When maintenance time finally does come around, service is straightforward as there are fewer moving parts to deal with.

Ingersoll Rand starters have proven to live up to thier reputation over a number of years in a range of industries. Numerous major OEM engine builders use IR starters on their new engines - straight off the assembly line. With a line covering all sizes of diesel, gas, and gas turbine applications you can be sure to find the BEST starter for your needs.
