The Jetstream 4 air starter motor is an extremely rugged and proven starter motor. It's durable in harsh or dirty conditions and can be fitted wherever space is at a premium.Find out more
IPU provides a full range of air starters including starter motors and whole systems. We even offer a full installation and commissioning service. Many clients choose pneumatic starting as it is a reliable and powerful method of starting an engine. You can even use your existing air supply to minimise costs and reduce the need for large air tanks.
Pages 16-19 of our handbook offer a useful guide to IPU’s range of air starters, and how they can improve the reliability of your engine – Click here to request your free copy
When the engine starting sequence is initiated a rush of compressed air is released. This strikes the primary turbine wheel and causes it to rotate at high speed. As the air exits the first wheel it strikes each subsequent wheel causing each to turn. Eventually the wheels reach speeds of between 25 to 40 thousand rpm. This velocity is reduced by about 10:1 inside a planetary gearbox sitting just in front of the turbine mechanism.
Air starter motors and systems are compatible with marine engines used for auxiliary applications including electrical power generation for emergency or ship service power, diesel electric propulsion, power units, fire pumps and hydraulic units.
