Air starting system
Our medium-speed range uses a direct air starter. For our high-speed emergency application, a pneumatic motor is used. The reliability of these starting methods has been proven to be out of the question and it ensures a quick and smooth start of the engine.
Maintenance required to air starting system is not very demanding as there are few moving parts and these are not prone to suffer wear.
It is desirable that maintenance operations on starting air system are performed by a trained technician as the air operating pressure can reach 30 bar.
