The PRQ series air and gas starter for gas turbine engines has a wide range of torque for various starting requirements.
Turbine starters are the newest addition to the
line. Models are available to accommodate engines
from 500 CID Diesel (8.25 liters diesel) to 12,000
CID Diesel ( 200 liters diesel). All PRQ starters
are gas sealed and will crank gas engines to
twice the displacement of diesel engines. (Gas
engines have one half the compression ratios
of Diesel engines).
The 22 series turbines will
start diesel engines up to 22 liters (1333 CID),
twice the displacement for gas. The 22 is only
available in right handed rotation. There is
both an inertia drive model as well as an overhung
pre-engaged. The overhung model allows for the
use of smaller diameter pinions that are often
used with European and Asian engine ring gears.
The inertia drive models are able to accommodate
6/8 and 8/10 pitch ring gears found on North
- Starters for gas turbine engines
- Pre-engaged dentil drives
- Separate drive inserts
- Less airflow required than turbine starters
- Designed for maximum mounting flexibility, housing may be independently positioned with respect to each other
