Ingersoll Rand air starters are flexible, efficient alternatives to electric sources. They create sheer power from the natural environment, and are perfect for a wide range of industrial, marine, and automotive applications.
Ingersoll Rand offers well over 200 cataloged models of air starters with an extensive range of options. In addition, Ingersoll Rand maintains data on hundreds of special application air starters for extreme conditions.
With over 100 years of engineering and manufacturing leadership, Ingersoll Rand is the expert in the technical development of air starting systems.
Ingersoll Rand Engine Starting Systems are designed, built and tested to provide optimum performance, right from the start...and throughout the longer life, that is exactly what they deliver. The key to gaining the full value of your investment is to demand Ingersoll Rand Genuine Parts whenever service or maintenance is required. Ingersoll Rand genuine parts represent a real difference, and several factors underscore their real value:
- Design - Only Ingersoll Rand parts are specifically designed to meet performance requirements of IR starters.
- Materials - Each Ingersoll Rand part is individually tested to ensure optimum performance.
- Support - Ingersoll Rand backs all Ingersoll Rand genuine parts with its own warranty and distributor network.
- The Cost of Quality - Long term savings using Ingersoll Rand Genuine Parts far outweighs the short term savings on alternatives
Ingersoll Rand vane air starters are the most commonly used air starters throughout the world. Their simple, rugged designs are easy to maintain and their durability legendary. The vane motor develops maximum horsepower at a much lower speed of 5,000 to 6,000 rpm, and only requires a small amount of lubrication for maximum life. The decreased speed of the vane motor improves bearing life, and delivers more torque per pound of weight than piston air motors.
The differences between the turbine motor and the vane motor are significant. The turbine motor is lighter in weight, does not need lubrication, and has a tremendous amount of stored energy. It develops its power at extreme rotational speeds as high as 60,000 rpm. Ingersoll Rand turbine motors are speed limited by design and are insensitive to moisture due to the use of the most modern composite materials. The new ST1000 turbine starter uses a solid aluminum motor and is the class leader in performance and durability.
Ingersoll Rand's TS700, TS900, and TS400 air starters are ideal solutions for gas turbine engine starting requirements.
Service work on diesel and gas engines is easier and safer with Ingersoll Rand B006 and T480 Series pneumatic barring motors. These highly reliable, precisely controlled motors enable you to turn engines over slowly and stop them securely for greater peace of mind and productivity. These barring motors are lightweight and portable, which means you can move them from engine to engine, or mount them permanently. Since they are powered by compressed air, these motors are well suited for field applications, hazardous environments, and are perfect solutions for all service applications.
