Austart Turbine Starters


Austart Turbine Air Starters for diesel and gas-powered engines are the latest range of Air Starters designed for general industrial and hazardous environments. Austart Turbine starters contain no rubbing parts eliminating the need for lubrication and extending the duration between servicing. They are designed to withstand harsh environments such as underground coal mines and Oil & Gas installations. Austart Air Starters conform to the most stringent safety standards, including ATEX certification.

Many options suit engines from 1 litre to 400 litre displacement. These include pre-engaged or inertia style drive systems, enclosed nose cones or overhung pinion arrangements, and Steel or Beryllium Copper Bronze (BCB) pinion options.

Whether you require starters with flange and pinions to suit SAE standards or a unique build, we can supply a starter to suit your requirements.

Our driving mechanism is a specially designed 3-stage high-speed turbine wheel with aerodynamic braking. The rotating energy is transferred through a series of reduction gears providing the necessary torque and speed to accommodate the particular engine’s specifications.

Austart single turbine starters are as powerful as the competitors’ twin turbine models – with the benefits of requiring less air pressure, having fewer moving parts, being more compact and less expensive when servicing and reconditioning.

Austart turbine starters feature full 360-degree indexation of the inlet port, another industry first, allowing fitment to a more extensive array of engines – and easier installation.

Additional benefits of the Austart turbine air starter include: fewer moving parts, a non-contact turbine wheel, frictionless movements, self-governing speed control, optimised planetary gearing, accurate lube-free operation, ATEX-certified models, and extended service intervals.

The Austart turbine range is the most technically-advanced starter available today.
