Austart Air 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 liter to 400 liter 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.

Austart Vane Starters
are available in Z and U-shaped configurations for those demanding applications where space is a significant concern. Lubricated and Lubeless Vane starters are available in many flanges and pinion options to suit most applications. All products are made from durable materials with high-quality surface finishes and coatings to withstand the harshest.
