KTI Hydraulic starters
Hydraulic Starters produce higher torque and speed resulting in faster, more efficient engine starting. With the addition of a Beryllium Copper pinion, the hydraulic starter meets the requirements of Class 1, Div. 1 environments.
KTI & TDI Hydraulic Starting Equipment
Unlike alternative starting methods, hydraulic starting systems are nearly unaffected by extreme temperatures. With the use of the hand pump, hydraulic starting systems are capable of overcoming a "black start" condition proving to be critical during emergency situations. Due to constant lubrication of the moving parts, hydraulic starting systems often survive the life of the engine, which results in less "lifetime cost" when compared to other starting methods.
Gas turbine starters
Like all start-ups of TDI is the 56H hydraulic starter also deploy other applications. In some cases, the use of air starters are not feasible and hydraulic starters are preferred, for example due to lack of installation space or certain specific rules. The hydraulic turbine starters of TDI can be used on various other stationary gas turbines including the GE LM2500 series, Pratt & Whitney FT4, Dresser Rand 990 and more. The robust construction, unique internal power distribution and linkage and well conducted nasal structure make the hydraulic gas turbine starter of TDI to an excellent and inexpensive alternative for various other gas turbines starters.
