New Turbine Starters

Posted on June 18, 2013

Pow-R-Quik, a division of Maradyne, has introduced a new addition to its PRQ series of industrial/marine turbine air and gas starters. The new PRQ200i inertia drive and PRQ200p pre-engaged models round out the PRQ series for diesel engines in the 22 to 200 L range.

The PRQ200 Series turbine comes in both a right- and left-hand rotation to start counter rotating marine propulsion engines. Low and standard pressure models are also available, the company said.

The 200i inertia starter and the 200p pre-engaged starter both have the bearing forward of the pinion and an exhaust adaptor allows for direct replacement using certain competitive starter exhaust plumbing, making the inlet a direct fit in many retrofit applications, Pow-R-Quik said.
