Austart is a safe starting system for both general and hazardous environments for diesel and gas powered engines. Equipment utilised in mining, marine, construction and transport industries conform to stringent safety standards the world over.

Typical applications include: generator sets, compressors, fire pumps, forktrucks, locomotives, mining equipment and on highway transport vehicles. Almost any engine powered product both stationary and mobile can benefit from a quick and efficient Austart Starting System.

Austart Air Starting Systems can take many shapes and forms depending upon various factors like the units physical location, working environment, application and the safety standards that are required to be met.

Options are available for full intrinsically safe control systems to meet most International Safety Standards.

Components we offer include:

Lubricator Relay Valves Y Strainers Solenoid Valves
One Way Check Valves Mufflers Lubricators
Control Valves Gauges Relay Valves
Gauges Air Receivers

*All components tested for correct operation prior to despatch.

Austart Engine Starting Systems utilise compressed air or gas stored in a pressure vessel and released through control valves to a pneumatically driven motor. This provides a driving force to firstly engage the starter drive pinion with the flywheel ring gear and secondly to crank the engine. Systems can be tailored to suit specific requirements taking into account duty cycles, environment and quality of air or gas supply.
Due to the extensive product range we offer with so many numerous options available, it is considered more time effective for you to contact us with full details of your application so we can provide the best product options. If your application is unique we may even offer to produce a ‘Special Product’ to fulfill your requirements.
Austart equipment is constructed in aluminium housings to meet the requirements of the transport and construction industries with lightweight products of high performance. Alternatively component housings are produced in cast iron providing more robust heavy duty equipment to meet the demands of the mining and petroleum applications whilst meeting the strict industry safety codes. Along with the best materials available, specialised metal treatments and surface finishes are employed to enhance product durability in the harshest environments whilst maintaining serviceability.
