TMY6QD Diesel Engine Pneumatic Starter (Vane Type) Advantages


  • The vane motor develops maximum horsepower at a much lower speed of 1,740 to 2,400 rpm, and only requires a small amount of lubrication for less maintenance.
  • High Power-To-Weight ratio delivers enough starting torque with comparably low air volume and keeps continuous stable output. (Increasing air supply are required for higher power and more works to do)
  • Rotating direction can be installed either clockwise or anti-clockwise, up to your requirements.


  • Pneumatic drive, Non-aluminium design, and no heat buildup reduces the risk of explosion or sparks
    (ATEX Certified level Ex II 2GD c T5 IIB T100°C)
  • Overhung pre-engaged design prevents any risk of sparks and offers more stable & reliable performance.
  • Robust cast-iron construction makes it highly resistant to corrosion and maintains long lifetime.
