Gali Air Starter S-38 50kW

Type S-38 air starters are generally used for starting Diesel engines of an approximate range of ratings of 900 to 3800 kW (1223-5.163 HP), although the suitability depends on the engine capacity, number of cylinders and the ratio of the pinion to the flywheel ring gear.

The power and pressure required to start such an engine depends on its technical characteristics.  Some of these include the bore and stroke of the pistons, the crown’s number of teeth, compression ratio, resistance torque of the engine, as well as the working temperature conditions and the specific characteristics of each installation.

Its “Z” shape structure allows for the installation of this starter in engines with complex and reduced side spaces.

All of the traditional advantages offered by Gali, with its air rotors and lubrication free starters are maintained in this model, such as: pre-engagement system, high acceleration speed allowing a quick start, flexibility of independent pinion and flange, diverse starter position, light weight etc.

Type S-38 air starters are available in clockwise and counter clockwise rotation configurations, making it ideal to use on generators, compressors, marine diesels, etc.
