There are just 6 weeks until the opening of OGA 2015 and IPU will be there to showcase our unique range of ATEX approved hydraulic and air start motors. These ultra-safe products are critical for hazardous environments such as offshore platforms and underground mines.

Our pre-engaged hydraulic and air starters are unique. They use a cast iron construction to eliminate aluminium content. ATEX recommends against using aluminium as it is the primary fuel for a thermite reaction. They also fully engage with an engine’s ring-gear before rotating and cranking the engine, eliminating the risk of sparks caused by traditional inertia starting.

During the 3 day exhibition in Kuala Lumpur we’ll also be exhibiting our range of:

Hydraulic Starters – IPU hydraulic starters and starting systems offer guaranteed reliability, no matter how challenging or unpredictable the environment. They are suitable for engines up to 80 litres and are available with ATEX approval for use on Oil & Gas platforms. Hydraulic starters combine quick acceleration with high torque output.

Air Starters – IPU turbine air start motors are a ‘fit and forget’ starting solution for diesel engines up to 150 litres. Available in either ATEX approved pre-engaged or inertia designs, they can be connected to your existing air supply to save space and cost.

Spring Starters – A reliable, cost effective way of providing manual starting for diesel engines up to 12 litres. They eliminate pollution risk, are simple to install and are ideally suited to harsh environments such as offshore and marine applications.

OGA 2015 is set to attract over 23,000 trade visitors from over 50 different countries to see the latest technology, equipment and machinery in the fields of Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Engineering.

IPU will be welcoming guests with a well-earned refreshment in the UK Pavilion. So if you haven’t already registered for your tickets to OGA 2015 click here to book your tickets today.

We look forward to seeing you in Kuala Lumpur on stand 5805!
