IPU design, manufacture and commission entire air starting systems

IPU Starting specialise in the design and manufacture of both standard and custom made air starting compressor and receiver packages, which incorporate compressors and air receivers sized to provide the correct cranking time required to start the engine.

By storing compressed air at 30 or 40 bar, and then reducing the pressure to 10 bar or less at the starter motor, the size of the air receiver is reduced. This is especially important in marine and containerised gen-set applications where space is always at a premium.
