Dobco Equipment Ltd. is Canada’s key supplier of tools by Ingersoll Rand (IR). While this manufacturer is known for construction tools, it is also a source of engine starting systems, for land and water vehicles. What makes IR air starters stand out is their high reliability, which is necessary in the world’s most demanding sectors and environments. Equipment must keep running at all times, and IR products promise this and more.
Laboratory-tested and field-proven products
With more than 200 models in its portfolio, IR has more installations of air starters in more applications worldwide than any other manufacturer does. The company is a leader in this field, trusted by the biggest names, with a wide range of turbine starters, vane starters, and barring motors. These are laboratory-tested, field-proven products with rugged components that ensure reliability in harsh conditions. Built from a culture of innovation from the latest technology and skilled engineering, each unit offers world-class performance with power, torque, and efficiency.
IR produces various engine starting systems for different applications, like locomotives, marine vehicles, off-highway equipment, oil and gas, power generation, and other transportation. Examples of units available through Dobco:
- Turbine starters. With fully supported, high-speed rotors that extend bearing life by minimizing deflection and ensuring concentric operation. These engine starting systems withstand the toughest working and environmental conditions. Lube-free turbine motors, easy field serviceability, and robust gearing that handles long crank cycles.
- Vane starters. These units have a simple, rugged design with easy maintenance and high durability. The most commonly used air starters in the world, these vane motors develop maximum horsepower at speeds as low as 5,000 revolutions per minute. The ability to thrive at lower speeds expands every motor’s bearing life, minimizes planetary gear reduction, and delivers high torque per pound.
- Gas turbine starters. Three series of air starters with powerful turbine motors of up to 146 horsepower. Sealed oil bath system internally lubricates the planetary gears and motor bearings.
- Barring motors. With reversible vane air motor for exact control and pendant control that allows safer one-person operation.
