Simple, Rugged Design Results in Longer Lasting Air Starter
TurboTwister is a study in rugged simplicity. Fewer moving parts. TDI engineered the starter version to include a new solenoid design which is more tolerant to contamination and vibration which are often present in typical applications. The result is TDI’s most rugged, reliable air starter. It will be less susceptible to failure in harsh environments, thereby lasting longer, which will actually reduce the cost of ownership.

TurboTwister is available in three basic configurations: 1) A “starter-only” for retrofitting into existing systems where manual controls and bolt on equipment is already in place. 2) It’s also available as a Plug & Play Starter with Integrated Solenoid and Relay Valve. 3) A full gas compliance version can be purchased featuring 3” NPT Exhaust threading, which allows for a directional “ported” exhaust and fitment of optional silencers, spark arrestors, air diverters, or for piping away hazardous starter exhaust gasses.
