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.
Available in 3 Configurations
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.
Versatile for Special Applications
TurboTwister T6/T7 starters offer superior flexibility and simple modularity, making industry and regulatory compliances a snap. Where ATEX, USCG C1D2 CSA, CE, and other requirements apply, TDI delivers. The T6 is for air use and can be purchased as an integrated smart starter, or basic starter only. The T7 version is for natural gas or hazardous service, provide configurations from “basic” to “fully compliant.” With threaded NPT outlet and flanged inlet & exhaust connections, installation will be both easy and compliant. TurboTwister modularity gives you exactly what you need -- without paying for what you don’t need.
