START-HIDRO olao-hydraulic starters for Diesel engines
The START-HIDRO oleo-hydraulic starters are patented.

START-HIDRO is a piece of equipment for the quick and easy starting of Diesel engines without the need of electric batteries or compressors and interchangeable with the electric starters. It is made in a heavy-duty construction for 100% reliability.

Its working principle is based on the energy stored in a dry nitrogen pre-charged oleo-pneumatic accumulator.

It doesn’t produce sparks, so it is explosion safe, and is suitable for engines from 50 HP to 1,000 HP.

A complete system consists of a hand pump, a piston accumulator attached to an oil tank, a valve, a pressure gauge, two connection pipes and the oleo-hydraulic starter motor fitted with a hydraulic cylinder for moving the engaging Bendix pinion forward and back.

START-HIDRO is primarily intended for marine applications, to be installed in small to medium sized ships, like the barge in the photograph above left; but can also suit any kind of Diesel engine application, like the farming tractor in the set of four photographs below (an old model).
