D-Ratio Ingersoll Rand ST1000 Air Starter on an EMD 16-645 Engine
April 22nd, 2016
Video description: Cardinal Valley provided the customer with a D-Ratio Ingersoll Rand ST1000 air starter for a EMD 16-645 engine. Usually this starter would be oversized for this engine, but this application is based on customer preference due to the customer having a legacy starter mount that would be particularly troublesome and expensive to replace. The air starter struggles a little at the beginning of the start-cycle due to the fact that the volume in the air tanks had already been depleted in tests just prior to this video being taken. Note the Ingersoll Rand SRV-150 Relay Valve installed just below the air starter.
