Explosion Proof Starting System for the Shale Gas & Methane Fields

(click on thumbnail to enlarge)

A customer operating shale gas, and coal methane fields in Alberta, Canada needed a cleaner solution to the natural gas powered starter motors that had been using on their compressors. Due to the hazardous nature of gases mined, the new starters had to be explosion proof and intrinsically safe. We were able to support them with our 12 VDC and 24 VDC explosion proof starter motors. Available with min/max horse power ratings of 4 to 35 horse power respectively, and breakaway torque of 65 to 270 ft.-lbs. this product gave then the solution they needed.
