An electric motor typically draws up to 8 times more current during start up than it takes to operate. If the electric motor is loaded then the starting currents and associated problems increase.
Use of low voltage starting reduces starting torque and may require larger motors than required for normal operation.
The Torque Starter creates a unique and cost effective method of eliminating starting currents and the associated problems. The Torque Starter simply does this by eliminating the use of electricity to start an electric motor.
The Torque Starter is an ingenious electro/mechanical device that incorporates the use of a pneumatic or hydraulically actuated mechanical starter and a motor shaft attached gear to initially rotate the electric motor and its driven component up to a predetermined speed prior to applying power.
The Torque Starter is a patented revolutionary method of starting an electric motor that completely eliminates the excessive draw of electric current when starting.
Each Torque Starter (TS) is supplied in the form of a “TS System Install Kit” and includes all major required electrical devices, controls, wiring and mechanical materials for installation. Our Customers enjoy the full Turn-Key support of our technical support staff, applications engineers and installation technicians to assist the application and installation of each Torque Starter. Or, the customer may choose the option to perform the field installation themselves with our on-site manager assistance or remote technical support from ZimTech and its distributor.
In most all cases, the Torque Starter can be installed in one day, or pre-installed during packaging. Complete field service and parts dispatching is available 24 hours a day and is a click or phone call away.
