PRQ-LS Series Brochure

The Pow-R-Quik name has always been synonymous with excellence in air starting systems. From new and remanufactured starters to repair kits, original parts and components, The Pow-R-Quik brand is unequaled in the industry in terms of performance, reliability and quality. The Pow-R-Quik line of air and gas starters offers features and benefits that are unique to the industry. All PRQ Vane starters are lubeless, their vanes are made of a high tech material that reduces wear and allows operation with or without lubrication.**

  • All PRQ LS Series are lubeless.
  • The PRQ LS-8 Series has over 60 models* available to fit both the domestic and import small engine markets.
  • All PRQ LS-23/24 are available with inertia or pre-engaged drives.
  • High-tech vane material.Reduces wear, allows operation without lubrication.
  • Non-corrosive rotor sleeves.
    Special coating on aluminum rotor sleeves on LS-8 Models.
    Stainless steel sleeves used on LS-16, LS-23/24, and LS-60/61.
  • Rugged Construction.
    Rotor and shaft design provide higher torque potential and longer life than common two pieces designs.
  • Mounting Flexibility.

All housings can be independently positioned with respect to each other.
*Note: PRQ LS-8 starters are developed as new engines are released to the market.
**Note: Lubrication is optional on LS Series for Diesel Engines. For lower pressure starting or cold weather starting it is recommended that you use lubrication. Lubrication is required on all starters for natural gas engines and all engines with long crank cycles.

SM Series

Startmaster Air Starters are now identified as the PRQ SM Series. This well established product line offers unique feature that complement the PRQ LS series.

The PRQ SM-250 and SM-251 are available in pre-engaged and pre-engaged overhung models. They fit both Domestic and European engines and incorporate a built in relay valve which simplifies installations. The positive blade displacement feature eliminates freeze ups by mechanically positioning the rotor blades into the air-stream.

The PRQ SM-500 Series develops 75 hp and 230 ft. lbs. of torque that will crank diesel engines up to 10,000 cu. in. The twin air motor design provides high efficiency, and the simplicity of design makes for easy servicing.

  • All SM Series have positive blade displacement feature built into both motor end plates that forces the rotor blades in their proper positions to ensure reliable starting.
  • All SM Series are available for natural gas and includes gas-tight shaft seals.
  • All SM Series are lubeless**
  • PRQ SM-250 & SM-251Built in relay valve and automatic lubricator Integral muffler available.
  • Pre-engaged drive.
  • PRQ SM-251
    Pre-engaged, overhung drive.

  • Designed for either single or multiple starter use.
  • Applications include both single and dual shaft stationary gas turbine engines.
  • Rated for starter cutout speeds of 4200 RPM and 8400 RPM. Special gears may be ordered for most other starting requirements.
  • Specified for stationary gas turbine engines with a wide range of torque and RPM starting requirements.
  • Designed to tolerate field conditions that would imbalance higher RPM, turbine type air starters.
  • Operated with interchangeable gears controlling starter cutout speed. Eliminates oil filled, planetary gearbox required with high-speed starters.
  • Simplified operations — Maintenance-free, pre-engagement is standard. Separated drive inserts are interchangeable and may be ordered for most applications.
  • Designed for high RPM, long-duty cycles and extended life with proprietary high performance vanes.
  • Maximum breakaway torque — highly efficient, vane type air motor uses less air flow and provided more breakaway torque than turbine type starters.
  • Designed for maximum mounting flexibility. Housings may be independently positions with respect to each other. Exhaust may be rotated to any one of 12 positions unlike the conventional, single direction starters.
  • Adapted to inlet and exhaust, SAE split flanges are standard. 1 1⁄2” NPT or SAE “O” Ring Boss threaded connections may be ordered.
  • Varied engine mounts — MS 3327-8S and AND 20002 Type XII S-mounting provisions are standard. Special pads may be ordered.
