The patented Hydrotor® starting system has been proven through many years of reliable service under environmental extremes worldwide. Its use is particularly suited to low temperature operation where, given the correct choice of oil/hydraulic fluid, the energy potential for engine starting is relatively constant compared with battery energized starting. In hazardous environments, the explosion or fire risk is considerably lower than that pertaining with electrical starting, since the compressible (energy) medium is nitrogen, an inert gas.
