Fluid cleanliness not only improves the life of a system, but it also increases reliability. KTI filters provide a couple of options to help fight contamination without adding significant fluid restriction. Both equipped with 40 micron ratings, the in line high pressure filter and low pressure suction t-filter provide the system with the necessary filtration for dependable starting.



KTI offers several options when it comes to control valves. For those who are looking to actuate the hydraulic starting system manually, the two main options include foot pedal actuated and Bowden wire actuated valves. For operators interested in controlling starting system actuation via HMI (panel interface), KTI offers several options of solenoid operated valves that meet industry requirements including explosion proof.

The soft engage valve is a pilot operated valve mounted between the control valve and hydraulic starter within the starting system. As the system fluid passes through the control valve, a small amount of oil is delivered to the starter allowing the smooth engagement of the pinion gear and the flywheel ring gear. Once the gears mesh, the valve opens completely and delivers full system fluid. The result is a smooth, powerful engine start.



The Kocsis Technologies, Inc. hand pump is a manual pump capable of regenerating system pressure for a starting attempt. Equipped with a 3 foot lever, the manual pump operates on “human” power and can recharge an hydraulic system in a black start condition. The Kocsis Technologies, Inc. hydraulic starting system is the only one capable of recharging manually, making it the most favorable option when it comes to emergency starting applications.

Offered in numerous variations, the Kocsis Technologies, Inc. recharging pump is driven by some form of prime mover (engine PTO or electric motor) to recharge the hydraulic starting system for starting attempts. Featuring a built-in unloading valve, the recharging pump unloads when system pressure has been reached. While in this state, the pump is fully lubricated and can run for hours without issue.
