GT starting

SSS Clutches are suitable for use with electric & hydraulic motors, turbines, diesel engines etc.

Clutches can be installed in gearboxes, directly to turbines or externally mounted in their own casings.

The Clutch allows the Turbine to be accelerated from rest to ‘self-sustaining speed’ following which the clutch disengages the drive so that the starter motor can be stopped.

‘On-the-fly’ restarting is also possible after a failed start without the need for the the turbine to be brought to rest.

SSS specialises in retrofits in place of unreliable and inflexible starter systems.
