These starters are mainly of two types one is an Automatic starter and another is a Manually operated starter.
Automatic Starter is Contactor type and mostly used in all engineering units nowadays.
In Air Compressor Engineering, accessories are very important to keep the machine in running condition.
Automatic Starter (Contactor type) is mainly used to start Electric Motor so the Air Compressor coupled to that motor can be started.
Let’s go for Troubleshooting and Rectification of Automatic Starter (Contactor type)
AUTOMATIC STARTER FAULT: CONTACTOR FAILS TO CLOSE
AUTOMATIC STARTER FAULT: FUSES BLOWS DURING STARTING
AUTOMATIC STARTER FAULT: INADVERTENT TRIPPING OF STARTERS
AUTOMATIC STARTER FAULT: SEVERE CONTACT BURNING OR WELDING
AUTOMATIC STARTER FAULT: NOISY CONTACTOR
AUTOMATIC STARTER FAULT: COIL BURNING
AUTOMATIC STARTER FAULT: STARTER FAILS TO OPEN
