TDI Air Starter Safety Alert08/21/2015 Demand TDI Genuine Parts

TDI Turbo Twin GCS is concerned about safety. We are sharing this safety alert and information to help you avoid a potentially harmful incident regarding NON-GENUINE parts used in TDI Air Starter repairs, rebuilds, and units which are claimed to be "REMANS" which are actually not Factory Remanufactured units on engines.

At a large oil & gas operation a turbine air starter failed to disengage from the engine during a normal start of a Caterpillar 3516 Engine. The starter was back-driven to a high-speed due to a NON-GENUINE inertia drive which had been installed as a replacement part. This resulted in a burst turbine wheel. The customer originally "thought the unit to be" a TDI remanufactured unit, however, upon inspection, it was a unit rebuilt with NON-GENUINE parts. The containment housing was one of the NON-GENUINE parts and as a result, did not contain the metal fragments of turbine the rotor as it is designed to do. The resulting burst fragmented the NON GENUINE containment housing of the turbine air starter. Parts were ultimately expelled circumferentially and actually penetrated through the starter's housing and exited with enough force to penetrate through the engine inspection cover.
