Ether offers the best and most economical method of getting your engine started on the road when the temperatures say no! Air intake grid heaters and glow plugs can help; however, they are a powerful drain on your electrical system and have limited ability when the outside temperatures approach zero. Ether offers the most effective starting solution over the broadest temperature range when it comes to starting your diesel engine. If you want to be sure your diesel engine will start in temperatures ranging from +50F to -50F, you need a Quick Start Ether Injection System.
Extensive testing has determined that maximum ether flow rates should not exceed .25cc per 100CID per 1sec (Military Standard Mil-E-52649B). That would mean if you have a 500CID engine, and a typical start cycle is 3 seconds, you would need 3.75cc’s of ether. If you back off of the maximum and use 20% less from the maximum flow rate you will get for a 500CID diesel engine 3cc’s in a 3 second start cycle. This is a very small amount of ether considering that a standard sewing thimble holds 1 cc of ether.
The function of the atomizer is to convert the pressurized ether liquid into very small (atomized) particles of ether vapor. Quick Start offers a wide selection of atomizers in response to today’s diesel engine configurations and requirements.
