Arrow engines are designed for continuous duty 24 hours a day, day after day. Dependable performance when you need it. Arrow's heavy duty design features a heavy flywheel, a governor speed control, and a pressurized full flow lubrication system to assure continuous operation.
Oil field Tough
Over 75,000 Arrow Engines are powering pumping jacks in oil fields from the frozen tundras of Canada to the mountains of South America, from the deserts of the Middle East to the jungles of Indonesia. Many of the original engines built in the 1940s are still running today. Tough means they work harder, longer.
Arrow Engines run on a variety of low BTU gases; natural gas, wellhead gas, methane, butane or propane. Whether in remote jungles or in civilization, locally available gas fuel frequently costs much less than bringing in liquid fuel or electric power. The single cylinder Arrow engines can also be equipped with a fuel lift pump and will operate on gasoline.
Studies performed in the U.S. have shown that operating costs for Arrow engines can be as low as half when compared to equivalent HP electric motors. Since every area is different, you owe it to yourself to compare the costs in your area.
Arrow engines are designed for easy, quick field maintenance. The oil level can be checked and adjusted while the engine is running. Easy access enables replacing piston rings and wet cylinder sleeves in the field. Arrow parts are also interchangeable from the first model made.
Starfire Solid State Ignition Systems are standard for single cylinder engines and optional on twin cylinder engines. Also available as options are high-tension or solid-state magnetos, or Altronic ignition systems.
