Poor quality fuel can cause immense damage to a turbocharger. Incompletely combusted particles from the diesel engine can chip pieces from the blade and often bend them. The ‘blasting’ eect of these dirt particles causes erosion while the high sulphur or water content of the fuel causes corrosion. Foreign objects passing
through the nozzle ring also cause damage (pieces of broken valve, piston ring etc.).
Damaged rotor blades can cause imbalance. When the imbalance exceeds the permissible tolerance, vibrations which wear the bearing cause damage to the entire turbocharger. Extensive repairs and downtime are then unavoidable. The result is an unstable blade with an unbalanced rotor. After reconditioning the shaft and the turbine blades, the rotor will be balanced on our state of the art Schenck test bench. Once the rotor is placed on the balancing bench, every step is carefully handled according to the instruction book values. After analysing the visual computerized system, the imbalances on the rotor are corrected by grinding down on the correction planes. Our experienced team of technicians adds clear and professional balancing reports to the client’s service report. When requested, the dynamic balancing can be executed together with a surveyor of Lloyd’s Register, followed by a certificate.
SHAFT AND REPAIR
Damage to the shaft end is a direct consequence of bearing damage. Shafts are still frequently repaired using the ‘cold’ technique in which a new layer of metal is applied at a temperature below 300°C. The disadvantage of this method is that machined surfaces such as keyways and threads cannot be treated. The applied layer would be detached at the slightest impact during balancing.
