What is VTR Turbo?
VTR is a series of turbochargers that was designed for two-stroke low-speed and four-stroke medium-speed, heavy-duty diesel and gas engines. Our spare parts meet all the expectations regarding safety. Those Turbochargers can achieve ratings from 700kW to value around 18,500 KW per turbocharger.
What does a turbocharger do?
A turbocharger is a system that helps an engine produce more power and torque through forced induction. Essentially, a turbo sucks in air, chills it, and then force-feeds the engine more air than what it would get through its standard intake.
Can you daily drive a turbo car?
Yes, it is totally fine to daily drive a turbo car. In fact, turbocharging – at least from the perspective of many manufacturers – is more about making daily driving easier for the driver by making cars more powerful, more fuel efficient and easier to drive. This car comes – from factory – with a turbocharged engine.
How often should you clean your turbo?
For severe problems and faster cleanup, fill the fuel filter and add the remainder of contents to 100L of diesel fuel. Use at least once a month to keep the turbocharger in optimal condition. Don’t worry about over-treating. This is a case where more is better.
Are aftermarket cold air intakes worth it?
To answer the question of whether a cold air intake system is ultimately worth it, the answer is yes. Even if you don’t notice the benefits, they are still present and are actively helping your car to run more efficiently.
How much horsepower does a VTR Turbo have?
The VTR turbocharger is designed for two-stroke, low-speed and four-stroke, medium-speed heavy-duty diesel engines (about 700 kW to 18,500 kW per turbocharger).
What was the efficiency of the BBC vtr.0?
The introduction of the VTR..0 series after World War II was a significant milestone in the BBC turbocharger story. With a compressor efficiency of 75% for a pressure ratio of 2, it was only the start of what was to come, but the BBC VTR..0 turbocharger marked the beginning of a new era.
When did Brown Boveri start turbocharging their engines?
Brown Boveri had already signalled its interest in two-stroke turbocharging in 1925 with its purchase of the “Curtis” patent. This covered the socalled series arrangement, in which the – turbocharger feeds air into the mechanical scavenging air blower of the two-stroke engine, thus guaranteeing start and operation at low load.
What was the first turbocharger in the world?
World’s first turbocharger for a large diesel engine. Delivered in 1924, it had external plain bearings and a twostage compressor – for a pressure ratio of 1.35. Innovative ideas prevail when their time comes, the right partners are involved and conditions are right.
