Extensive investment in the latest technology for turbo testing ensures that all Carwood Turbochargers meet the OE manufacturer specifications. A large proportion of Carwood turbochargers are fitted with a complete new central housing rotating assembly (CHRA), this ensures complete control of quality and optimum rotational balance characteristics. VNT turbochargers are pressure flowed on specialised test benches that ensure correct performance and calibration of the turbocharger and associated actuator. All units are tested before release and normally supplied with fitting kits including gaskets, studs and priming syringe.
Vane Test Rig
- Essential for remanufacturing variable vane turbochargers.
- The VTR is designed to set the minimum vane opening of variable vane turbos to the original specifications.
- This gives Carwood Turbochargers 100% confidence that the turbo will not cause any problems when fitted to the engine. I.e. ECU fault codes, limp mode etc.
Vibration Sort Rig 430
Designed to eliminate excessive noise levels associated with modern high speed turbochargers. The VSR Enables Carwood Turbochargers to trim balance CHRA (centre housing rotating assembly) under similar conditions to those of a modern engine, the VSR can identify any imperfections in the build or the precision parts.
We consider the VSR trim balance to be a critical and essential process in our remanufacturing programme, a process that gives us 100% confidence that the turbo will not fail prematurely and will provide long service on a correctly maintained engine.
