The GTS Repair process

To begin with Turbochargers are stripped down, all parts are cleaned, inspected and measured to see if they meet manufacturers guidelines. Any damaged parts are examined to determine if a repair is viable, a report on the turbocharger condition and parts condition is made with our recommendations. We have over 50 years of experience as a team, allowing expert advice to decide the best solution for your turbocharger.

Shaft Repairs

One of the most common issues we see is broken turbocharger shafts, often due to oil contamination that leads to oil starvation. Without enough lubrication of oil, the turbocharger shaft will not operate properly and lead to failure quickly. An early sign to look out for oil starvation is heat discoloration. To help prevent oil contamination initially, ensure regular servicing and oiling with the correct grade. Whatever the damage whether it be bearing journal damage, seal ring groove damage or surface finish wear we have the capabilities to refurbish your shaft back to the original standard.

Compressor Wheels

Compressor wheels spin incredibly quick, most peak between 20,000 TO 50,000 RPM, this mostly depends on the size of the turbocharger and weight of the parts. Some of the most common issues with compressor wheels are vane damage, labyrinth damage or general impact damage, luckily all these issues can often be salvaged by applying the correct techniques. To prevent general impact damage, ensure the air filter is efficiently collecting any dirt to stop that passing through to the compressor.

We have experience of compressor wheel repairs on all turbocharger makes and can restore your component back to its original size in most cases.

Turbine Salvage

Blade repairs as well as “one piece” turbine wheel repairs can now be undertaken with the specialist technology we have available. We can rebuild these components back to their original sizes offering financial benefits over new components.
