Flow Bench for testing and calibrating turbochargers with variable turbine geometry rounds off product portfolio on the turbocharger aftermarket
Darmstadt, December 4, 2019 – Schenck RoTec, a global market leader in the field of balancing and diagnostics technology, offers a new solution for maintaining turbochargers – the VISCOM Flow Bench. It enables precision calibration of overhauled VNT/VTG turbochargers simply and easily in just a few minutes. Therefore, maintenance technicians can reliably meet the ever more stringent manufacturer specifications.
Often, errors, such as increased or insufficient load pressure occur in overhauled turbochargers when these are used without calibration of the variable turbine geometry. Often, the reason for this is that the permissible tolerances have been exceeded, which leads to a motor malfunction – and repairs are cost- and time intensive.
Fast and simple results
"For the collaboration between Schenck RoTec and VISCOM, we are relying on a solution with the Flow Bench that enables maintenance technicians to easily test their turbochargers and is thus a perfect addition to our own product range“, explains Ercan Düzgün, product manager at Schenck RoTec. In the first step, the turbocharger is clamped on the machine with the correct adapter. Thanks to the magnetic adapters, this can be done quickly and without a tool. Next, the turbocharger is secured from unwanted turning on the compressor wheel side and is connected to the pneumatic or electric charge-pressure actuator. After the turbocharger model is entered on the touchscreen monitor, the measurement run begins. A few seconds later, the measurement is complete and the operator sees whether the charger is within the manufacturer tolerance.
Basic, Comfort and Premium – three versions to meet any requirement
The versions of the VISCOM Flow Bench offer different equipment packages, which are geared to the requirements of users. All three versions include a touch display, VISCOM measuring software, as well as the TM-A adapter system for approx. 95% of all common turbochargers and the required flow measuring system in the comprehensive basic configuration.
All advantages at a glance:
- Reduced space requirement and simple commissioning of the Flow Bench
- Simple and precise turbocharger installation with the TM-A adapter system®
- Very short setup and measurement time
- Calibration of the turbocharger during the measurement run
- Comprehensive scope of delivery with an adapter and connection set for 95 % of common turbocharger types
- Over 1,000 turbocharger references on board
- Regular software updates to new turbocharger types
- Ability to create your own references
