Forged from the extreme conditions of racing environments and used in some of the most demanding industrial/military environments on the planet, Turbonetics patented bearing technology has revolutionized turbocharger standards of durability and performance. Turbonetics offers a patented Angular-Contact Ceramic Ball Bearing design.
This Turbonetics exclusive design is made with almost indestructible silicone-nitride ceramic balls. A conventional unit has a capacity of 60-80 lbs. of dynamic thrust load. The patented Turbonetics design can withstand anywhere from 1000 to 2500 lbs. of loading depending on the frame size.
The "angular-contact" feature offers extreme strength because it is used as the loading surface instead of softer, weaker parts in standard units. What does this mean? It means the turbocharger is exceptionally durable in high pressure ratios, is not susceptible to thrust failures common with standard bearing turbos, and will provide fantastic transient response.
Turbonetics' patented High Pressure Ratio/High Efficiency compressor aerodynamics allow for reliability and performance regardless of your boost pressure requirements. Our high pressure ratio turbo designs are being utilized today for unmanned aircraft in extremely demanding applications. In alternative fuel industrial applications this advanced technology allows for greater efficiency and therefore better emissions compliance.
Along with our full engineering staff ready to help you match turbochargers for your specific requirements, Turbonetics utilizes compressor and turbine component balancing as well as multiple high-speed VSR (Vibration Sorting Rig) Core Balancing Machines. "Core balancing" ensures a turbocharger rotor assembly is balanced in its final assembled condition, at close to normal operational speeds. This process minimizes bearing loads and vibration, producing a quiet and reliable turbocharger with a long service life. Turbonetics can address your specific application needs with a wide variety of standard product or ground up custom designs. Please call our sales staff to discuss how we can help you today.
