How long is the service life of a diesel generator turbocharger?

July 01, 2022
Diesel generator turbocharger is a kind of air supercharger that increases the boost by compressing air, its role is as follows.
1, improve the power of the diesel generator set. In the case of diesel generator set displacement is unchanged can be increased by increasing the intake density, so that the diesel engine can be more fuel injection, thereby increasing the power of the unit, the power and torque of the diesel generator set to increase by 20% to 30% after the addition of supercharger. Conversely, in the same power output requirements can reduce the bore of the unit, reducing the volume and weight of the diesel engine.
2, improve the emissions of the unit. Turbocharger engine by improving the combustion efficiency of the engine, reduce the emission of harmful components such as particulate matter and nitrogen oxides in the exhaust gas of the unit. It is an indispensable configuration for diesel engines to reach Euro II emission standards or above.
3、Provide the function of plateau compensation. Part of the high altitude areas, the higher the altitude, the thinner the air, with turbocharger diesel generator sets can overcome the problem of power decline in the unit due to thin air on the plateau.
4, improve fuel economy and reduce fuel consumption. With turbocharger diesel generator sets with better combustion performance, you can save fuel 3%-5%.
Turbocharger role is so important, many users may have questions about how long its service life is? In fact, theoretically speaking, the turbocharger and diesel engine life is the same, now the turbocharger technology is very mature, under normal circumstances, the chances of damage to the turbocharger is very small is generally some accessories may be bad, such as the turbocharger bypass solenoid valve. In fact, the life of the supercharger and the life of the diesel engine, are related to maintenance, to use the supercharger for a long time, first of all, the oil should be qualified, the diesel engine air filter is dirty to replace in a timely manner, otherwise the air with sediment and other impurities inhaled turbocharger, and then into the throttle and other places, will greatly affect the turbocharger and the work stability of the unit.
