LubriGUARD

The major causes of premature Turbocharger failure

At engine shutdown, engine oil flow to the turbocharger stops.  The turbocharger, however, is still spinning, the bearing oil film could overheat due to the residual high temperature of the turbocharger casing, resulting in lubrication breakdown and the formation of carbon, blocking oil passages restricting lubricating oil flow for future operations.

 

LubriGUARD can help!

  • LubriGUARD extends the time that oil flows through the turbocharger after  engine shutdown.  A reservoir entraps engine oil during normal engine operation and on shutdown, diverts this stored oil through the turbocharger.  This provides lubrication to the turbocharger bearings during the shutdown period, lubricating and cooling these critical parts.

 

  • System is designed to give oil supply priority to the turbocharger on engine start up.

 

  • Oil reservoir contains a piston that separates the two chambers. The upper chamber is pre-charged with air.
  • This accumulator type system ensures a total discharge of all stored oil into the turbocharger on every shutdown cycle.

 

  • Additional reservoirs can be added in parallel to increase stored volume of oil on large engines.

 

  • All reservoirs conform to SANS347

 

  • Easy to install, bolt on kits with fitting instructions for all popular engines are generally available.
