What Our Marine Turbo Repair Is About
When it comes to repairing a marine turbo engine, there are differences in the amount of work that needs to be done. So, the standard price for a rebuild starts at $400.00. However, this depends on what make of turbo you have and what work you need. Every standard rebuild includes all bearings, seals, thrust components, O-rings & balancing as well as a thorough cleaning, bead blasting and painting.

How To Check Your Turbocharger
The turbocharger is an integral part of any ship, boat, or marine engine. It reuses the exhaust gases in order to increase the overall efficiency of the engine. Every turbo consists of two parts: blower and turbine sides. Both aspects require equal attention while carrying out routine maintenance procedures. Below are some maintenance aspects that every marine turbo engine in order to avoid costly repair work.
Keep a Close Catch on All Turbo Charger Parameters
This may be obvious to many, but so important we need to say it. While monitoring the turbocharger, check these following points:
- Speed of the turbocharger
- Exhaust gas inlet and outlet temperatures
- Cooling water inlet and outlet temperatures
- Turbocharger lube oil pressure and temperature
- Differential air pressure in manometer at the compressor side
Monitor Turbocharger Sound
Listening to the sound is one of the best ways of identifying any machinery problem, so the same goes with your marine turbo. If you hear any sort of abnormal scratching sound that may indicate problems in the rotating parts of the turbocharger. You may also hear a howling sound. This possibly indicates a chocked inlet or air passage, which may lead to surging of turbocharger.
Check The Vibration
Turbochargers are high-speed rotating machines. Some turbos actually achieve higher speeds than any other machinery onboard a ship or boat. They are that powerful. So, they have a natural vibration frequency. Engine bracing is done near the turbocharger to transfer such vibrations to the ship’s structure. If the vibration increases abnormally, stop the engine as it may be due to worn out bearings, abnormal “K”value or loose foundation bolts. In any case, this is a huge sign you may need to repair your marine turbo.
