What's Turbocharger Test Rig
In the prime of time of development for ceramic turbocharger, our turbocharger test rig has formerly been quite popular facility for automobile manufacturers, turbocharger manufacturers, material suppliers and the related components manufacturers to evaluate aerodynamics performance survey, material characteristic and structural reliability, and the test rigs provided were still running on the site but it was being things of the past.
However, the recent trend of automobile industry recalled our turbocharger test rig for the needs for developing more efficient and functional turbocharger incl. motor assist turbocharger and its relative exhaust components in respect to emission regulation of diesel engines for European market and downsizing engine for specific gasoline engines. Our renewal turbocharger test rig has developed to fully respond to the new requirement, which is capable of achieving to full covered range of automobile from compact car to large scale track (or Formula 1 class). The test rig is just essential facility to develop or ensure your turbocharger, which is developing more complex and efficient by improvement of manufacturing technology (ex. casting) or new function (ex. variable nozzle vane).
Do not hesitate to contact us if it applies for shipbuilding turbocharger testing.
