Did you know?

ABB’s nozzle ring wear protection will protect your nozzle ring from extraordinary wear and tear caused by abrasion from particles formed by heavy fuel oil combustion.
Mike Fischer explains:

What’s the potential problem?

  • Turbochargers operating on engines that use heavy fuel oil can be exposed to nozzle ring erosion.
  • This extraordinary wearing is caused by the impact of particles, formed during combustion, that are carried into the turbocharger by the exhaust gas.
  • Another consideration is that chemicals and additives in the fuel can cause corrosion.

So what can we do to make sure this does not happen?

  • ABB has developed a special wear protection for the nozzle ring to combat this issue and substantially improve durability.
  • The wear protection is available for several different types and sizes of ABB turbochargers.
  • Field experience has shown that durability can be improved significantly with a wear-protected nozzle ring.
