Turbo Internacional Turbocharger Servicing
Turbo Internacional is an independent multi-brand turbocharger service company solely dedicated to the maintenance, repair and sale of exhaust gas turbochargers. We give service to the main turbocharger brands like ABB, MAN, PBS, Mitsubishi, KBB and Napier, both in our workshops and on site at offshore facilities, aboard vessels, on the railways and in power stations.
We have a highly skilled service engineer workforce that is able to carry out the most complex or routine tasks, which is always a guarantee of success and peace of mind for our customers.
We are committed to providing a high-quality service whenever and wherever our customer requires it.
Our warehouse stocks a large inventory of spare parts mainly for ABB and PBS turbochargers for immediate delivery in our commitment to reduce costly engine downtime.
Spare parts for turbochargers
Our stock includes:
- Gas inlet casings
- Gas outlet casings
- Nozzle rings
- Cover rings
- Broached shafts
- Turbine blades
- Compressor wheels
- Sealing bushes
- Air silencers
- TPS service kits
We can deliver spares for MAN, Napier, KBB and Mitsubishi products promptly and we have a limited stock of reconditioned spares.
Complete rotors can be assembled and balanced in a few hours after order and we offer a permanent stock of bearing units both new and reconditioned, gear oil pumps, oil slingers and bearing service kits for ABB (VTR, TPS), PBS (PDH, PTR and NR).
On-site servicing of ship turbochargers
We pride ourselves on having the best-in-class service team available 24 hours a day to carry out maintenance, inspections and emergency repairs.
Once our service is requested, a skilled serviceman will be sent to diagnose and put your turbocharger back into operation. In cases where the extent of supply is previously known, our serviceman will bring the required parts.
We can also perform dynamic balancing on site with our portable balancing system. For occasions where taking the rotor to our shop for full maintenance is not feasible we will bring our portable balancing machine to site to carry out the balancing there and then.
We have a modern, fully equipped workshop that enables us to maintain a very high-quality level of work, inspection and repairs for all brands of turbochargers.
- Blade repair
- Ultraviolet crack detection
- Hardness testing
- Hydrostatic testing
- Wall thickness test of gas casings
- Dynamic balancing
- Micro blasting
- Metal spraying
Our balancing machines are capable of balancing rotors from 100g up to 1,800kg. All rotors going out of our workshop, either as new supply units, reconditioned units, or those assembled inside a complete turbocharger, are balance checked and if necessary corrected according to manufacturer specifications.
Our balancing machines are calibrated and certified on a yearly basis by an independent firm ensuring their precision according to ISO norms.
We carry out hardness test according to OEM specification with certified equipment on all the compressor wheels coming into and leaving our workshop. With this test we can diagnose and prevent failure during operation and also assess on the state of a particular wheel.
Our welding department can perform many types of standard and special welding suitable for each particular component and material.
Ultrasonic wall thickness test
Wall thickness test is carried out with a certified tester to measure the thickness of the gas casings walls in order to find weak points that will lead to cracks and water leaks during operation.
Rotor shaft repair
Rotor shafts can be rebuilt back to OEM specification, depending on the extent of the wear, on the bearing journals, sealing areas and pump spigots.
Bearing assembly and gear oil pump reconditioning
In our special bearing room we carry out the reconditioning of VTR, VTC and PDH bearing assemblies and gear oil pumps.
The bearings are completely dismantled; the components are cleaned and measured. In every case the naked bearings are replaced and the rest of the components, such as damping springs and bearing bushes, are carefully inspected for reuse; in other cases they are replaced.
Once the bearings are reassembled with new naked bearings and inspected/parts replaced, the complete units pass through the test benches where their final tolerances are measured and adjusted if needed.
Finally the bearing units are submerged in a preserving agent, packed and closed in tin cans for optimal storage conditions.
Turbo Internacional guarantees the same lifetime for the reconditioned bearings and pumps as it does for new units.
Air filter/silencers are reconditioned by completely dismantling them, microblasting the supports, body and filter panel, replacing the felt layers and securing tabs, and renewing the filtering elements. This is a cost-effective solution that renders the silencer to an ‘as new’ condition.
All our incoming and outgoing supplies are inspected and checked for conformance to the ISO 9001:2008 certification.
We are proud to announce that since 2008 all our supplies, repairs, sales and maintenance are carried out according to ISO9001 standards under the certification of Bureau Veritas.
