A turbocharger is a machine with a rotor. It consists of a turbine and a compressor mounted on a single shaft. It facilitates charging a combustion engine or a steam wheel, reducing fuel consumption and the emission of pollutants. The turbine is powered by the exhaust gases from the engine. The purpose of the compressor is to compress the air which powers the engine. Various factors influence the turbine operation and exploitation, for example bad quality of fuel. It has to be remembered that driving the car at high speed for a long time may also contribute to damage to the turbocharger. It is recommended to cool down the turbine before turning off the engine after each long-distance drive. However, when the turbine or the compressor is damaged or they need to be replaced due to high mileage, their repair, total reconditioning of replacement has to be considered.

The most frequent causes of damage to turbochargers
A large percentage of damages to turbochargers results from external factors. It is very rare that overexploitation of a turbocharger is caused by a manufacturing defect. Therefore, it is very important to identify the cause of the fault before installing a new turbocharger or reconditioning the old one.
One of the possible causes of damage to the turbocharger may be the lack of precision during installation. Even smallest particles of dirt such as sand, rust or other contaminants have a great influence on the proper work of the turbocharger.
Bad quality oil and poor filters
Remember that trouble-free operation of turbochargers requires pollution-free oil. If you choose low-quality oil, you can be sure that after some time the turbocharger will require reconditioning or replacement. Contaminants present in cheap oils have a negative influence on moving parts of the turbochargers, cause bearing wear, damage the rotor and the casing.
One of the most frequent causes of damage to the bearings and the shaft is the lack of appropriate lubrication or its limitation due to obstructed oil pipes or incorrectly installed seals.
