Wärtsilä Turbocharger safety package

Wärtsilä Turbocharger safety package ensures the reliable operations of turbochargers and reduces potential Turbocharger failure related engine damage risk by monitoring turbocharger vibration levels and looking for the presence of metal particles in turbocharger lubrication oil. Data derived from these systems can be used to plan maintenance, prevent failures and consequently prevent installation down time.

    Technical info

    The Wärtsilä Turbocharger safety package consists of a Turbocharger vibrations monitoring system and a metal particle detector. The vibrations monitoring system is used to monitor the turbocharger operation in terms of vibrations levels and consequently provides valuable data that can be used to prevent failures and provide indications regarding the need for scheduled and unscheduled maintenance.

    The metal particle detector is installed in the turbocharger lube oil return line. The scope is to analyse the lube oil for traces of mechanical contamination and a possible metallic particles presence build up.

    • Monitors the turbochargers for critical faults, identifying them on time to prevent major damage
    • Reduces the risk of unplanned installation downtime
    • Reduces the risk for human injury
    • Fast and simple installation with pre-engineered connection components
    • Simple and reliable operation
    The Wärtsilä Turbocharger safety package can be installed on a selected range of Wärtsilä 32, Wärtsilä 34, Wärtsilä 46 and Wärtsilä 50 engines that are fitted with the Napier 357 turbocharger.
