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.
