Wärtsilä Turbocharger wash

The Wärtsilä Turbocharger wash is a cost effective and efficient means of preventing the unexpected and maintaining the turbocharger in good operating condition.

Regular cleaning to remove the build-up of deposits on the turbine and compressor sides of turbochargers extends the interval between overhauls and keeps them in good operating condition. To facilitate this maintenance routine, Wärtsilä offers a fully-automated wash unit, which eliminates the need for manual timing of the wash sequence, and the manual opening and closing of valves. The wash unit controls the wash sequence from the PLC or from a separate control unit.

    Technical info

    Operating principle:

    A counter, which can be set between 5 and 500 hours, keeps the operator informed of the running hours accumulated so that the wash can be initiated at the appropriate time. The washing sequence is started from the control and monitoring system (WOIS) in the control room, or from the local control panel.


    • Fully-automated, remote-controlled washing
    • Safe and with minimal risk of component damage
    • Compact plug-and-play unit
    • Prolonged lifetime of components
