Turbochargers TM87 and TM180
Our new generation turbochargers, TM87 and TM180, are reliable and improved models, with type approval certificates No 15/00096 by Lloyd’s Register and No 42697/A0 BV by Bureau Veritas. Properly designed with high strength materials ensure high performance and regular operation of the ships engine. Turbocharger models TM87 and TM180 are matching with Daihatsu, Yanmar, Mitsubishi, Wartsila, MAN-B&W D/Gs.
The special design of the two models, TM87 and TM180, renders their installation and maintenance fast and simple, even by non-specialized crew members. The adoption of high quality and strength materials guarantee their reliable and trouble-free operation.
Technical Highlights of TM87 and TM180
One of the major causes of T/C breakdown is due to surge phenomena. At low mass flow rates, a separation of a portion of flow may occur with strong pressure gradients and reversal flow. In many situations, it has been demonstrated that by using a ported shroud this backflow can be released, hence instabilities and surge phenomena can be reduced. Our new Turbochargers models, TM87 and TM180, include this technological enhancement in order to widen the surge margin and make the T/C operation more stable.
- Design of blades that guarantees the optimal aerodynamic performance and offers a high endurance.
- Splitter blades for an improved flow throughout the operating range, reducing the load on the main blades.
- Improved efficiency, which leads to a reduced fuel consumption and temperature.
- Compressor design for a wider operating range, so that a safe distance is achieved from the surge line and the choke line after the matching.
