Durable Turbocharger Bearing Systems for High Temperature Applications 870299

Water cooled designs are now available that reduce peak turbocharger bearing system metal temperatures after engine shut-down below the levels that promote deterioration of mineral-based lubricating oil. Field warranty data clearly supports the benefit gained in reducing these temperatures.
