TPL turbochargers make a vital contribution in all three of these overhauls.
areas. The TPL-C series was developed for advanced medium-
speed, 4-stroke diesel and gas engines in the power range
of 3,000 kW to 12,000 kW per turbocharger.

High turbocharger efficiency and compressor pressure ratios

reduce fuel consumption and increase engine power output
while helping customers satisfy the new environmental require-
ments coming into force.

Performance you can rely on
The TPL-C is rugged, reliable and compact, for peak

The TPL-C turbocharger takes account of the demands of
the future 4-stroke market with two different turbines: ␲c [-]
The turbine of the two smaller sizes (TPL 67-C and TPL 71-C),
with lacing wire and in the case of the TPL 67-C also with 5.5
shroud, is designed for quasi-constant pressure as well as
pulse charging systems; the turbine of the larger TPL 76-C 5.0

by the engine lube oil system. The main axial bearing consists
of a free-floating thrust disk with profiles on both sides, rotat-
ing at about half the rotor speed. This ensures thick oil films,
offering extra-high resistance to wear caused by contaminated
oil. Disk wear is also reduced by the application of an extremely
hard coating. The radial bearing bushes are fixed with screws
and centered in a squeeze oil film damper.
