Remanufacturing Turbochargers at Owen Developments

Why remanufacture turbochargers?



Due to rising global fuel prices and stricter emissions regulations turbocharged road cars have become the norm; some 65% of road cars in Europe are turbocharged with that figure expected to have increased to 85% by the end of this year. The United States isn’t far behind, with 40% of vehicles being turbocharged and that number set to increase as well.

This widespread adoption of turbocharging since the late 1990s had led a vast increase in the number of turbos manufactured for new production vehicles, which will reach 50 million per year by the end of the decade.  Manufacturing this many turbochargers consumes a significant amount of earth sourced materials and energy, some of which can be offset by remanufacturing used units. High-quality remanufactured units offer the same level of reliability and have the same life expectancy as brand new units, but at a reduced cost to the end user. When these schemes started the aim was focussed on supplying the end user with a replacement turbo at a reduced cost. Over the years the emphasis has changed towards sustainability and the importance of recycling and taking care of the planet we call home, though the reduced cost to the end user is still a strong incentive.
