For operators running on heavy fuel oil (HFO), the turbocharger efficiency suffers due to the residue that is collected on the nozzle ring from burning HFO. Regular washing becomes the immediate and most practical solution to keep the residues in check and maintain turbocharging efficiency.
However, regular washing leads to significant operational downtimes and loss in productivity. Field studies have shown that with coated nozzle rings, operators can greatly reduce the cleaning intervals. Extended cleaning intervals mean maximum uptime, increased productivity and profitability.
