The Turbo Technics VTR200 was developed as part of a remanufacturing programme for variable geometry turbos directed specifically at OE vehicle manufacturers.

The same technology is now available in the aftermarket to meet the needs of an ever growing demand from within the turbo repair and remanufacturing industry.

The VTR is designed to check both the flow and actuator characteristics of variable geometry turbos and re-set to the manufacturers’ original specifications. Remanufacturers and repairers can now have the confidence to rebuild turbos fitted with variable geometry mechanisms in the knowledge that they can reset those mechanisms to OE equivalent settings.

Unlike other flow-checking machines, the VTR200 follows the same test method as used by OE turbo manufacturers at original manufacture.

The quick-release mounting adapter system allows the air connection to the turbo to be made away from the machine and then ‘plugged in’ for test.

The precision air measuring system ensures a high degree of accuracy, and the comprehensive software fully compensates for changes in air pressure, temperature, humidity and altitude.

Flow adjustments are made ‘live’, speeding the setting process, and the actuator response is displayed graphically on the screen. Position sensor voltages can also be displayed graphically, and test data can be saved/printed.

The VTR can control both pressure and vacuum actuators as standard, with plug-in electronic actuator drivers available as additional items for virtually all types of electric actuator.
