VTR 100

The Turbo Technics VTR (Vane-flow Test Rig) machines are built at the TT UK head quarters to enable the measurement and adjustment of mass air flow through variable geometry turbochargers. The machine has been designed to include automatic compensation for atmospheric pressure and temperature, providing consistent results in different environments.

The VTR100 is a simplified version of the VTR200, suitable for all passenger car and light commercial turbo applications, and is built to suit the needs of the smaller workshop. It is designed to set VNT (Variable Nozzle Turbocharger) mechanisms to the required gas flow using TT-generated software templates. In addition to the extensive range of TT supplied templates, customer operators can create their own templates.

Flow Setting Process

This machine has the capability to control pneumatic actuators including vacuum, pressure and vacuum with position sensors providing voltage feedback. Turbos which use electronic actuators can also be tested using an electronic actuator tester/programmer the ATP 100 (available separately or integrated into the machine if bought together)

Atmospheric pressure, altitude and temperature correction is incorporated within the software. Flow setting on the VTR 100 takes place with the turbo fully assembled, placing it in the cradle and connecting the air supply by means of magnetic inlet and outlet adaptors to suit a range of different turbocharger flange types including single flange, V-band and manifold.

Compressed air is supplied at precisely controlled pressure and the flow measured. Correction for altitude and temperature is applied and compared to the template. A ‘live’ adjustment is then made to the turbo’s VNT mechanism until a pass is achieved.

Importantly, the machine operation closely follows the methods used by OEMs on their production lines, giving a reliable setting procedure for the remanufacture industry.
