TEP 3000 Turbocharger Injector Pump Extends Turbocharger Life — Literature Available

Lack of lubrication, both at start-up and shut-down, is the major cause of turbocharger failure. Oil starvation to the turbocharger bearings at start-up is due to the lag time associated with the oil pump reaching rated pressure and output and the turbocharger's immediate need for lubrication. Likewise, since the turbocharger is the last to receive lubrication at start-up, it is the first to lose lubrication at shut-down.

The TEP 3000 turbocharger injection pump solves both the start-up and shut-down problems.

The TEP 3000 is precision engineered, has undergone stringent evaluation by the Ministry of Defense and General Motors in England and is approved as standard equipment on all NATO turbocharged tactical vehicles and generator sets. Approvals from major engine manufacturers indicate no conflict with warranty.

The TEP 3000 is a two-stage pump that operates via a high tensile steel compression spring which preloads the whole assembly and pushes the piston forward to discharge oil under pressure to the turbocharger bearings. At start-up oil is injected into the turbocharger bearings at 15 psi for a period of two minutes, preventing lubricating starvation and bearing failure.

Immediately on engine shut-down and loss of oil pressure, oil is discharged at 20 psi for approximately two minutes, cooling and lubricating the turbocharger bearings during this critical time.

Once the piston has injected oil for two minutes at shut-down, the locking pin engages the solenoid and the piston is secured in stage one, ready for the next starting cycle.

The TEP 3000 can be installed in less than an hour and all necessary hardware, hoses, fittings, and brackets are included. It is fully compatible with all engines and turbochargers.

The TEP 3000 is manufactured in England and imported to the U.S. by Lubrication Consultants, Inc., Houston, Texas. The TEP 3000 is patented and fully warranted for two years against manufacturer's defects in materials and workmanship. The price is $395.
