VNT Electronic Actuator Testing
Turbo Dynamics has the facility to undertake electronic actuator testing on Garrett VNT turbochargers and other turbos with electronic actuators, using the latest turbo fault test equipment by Honeywell. The HandyCAN 3 by Honeywell, is a dedicated diagnostic tool that helps us quickly and accurately diagnose suspected faults in turbochargers equipped with electronic actuators.
This sophisticated device checks both mechanical and electrical functions of the turbo chargers actuator which can be tested with VNT™ mechanism connected or disconnected. This checks function of VNT™ mechanism for free movement, restricted movement or complete lock-up; thereby confirming if any problem lies within the actuator or the VNT™ mechanism.
Motorists deserve to know that the complexity of the new "VNT" and "Electronic Actuator" or "REA" range of turbochargers means any attempt to remanufacture these units is fraught with difficulty which could lead to potentially serious problems. To safeguard customer's interests Garret will only supply new replacement units for VNT technology. This is why Turbo Dynamics, as an officially authorised "Garrett Parts and Service Centre" only supplies brand new VNT turbochargers instead of remanufactured units.
The market is currently saturated with a large and growing number of misdiagnosed turbo faults which the unscrupulous and unauthorised turbo repairers are capitalising on, but the HandyCAN gives Turbo Dynamics a technical advantage and customers the peace of mind that they will receive the correct diagnosis every time and the possibility of saving money by not having to replace their turbocharger!
