Title: TURBOCHARGER WITH ALUMINUM BEARING HOUSING
Abstract:
In an aluminum turbocharger bearing housing, there is a potential for wear of the bearing housing at the interface with the journal bearing system. With a protective hard anodized surface, the wear resistance and resistance to chemical attack of the bearing housing can be improved so that an aluminum bearing housing can have the life of a cast iron bearing housing, at greatly reduced weight.
