We are delighted to introduce Melett Turbochargers, our new range of precision engineered turbos.
We can now offer our customers a complete product portfolio, including everything from individual piece parts right through to the complete turbo unit.
Ian Warhurst Melett’s Owner and Managing Director says; “We have been asked for many years to produce turbochargers. Invaluable customer feedback about applications which are often destroyed beyond repair, the lack of availability of old core in the aftermarket and complexities with electronic actuation, has strongly influenced our decision to produce this new range.
“Melett Turbochargers allow you to offer a premium brand turbo as an alternative to an OEM turbo, whilst retaining the exchange unit to restart the repair cycle.”
Ian continues, “Our aim is to produce the turbochargers our customers require and in particular, the turbos they are unable to repair. The decision to produce complete turbochargers is not a substitute for our range of turbocharger parts, repair kits and core assemblies, but is designed to complement our current product offering and further support the turbo reconditioning industry. A critical part of this, however, will be further market feedback which will drive our product development programme”.
Melett Turbochargers are manufactured to Melett drawings, created by our in-house engineering team, and the majority of parts are produced using Melett owned and controlled tooling. The turbos undergo extensive in-house and vehicle testing to ensure they match the OE specification. All Melett Turbochargers are built, balanced and flowed to the highest quality standards in our dedicated UK production facility.
We have spent the last two years working closely with industry automotive experts to develop our new range of electronically controlled actuators. The REA/SREA actuators have undergone extensive testing, and include different configurations offering analogue or digital communication to the vehicle’s ECU, the digital option also uses PWM and CAN bus control interfaces. The electronic actuators are available separately offering a robust, yet cost effective alternative to the OE product.
Fitting kits will be included with each Melett Turbocharger, including an oil syringe, stainless steel gaskets (turbine), fibre or metal-rubber gaskets (oil) and copper washers, studs and nuts, where necessary.
The decision to produce complete turbochargers is not a substitute for our vast range of turbocharger parts, repair kits and core assemblies. The new range is designed to complement our current product offering to further support the turbo reconditioning industry.
