    Maintenance on a turbocharger is critical to obtain a long and hassle free service life. A turbocharger must regularly withstand extreme operating conditions - with exhaust inlet temperatures exceeding 1600° F and the turbine wheel rotating at over 90,000 RPM. At all 100 hour inspections the turbine and compression wheel blades must be carefully inspected for any cracks or damage caused by foreign object damage. It is also important to turn the wheels by hand and inspect for any drag or rubbing against the housing. One of the most important processes in the turbocharger is the lubrication system, which is provided by the aircraft engine oil. Oil contamination, foreign object damage, and oil supply problems are the most frequent reasons for premature turbocharger failure and can lead to overheating of the bearings and the center housing.
