FMC Coffin Pump Will Produce And Distribute TCU Turbochargers In U.S.

Coffin Turbo Pump, a Division of FMC Corporation, has signed a letter of intent to manufacture and distribute Turbo Charger Union b.v. (TCU) turbochargers in the U.S., announced John Burrows, operation manager.

TCU is based in Amsterdam, Holland, and has produced turbochargers for diesel engines for more than 35 years. TCU has over 10,000 successful installations.

"FMC Turbo Pump Division," Mr. Burrows said, "has become the predominant worldwide supplier of marine boiler feed pumps by offering a quality product, backed up by a highly responsive and comprehensive parts and service network. TCU has an outstanding reputation for product quality and provides Coffin with a logical extension into the diesel and gas engine market." TCU has fitted its turbochargers to industrial, marine, and railroad applications, and services them worldwide.

TCU manufactures radial design turbochargers for applications from 800 to 2,600 hp, and axial design turbochargers for applications up to 30,000 hp in single unit installations. The efficiencies of TCU turbochargers range up to 67 percent, said to be equal to or better than any turbocharger c u r r e n t l y on the market. These high efficiencies can translate directly into significant engine fuel savings and/or in better control of engine emissions.

TCU turbochargers are also designed to minimize maintenance and repairs. They are rugged in construction, with fully floating p l a i n b e a r i n g s ; they are aircooled, which eliminates casing corrosion problems. The rotating assembly is easily removable for servicing without disturbing exhaust gas inlet and outlet connections.
