Product Announcement from Firwin Corp.
Firwin Corp. has supplied thousands of custom designed turbo-charger insulation blankets for a wide variety of engines. Each blanket is carefully designed to fit the turbocharger of each engine make and model. Turbochargers with waste-gates can also be covered.
Ø FIRWIN TURBO BLANKETS INCREASE ENGINE PERFORMANCE
Firwin turbo blankets reduce the heat loss through the turbo walls. This enhances engine power in several ways:
Þ Higher turbo temperature reduces turbo lag.
Þ Higher exhaust temperature increases exhaust flow.
Þ A Firwin blanket on the turbo keeps the intake side cold. This increases power and efficiency.
Ø FIRWIN TURBO BLANKETS REDUCE TURBO HEAT EMMISSION
Typically, a Firwin turbo cover will reduce the touch temperature of a turbocharger by about 75%. Advantages:
Þ Significantly reduced danger of burns
Þ Significant reduction of engine room temperature making the working environment safer and more comfortable to work in.
Þ Reduces thermal deterioration on surrounding engine parts and fittings.
In addition to turbo insulation, Firwin designs custom insulation solutions for engine manifolds, mufflers and complete exhaust systems.
 This value will vary depending on a number of variables such as the actual temperature of the turbo, ambient temperature, and specific insulation type used. At an exhaust gas temperature of 900°F (482°C) a fiberglass Firwin blanket will drop the touch temperature to approximately 230°F (110°C) when the surrounding ambient temperature is 80°F (26°C).
