TurboBoss is a single, custom-molded hose that can meet the multifaceted demands of a turbocharger system.
Veyance Technologies Inc., manufacturer of Goodyear Engineered Products, introduced the TurboBoss line of turbocharger hoses, specifically designed as an economical alternative to other turbocharger components without sacrificing the power and reliability demanded by heavy-duty applications.
In response to industry and regulatory demands, heavy-duty engine designers often turn to intercooled turbocharger systems to reduce engine size and weight while increasing horsepower capacity. While most turbocharger hose assemblies are made of silicone couplings and metal piping, TurboBoss utilizes Veyance’s advanced rubber technology, providing cost savings and superior performance to the customer, according to the manufacturer.
“OEMs often needlessly overpay because they buy turbocharger hose designed to handle temperatures far higher than what many applications are exposed to,” said Tim Montbach, Veyance marketing manager of heavy-duty OE products. “With TurboBoss, they now have the choice of a variety of hoses using advanced rubber compounds, each designed for a specific temperature range — both hot and cold — for turbocharger air cooling systems.”
Using a layered construction with multiple rubber compounds, TurboBoss is a single, custom-molded hose that can meet the multifaceted demands of a turbocharger system. The light-weight TurboBoss hose is easier to install and seal than silicone hoses and can be customized to fit nearly any molded configuration.
