Compressor Wheels

compressor wheels

We have a wide range of compressor wheels available for passenger cars through to larger commercial vehicles and off highway applications:

  • All our compressor wheels are manufactured, cast machined and balanced at high quality facilities;
  • High balancing specification is achieved by using fully automated, OEM equivalent balancing equipment;

Material Quality

The quality of the material and the casting process is extremely important to produce a high strength cast compressor wheel:

  • Post process treatments are critical to ensure the correct strength is achieved, if the compressor wheel is not strong enough, it will fail;
  • Many low quality compressor wheel failures are often mistaken to be standard turbo failures e.g. loss of blade could be foreign object damage, signs of overspeeding – this could be due to poor material quality rather than the turbo overspeeding;
  • The blades bend in the heat and suffer from fatigue causing them to break off on low quality wheels;
  • Melett compressor wheels are manufactured to the correct specification; ensuring  their strength;
  • Melett’s threaded bore compressor wheels are produced to the same specifications as OEM components;
  • We also produce Machined From Solid (MFS) compressor wheels. These are becoming increasingly popular as new OEM developments continue to arrive in the aftermarket.
