Cast vs MFS Compressor Wheels

2019-08-27

With the development and wider use of turbocharger, the application environment of supercharger is becoming more and more complex and unpredictable. Turbochargers are spinning faster than ever before and subjected to higher temperatures.


As a result, this has led to significant development in compressor wheel design

to cope with ever changing conditions.


Based on this request from customers and market,Refone now provide below two kinds of compressor wheel,used on cartridges and turbos.

Cast compressor wheels

Traditionally, cast compressor wheels is widely used in most turbochargers.They are produced from aluminium because of its low density weighing than steel. It is also a relatively simple and inexpensive process to cast compressor wheels, but a major disadvantage is that cast aluminium is inherently not as strong as other manufacturing techniques.

Machined From Solid

Short as MFS,also called Billet wheel.This wheel is designed primarily due to cast aluminium not being strong enough for higher operating conditions.

By using a forged aluminium bar, it is possible to use a much stronger aluminium alloy than can be used in the casting process. By using a stronger material, the wheel has a much longer life in comparison to cast wheels as it can carry much higher loads.

In addition, MFS wheels are ideal for low production runs,but for high speed request,cast compressor wheel still performance better cause it is much lighter than MFS wheel.

Refone are available to provide both of these two wheel for different cartridges.Any ideas about the application of the wheel,please contact us to communicate.
