Maintenance and Care Instructions
Caring for your Tesla Turbine prototype not only extends its lifespan, but it also ensures the best possible performance. Please follow these maintenance instructions to keep your turbine in optimal condition.
General Cleaning: Regularly remove dust and debris from the turbine. Polycarbonate casing and aluminum disks should be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or materials that may scratch or damage the casing or the discs.
Bearings Maintenance: The bearings of your Tesla Turbine need to be periodically lubricated and checked for wear and tear. If continuous use of the turbine is desired, cooling is required for the bearings. Ports for cooling water have been provided, but you'll need to acquire a separate water pump and cooling water system.
Shaft Inspection: The stainless steel shaft should be inspected for any signs of wear, bending, or damage. In the event of any abnormalities, cease operation immediately and contact us for support.
Operational Temperatures: Ensure the operational temperature of the turbine does not exceed 85°C. Excessive heat can cause damage to the internal components of the turbine.
Safe RPM Maintenance: Ensure the turbine does not exceed 30,000 RPM with the aluminum discs. Exceeding this limit can lead to premature wear and potentially dangerous situations.
Inlet and Outlet Inspection: Regularly check the dual 1/2in NPT nozzle inlet for any signs of blockage or damage. Clear any blockages and replace damaged parts as necessary to maintain optimal performance.
Bolt and Screw Checks: Regularly check all bolts and screws for their torque specification. Loose bolts and screws can lead to operational inefficiencies and potential safety hazards.
Upgrade and Repair: Our turbine has been designed for easy upgradeability to a two-stage version with our add-on package. All repairs and upgrades should be done following our official instructional videos found on the TesTur Energy YouTube channel. Never attempt to modify the turbine while it is operating.
Storage: When not in use, the turbine should be stored in a clean, dry environment away from direct sunlight or high temperatures. This will protect the turbine from premature wear and environmental damage.
Replacement Parts: We offer replacement parts for every component of your turbine. Check our website for details. Using only official TesTur Energy parts ensures your turbine maintains optimal performance and safety standards.
Remember, your Tesla Turbine is a prototype and requires careful handling. Any modifications or misuse outside of these guidelines can potentially lead to performance issues, damage, or safety hazards.
Always refer to the detailed maintenance guide provided with your purchase and the step-by-step maintenance videos on our TesTur Energy YouTube channel for comprehensive maintenance procedures.
