Default Crusty turbo hot side turbine —- how to clean ?

Doing a turbo rebuild

Looking for suggestions on what to use on the hot side turbine. I used brass bristle dermal before it was ok

Any chemical that will loosen that crud up?

If you have a gas powered pressure washer, or a GOOD electric one, there are some liquid media blasting kits. This is what I'd use, ghetto vapor honing.

Evapo-Rust. Have not done any turbine housings but couple exhaust manifolds. Harbor Freight has it or you can order online cheaper.

Evapo Rust is legit.

This (+heat to speed the process up) or sandblasting. Phosphoric acid is also nice, but I don't have experience with it on parts that have endure more heat.

e: Whoops. I was also thinking hot side housing, not turbine...

+1 for Evapo-Rust. It's reusable and has a long shelf-life, so it's nice to have around for general purpose rust removal chores. Soaking old hardware, brackets, etc. Krud Kutter is good stuff too. But it's more expensive than Evapo-Rust. And I don't think you can store and re-use it over and over again.

That said, if you really want to do it right (and don't want to do any scrubbing): 1 hour submerged in muriatic acid will probably make it look like new. Just keep an eye on it because it'll go after good metal once all the rust is gone.

Interesting on citric acid, have you used it on exhaust turbines?

I have access to a 25x10ft blasting room… but sand would I be too rough IMO …( we actually use iron media) http://turbobricks.com/forums/showpo...7&postcount=24

Gas powered pressure washer from Costco ftw here … I use it almost daily for the last few years

Those would be too abrasive

I’m sticking to my soda blasting because the turbine wheel is so delicate
