How To Test A Torque Converter

The heavy duty machines that are used for industrial or construction purposes need proper maintenance and repair. Industrial torque converter problems can come from a number of things. 

List of common industrial torque converter problems: 

– Not Properly Installed

– May start to Overheat

– Blades could start to deform

Reasons why these problems exist & how to test a torque converter for these common issues:

  1. Torque Converter Installation Problems: It is always better to have a new torque converter professionally cleaned after any kind of new cooler lines or radiator installation. This is very important because you want to ensure that any contamination has been wiped cleaned and completely out of the system. You don’t want any failure from the old debris to be ingested because this can cause you to have to pay more money and it can be expensive.
  2. Overheating: Overheating is very common for industrial machinery since it’s caused when the machines are used constantly. There are several factors that can contribute to overheating that you will want to test and confirm. For example, unexpectedly low fluid pressure or even the air pressure levels in the system can correlate with overheating. The pump can and will fail due to clogged filters, over-worn suction lines could begin to crack, or there could be an issue with the charging pump. Improper fluid circulation, damaged seals, or broken gaskets can all be related to the torque converter overheating so testing for those issues can help you prevent and solve overheating issues.
  3. Damaged Blades: Torque converter blades can break into small pieces if too much heat is exposed to them. This can be expensive to repair, however it’s always better to catch a problem before it gets worse. Otherwise, a problem that could start off by just needing a repair could turn into a problem that needs a full rebuild, for example, if the problem is allowed to continue over time and the turbine blades start pulling away from the hubs.

Properly testing and maintaining your machine’s torque converter is crucial to ensure proper long-term maintenance. If you need help, replacement parts, or repair services, give our experts at K&L Clutch a call today!
