Cummins Inc.'s reliable and durable technologies continue to lead the industrial, high horsepower turbocharger market. The revitalized Series 850 Holset® Turbocharger is a world-class product that meets or exceeds the unique product specifications and uptime requirements of its global customers and offers a new compressor stage that provides a more efficient and aerodynamically-focused product.

>6:1 pressure ratio (Vaneless or Vaned)
25% to 40% power uprated achievable
Increased altitude capability
~5% improvement in BSFC (simulated) when matched with HPRC
New inverse impeller:
Bespoke design optimized to meet higher performance with improved durability
Vaned and vaneless diffuser:
Vaneless design offers enhanced map width at higher pressure ratios, whereas vaned design offers efficient higher pressure ratio capability with flexibility to improve usability by altering vane designs.
Thin wall stainless steel compressor cover:
Stainless steel compressor cover offers weight reduction against cast iron version attributed to investment casting process to cast thin-walled castings.
