Turbo nightmare

Hi all newbee needing advice.
2008 clubman, 95000 on clock. In December my turbo gave way, on investigation by local garage it was due to blocked oil pick up pipe. New turbo fitted and new pipe etc as per warrantee instructions. After approx 3000 miles, oil pressure issues, light on, rattly top end. Back to garage, oil pick up blocked, engine flush new pipe and oil, all good. 40 miles later, turbo has blown again. The garage are replacing under warrantee, but my question to you guys is,where is all this crap coming from, it's not an injector issue as they have all been fitted with new seals and are not leaking, what else can generate this amount of sludge?
