If your number represents 13:30, you can try this:

declare @myVar int = 1130

select right(convert(nvarchar(30), cast('1/1/1900 ' + stuff(@myVar,3,0,':') as datetime), 100),7)

what should 900 represent 9:00?  If so, make this modification.
declare @myVar int = 900

select right(convert(nvarchar(30), cast('1/1/00 ' + stuff(right('0' + cast(@myVar as nvarchar(4)),4),3,0,':') as datetime), 100),7)

Hmmm... yeah, I see a problem.

How would you represent 12:01 AM as an integer in your above example?

I'm also assuming that you can't use the DateTime and SmallDateTime type fields for some reason.  Storing time like this via an integer is less than optimal.

what about this

declare @myVar int = 1330
select cast((@myVar / 100) % 12 as varchar ) + ':' + cast(@myVar %100 as varchar) + ' ' +
case when (@myVar / 100) > 12 then 'PM' else 'AM' end

or better

declare @myVar int = 900
select cast((@myVar / 100) % 12 as varchar ) + ':' + right('00' + cast(@myVar %100 as varchar),2) + ' ' +
case when (@myVar / 100) > 12 then 'PM' else 'AM' end

9:00 AM

Another thought to help potentially troubleshoot issues with this...

Do you get any results for this query (replace myTimeIntField)

select [myTimeIntField]
right(CAST([myTimeIntField] as varchar(4)),2) > 59

This would catch an int value like this 980, which wouldn't be a valid time (i would assume)

Just a "heads up" that the following input will create 9:89 AM.

declare @myVar int = 989

select cast((@myVar / 100) % 12 as varchar ) + ':' + right('00' + cast(@myVar %100 as varchar),2) + ' ' +
case when (@myVar / 100) > 12 then 'PM' else 'AM' end
