THE COMPREX DIESEL SUPERCHARGER 590001

THE Comprex is one of the recent developments aimed toward improvement of the turbocharger. The device seems to be most adaptable to small-sized diesel engines where high turbocharger efficiency is hard to achieve.
In the Comprex, the theory of nonsteady flow permits an accurate analysis of a cycle in order to optimize such parameters as air- and gas-intake temperatures, air intake and discharge pressures, air and gas mass flows, porting arrangements, rotor size and speed.
Experiments thus far indicate that the Comprex is capable of delivering high-density air over a wide range of engine speed and permits immediate load changes without lag and smoke.
