Road Performance of a Comprex Supercharged Diesel Truck 600042
THE COMPREX SUPERCHARGER has been installed and road tested in a White truck tractor (Model 9000) and with a Cummins diesel engine (JT-6-B-20°). This paper reports the results of the tests.
The Comprex delivers high air density over a wide engine speed range, and responds immediately to load changes. The authors report that the supercharge gives desirable operating characteristics for a truck diesel engine.
Response, clean exhaust, fewer gearshifts, and improved fuel consumption are among the advantages the authors describe.*
