The Rotrex C15 is an extremely compact centrifugal supercharger. Rotrex C15 is a range of centrifugal superchargers for large variety of applications where the compactness is one of the key issues. Countless number of small applications can now be boosted by this very efficient and silent unit which supplies air flow up to 0.22 kg/s.
Through the patented hi-speed planetary traction drive, the C15 achieves impeller speeds of up to 201,500 rpm. The exceptional high speeds of the drive give an unsurpassed power to size ratio compared to any other supercharger on the market.
The very low noise and vibration characteristic as well as the high efficiency of these superchargers set the industry standard for what is achievable.
The C15 range of superchargers is designed for four stroke gasoline engines. However two stroke engines or even diesel engines can benefit from these superchargers with remarkable results. Depending on the application the C15 will support engine outputs up to 175kW. The C15 can also supply clean pressurized air for other applications such as exhaust gas after-treatment systems, agriculture applications, fuel cell power plants etc.
The groundbreaking compact size enables a very flexible supercharger installation particularly on engine applications where optimum efficiency as well as weight and size are essential. Rotrex uses as standard 7 or 8 ribbed poly V-belt pulleys. The 7 ribbed pulleys are available in aluminium and the material of the 8 ribbed versions is high strength steel. For both versions, pulley diameter ranges from 70 to 90mm in 5mm steps.
The supercharger can be ordered with the compressor housing mounted in one of six different outlet positions with 60 degree intervals to allow easy adoption to any application. For specific outlet positions please refer to dimension drawing found in this document.
