The C38 is the most powerful centrifugal supercharger of the Rotrex standard product range. Countless number of large scale applications can be boosted by this very efficient and silent unit which supplies air flow up to 0.63 kg/s.
Impeller speeds of up to 90,000 rpm are achieved through the patented hi-speed planetary traction drive which combines small size with exceptional performance and durability.
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 C38 range is designed for four stroke gasoline engines with a supercharged output up to 530kW. Where one supercharger is not enough, it is possible to use two units to support large amounts of power in a twin-charger configuration. The C38 is also ideal for the supply of clean pressurized air for other applications such as industrial systems, fuel cell power plants etc.
The groundbreaking compact size enables a very flexible supercharger installation particularly on engine applications with tight space and where weight and size are essential. Rotrex uses as standard an 8 ribbed poly V-belt pulley in high strength steel. Pulley diameter ranges from 70 to 110mm 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.
