Performance Superchargers are compressors that are used to boost the performance of an automobile's engine.M The supercharger essentially pressurizes the air intake above atmospheric pressure, thereby increasing the amount of oxygen per cycle and consequently, the amount of fuel that is burnt. Thus, the amount of work generated by the engine is boosted. The supercharger differs from the turbocharger in that it is driven by a mechanical means like a belt- or chain-drive from the crankshaft, while the turbocharger is driven by a turbine powered by the exhaust gases.
When the air is compressed, its temperature increases and its density decreases. This low-density air will be unable to expand enough to create enough power during ignition. Therefore, the supercharger cools down the compressed air through the intercooler, a component with a function similar to that of a radiator. The cool, high-density air is transferred to the intake valve. Superchargers are classified as roots, twin-screw and centrifugal superchargers, based on how the air is moved to the intake valve.
If your car has trouble accelerating or if you hear a clacking sound when your car is idling, there might be an issue with you supercharger. Worn and discolored gear teeth can indicate a lack of oil. A damaged performance supercharger should be replaced as soon as possible to avoid exposing your engine to further risks.
