The relationship between rotor parameters and performance of a high efficiency type supercharger (Lysholm compressor) was studied. It is necessary that. The cost to repair the Lysholm Compressor Oil Seals is estimated at $ and why does it cost so much to repair the oil seals. The present invention relates to compressors of the rotary screw type in which two or more cooperating rotors mounted within a suitable casing operate to.

On the downside, lyeholm is very expensive to build, because the tightly meshed nature of the lyysholm means they need very high precision machining. The Lysholm design offered a gradual compression of the entrapped air prior to exposure to the high pressure air at the discharge port.

Besides, better internal air flow management reduces air noise. Due to the limited adjustment in compressor power consumption relative to compressed-air output capacity, modulation is a generally inefficient method of control when compared to variable-speed drives.

In fact, Roots-type superchargers waste a lot of energy in the form of heat. At the intake end the male lobe is much smaller than its female counterpart, but the relative sizes reverse proportions along the lengths of both compresspr the male becomes larger and the female smaller until tangential to the discharge port the clearance space between each pair of lobes is much smaller. This scheme is utilised by nearly all industrial air-compressor manufacturers.

On the other hand, sports cars find little merits to use it. In the form of apparatus cimpressor, the end walls limit the axial extent of the compression spaces. Usually the male rotor has fewer lobes than the female rotor, so that it rotates faster.

They are commonly used to replace piston compressors where large volumes of high-pressure air are needed, either for large industrial applications or to operate high-power air tools such as jackhammers and impact wrenches. Therefore this supercharger construction is far from efficient. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. At the start of expansion phase, you can see a new space is created between the rotors the blue area.


Construction compressors are used to provide compressed air to jack hammers, riveting tools, pneumatic pumps, sand blasting operations and industrial paint systems. A typical supercharger transforms the output characteristic very much – it flattens the torque curve and shifts its peak towards the lower end of spectrum. The high costs hampers its popularity. The working fluid which has previously entered the compressor to the suction space 74 has been confined in the space or pocket P in the rotor I0.

This development led oysholm a supercharger which was compact and lightweight with increased efficiency for operating conditions of pressure and speed. The effectiveness of this mechanism is dependent on precisely fitting clearances between the helical rotors and between the rotors and the chamber for sealing of the compression cavities.

Apart from high boost pressure, Lysholm supercharger has advantages of high efficiency, wide rpm range and compact size, so it is the first choice for performance cars. Sign in to annotate.

Low efficiency, low boost, consumes lots of power at high rev, ugly noise. Moreover, the rotor lobes are made twisted see the third picture for a better view. This translates to higher efficiency, of course. The more detailed nature of the invention and the manner in which the above stated and other and more detailed objects of the ylsholm may be advantageously accomplished will appear more fully in the ensuing portion of this specification in which suitable embodiments of apparatus for carrying the invention into effect are described.

The company which had just appointed him Chief Engineer was in trouble. A rotary-screw compressor is a type of gas compressorsuch as an air compressor, that uses a rotary-type positive-displacement mechanism.

The sealing strips were left high and allowed to seat themselves in to the cylinder casings.

It delivered 4, cfm 45 psig at only 3, revolutions per minute. To promote the axial flowing of air, the outlet is opened at the opposite end and twisted rotors are used. As an example, a HP compound compressor is a large piece of equipment that generally requires a special foundation, building accommodations and highly trained rigger s to place the equipment.


Let’s look back to the illustration above. They are best applied in applications that have a continuous air demand such as food packaging plants and automated manufacturing systems. With later technology, manufacturing cost has been comptessor while performance increased.

That was probly one of Mazda’s ideas. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. By comparison, Roots blowers always have the same number of lobes on both rotors, typically 2, 3 or 4.

In an oil-injected rotary-screw compressor, oil is injected into the compression cavities to aid sealing and provide cooling sink for the gas charge. It uses the compressor to force the exhaust gas out at the same time as it’s pushing in the intake gas, and without compressed air pushing it through, no air would move through the system both the intake and exhaust valves are open at the same time.

I can get more than that just from eating dinner at Taco Bell and waiting a few hours Now we were getting somewhere.

By comparison, conventional “Roots” type blowers have either identical rotors with straight rotors or mirror-image rotors with helixed rotors. The Lysholms aren’t as popular as the roots type or the centrifical, but there about as effective, non the less.
