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.

Rotary compressor – Alf, Lysholm

The term “blower” is commonly used to define a device placed on compeessor with a functional need for additional airflow, such as a 2-stroke Diesel enginewhere positive intake pressure is needed to “scavenge”, or clear spent exhaust gasses from the cylinder and force a fresh intake charge into the cylinder before the compression stroke. For questions on access or troubleshooting, please check our FAQsand if you can”t find the lsholm there, please contact us.

The compressor illustrated in Figs. In the position of the rotors shown in Fig. This motion does not compress the air inside the supercharger.

However, a variable-speed drive provides for a linear relationship between compressor power consumption and free air delivery. The nozzle 50 is mounted in a suitable cover plate 58 which forms gg: Disadvantage – Who use it? While some centrifugal superchargers are consistent and reliable, they typically do not produce full boost until near peak engine rpm, while positive displacement superchargers such as Roots type superchargers and twin-screw types offer more immediate boost.

As a result, the part vacuum created is also enormous and the air rushes into this space at very high velocity. By comparison, Roots blowers always have the same number of lobes on both rotors, typically 2, 3 or 4. Search Expert Search Quick Search.

The working area is the inter-lobe volume between the male and female rotors. Lysholm screw type supercharger A typical Lysholm supercharger has a 3-lobe male screw and a 5-lobe female screw, though other combinations are possible.

Axial and Lysholm compressors by Mohamed Sharkawy on Prezi

Commons category link is on Wikidata. P icture a young Alf Lysholm peering into an book of German patent applications, looking for ideas. Sign in Already have an account? Advantage High efficiency, high boost pressure, wide rpm range.

I can get more than that just from eating dinner at Taco Bell and waiting a few hours The Lysholm design offered a gradual compression of the entrapped air prior to exposure to the high pressure air at the discharge port.

Of course, the latter helps generating more power. Although the rotors had timing gears on the drive end, Mr.

About Lysholm

That is why the modern Roots superchargers you can find on production cars have a rather different construction, as shown in the second picture. Relocating the inlet has a couple of advantages. However, an even higher percentage of comprrssor loss is due to the internal flow of the supercharger.

Consequently, the aforementioned waste of kinetic energy is also reduced. Using CFM to rate a compressor is incorrect because it represents a flow rate that is independent of a pressure reference. Genuine Lysholm Technology Multiple OE customers have successfully completed extensive and brutal evaluations of the Lysholm unit prior to their incorporation into their products.

This reduction in the pressure of the working medium which has already been partially compressed results in an increase in entropy with a corresponding loss of work.

This largely reduces pumping loss, but the moving mechanicals still consumes power due to friction. On the downside, the charger itself is rather heavy and energy inefficient, thus it cannot produce as much power as turbocharger. The advancement of other technologies, such as variable valve timing, direct-injection, light-pressure turbos and advanced turbo diesel, also threatened the very existence of supercharging.

By comparison, conventional “Roots” type blowers have either identical rotors with straight rotors or mirror-image rotors with helixed rotors.

Advantage Highest efficiency among mechanical superchargers, high boost pressure, small and light. Incompressoe Kompressor engines on C-class were replaced with turbocharged oysholm, ending the company’s mass use of superchargers. It was good for an oil free 2: Sign in to annotate. Consequently, a smooth flowing is obtained and efficiency is enhanced. The oil captures non-polar particulates from the incoming air, effectively reducing the particle loading of compressed-air particulate filtration.


The Whipple-manufactured male rotor has three lobes, the female five lobes. One way that variable displacement may be accomplished is by using multiple lifting valves on the suction side of the compressor, each plumbed to a corresponding location on the discharge.

Lysholm is the source of the twin-screw, positive displacement compressor technology for automotive and marine applications. Especially at high rev, it generates a lot of friction hence energy loss and prevent the engine from revving higher. They are commonly compressog 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.

Retrieved 9 July In a dry-running rotary-screw compressor, timing gears ensure that the male and female rotors maintain precise alignment.

Clmpressor type supercharger Roots type supercharger is named after its inventor, the Roots brothers.

Rotary-screw compressor

Multiple OE customers have successfully completed extensive and brutal evaluations of the Lysholm unit prior to their incorporation into their products.

And another thing, it has been around since ’93 in some parts of the lyssholm. Gas enters at the suction side and moves through the threads as the screws rotate. On the other hand, sports cars find little merits to use it. Ram air intakes can be easily seen in motor racing. Please subscribe or login to access full text content. Low efficiency, low boost, consumes lots of power at high rev, ugly noise.

Lyshollm supercharger consists of 2 screws, one with male threads and another with female threads.
