SUPERCHARGER UNITS

The Raptor supercharger essentially operates like a high speed fan (driven by belt from crankshaft) propeller / impeller, sucking air into the center of the supercharger and pushing it to the outside of the rapidly spinning (40,000 + rpm) impeller blades. The air naturally travels to the outside of the blades because of its centrifugal force created by its rotating inertia. At the outside of the blades, a "scroll" is waiting to catch the air molecules. Just before entering the scroll, the air molecules are forced to travel through a venturi, which creates the internal compression. As the air travels around the scroll, the diameter of the scroll increases, which slows the velocity of the air, but further increases its pressure.

The centrifugal supercharger enjoys several advantageous characteristics that make it the most popular supercharger design in the aftermarket world. First, it is simple and reliable because it has very few moving parts - just a couple of pulleys and the impeller. Second, the centrifugal supercharger produces very little heat because of its internal compression ratio. It is also small in size and very versatile because it can "free-wheel" and allow the engine to suck air through it or even flow air backwards. For this reason it can be placed anywhere in the intake tract - it can even "blow through" the throttle body, meaning it can be mounted nearly anywhere. It is also the most thermally efficient supercharger, meaning that it produces the lowest discharge temperature.

Raptor centrifugal superchargers have a self-lubricating system, no oil is needed from the engine. Due to this feature Raptor supercharger systems are very easy to fit and the supercharger is virtually maintenance free.

Raptor superchargers benefit the entire RPM range of your engine, improved low, mid range with excellent top end gains.

SUPERCHARGER MODELS

Raptor V, VL, VLLC, CLLC and VLDC

Most compact centrifugal supercharger manufactured in Australia

The Raptor V is unsurpassed for power development potential due to the low boost temperature rise. This supercharger is the only centrifugal supercharger to boast forced transmission air-cooling which prevents heat transfer into the compressor wheel as well the ceramic coating on comp wheel thus increasing Hp potential.

Raptor V Hybrid

The Raptor V Hybrid is a combination of the proven Raptor V transmission and the Raptor R compressor section, this combination provides greater airflow for engines of 4.0 litres and larger.

This unit will retro fit to any Raptor V mounting bracket, a check needs to be peformed that there is sufficient space to acccomodate the large compressor.

Select the Hybrid for your next supercharger system or upgrade your current setup, either way experience massive power from a compact headunit
