Animation on How a Supercharger/Blower Works Created by Ogura


Ogura Industrial has created a new animation showing how a supercharger/air blower works. Many people are familiar with the term supercharger from the automotive world but are unaware of the many other uses of these high-performance units. Have you ever wondered how it works? This new three minute animation provides a quick understanding of how a supercharger operates for engine applications, but also for use in a variety of applications like air blow off and drying systems, agricultural sprayers and fuel cells, because of the high efficiency needed. Ogura superchargers come in eight different standard models and can provide a discharge volume from 100 to 2,800 cc per revolution with many units comfortably operating at 12,000 rpm.

This new video is available on our website and also on our YouTube channel.
