The C38R is the most powerful Supercharger of the Rotrex standard product range. Countless number of large scale applications can be boosted by this very efficient and silent unit which supplies air flow up to 0.84 kg/s. Additionally the C38R shares identical packaging and bracketry dimensioning with the C38 range, thereby allowing direct retro-fit for power upgrades of existing kits and installations. Impeller speeds of up to 90,000 rpm are achieved through the patented hi-speed planetary traction drive which combines small size with exceptional performance and durability. The very low noise and vibration characteristic as well as the high efficiency of these superchargers set the industry standard for what is achievable.
The C38R range is designed for high performance four stroke gasoline engines with a supercharged output 720kW. For extreme applications where one supercharger is not sufficient, it is possible to use two units to support large amounts of power in a twin-charger configuration. The C38R is also ideal for the supply large amounts of clean pressurized air for other applications such as industrial systems, fuel cell power plants etc.
The C38R further pushes the limits of groundbreaking compactness thus maintaining a very flexible supercharger installation particularly on engine applications with tight space and where weight and size are essential.
The supercharger can be ordered with the compressor housing mounted in one of six different outlet positions with 60 degree intervals to allow easy adoption to any application. For specific outlet positions please refer to dimension drawing found in this document.
