A turbo air compressor features a turbine and a compressor that are connected by a shaft. The energy for the turbo core compressor is supplied by a exhaust gas driven turbine.
Turbo Compressor Design and Function
The air compressor turbo consists of three essential components to make it function. These components are a diffuser, a compressor wheel and housing. Air is drawn into the compressor axially with the rotational speed of the wheel and is then accelerated to a high velocity before being expelled in the radial direction. The function of the diffuser is to slow the speed of the high velocity air so that both the temperature and pressure increase. The diffuser is created by the backplate of the used compressor and part of the volute housing. This in turn collects the air and further reduces the speed before the air reaches the exit of the turbo compressor.
The Operating Characteristics of Turbo Compressors
The operating behaviour of the oil turbo compressor is defined by special maps that show the relationship between the pressure ratio and the mass or volume flow rate. The section of the map that cannot be used relates to centrifugal compressors and is limited to the choke and surge lines as well as the maximum possible compressor speed. All of these are factors one must consider when looking for construction machinery for sale such as used turbo compressors.
Leading turbo compressor manufacturers include MAN, POWERSTROKE, WICKED WHEEL, GARRETT, TOYOTA and FORD.
