There is no such thing as a perfect invention: we can always do better, much cheaper, more efficient, and much more environmentally friendly. Let’s take for example the internal combustion engine. You may think it’s remarkable that the machine is powered by a liquid that can take you down the highway or speed across the sky many times faster than probably you might otherwise travel.
But it is always possible to build an engine that will go further, faster, and use less fuel. One of the many ways to improve an engine is to use of a turbocharger on a pair of fans that harness the power of exhaust waste from the back of the engine to put more air in front, delivering more “oomph” of which would otherwise be obtained. We’ve all heard of turbos, but just how do they work? Let’s take a closer look!
Sure, you may have a general idea of how it works turbocharger, but exactly what turbo do all that tasty incentive to boost your engine to new heights?
This animation will take you through the whole process right from the moment when air enter the turbo to the creation of the power we all know it and love it.
Although it can be argued that nitrous or supercharges are the best way to raise energy but turbo will always prevail as one of the best.
