The Who, What & Why on Prochargers

“ProCharger” is actually the name of a company in the United States that sells and manufactures a extensive range of supercharging systems for different power applications according to Robin Classen.

Firstly, let’s have a little background lesson on a Turbocharger.

They are devices that send more air into an engine which then translates into more power for the vehicle.

Turbochargers are turbine-driven, forced-induction devices that increase an engine’s ability and power output by forcing more air into the combustion chamber.

More power is given to the vehicle because the compressor is able to force more air and fuel into the combustion chamber.

The density of intake fuel is improved as well. Power for a supercharger is usually in the forms of either a belt, gear or shaft or a chain connected to an engine’s crankshaft.

Now, just like your standard supercharger, ProChargers are belt-driven but take the shape of a turbo in the engine bay. Reason being it is to lessen the amount of piping and immensely reduces the amount of heat transfer with unbeatable air-to-air cooling benefits as well.

ProChargers are commonly found at the front of the engine positioned parallel to that of a power steering pump or alternator. Traditional superchargers alternatively are located on to of the engine between either of the manifolds.

Each have their own benefits, but both are dependant on application and use.
