Reciprocating engines have served numerous types of aircraft since the first Wright Brothers flight. A complex collection of parts, reciprocating engines rely on the convergence of pistons and cylinders for the adequate combustion of fuel and air mixtures employed to drive propeller-powered aircraft. As fuel and air mixtures require combustion at certain temperatures, as well as the fact that an overabundance of heat can be detrimental to systems, it is important that there are components in place to monitor temperatures. These often come in the form of aircraft cylinder and exhaust gas temperature indicating systems, both of which monitor temperature conditions for the means of safety and performance.

A turbosupercharger is a system that is installed on an aircraft in order to supply compressed air for the carburetor or engine control unit. The installed turbosupercharger and components are externally driven, powered by a turbine wheel assembly that is fed exhaust gases from the engine to conduct operations. For this reason, such devices have donned the title “superchargers”, though superchargers specifically refer to those that are able to produce a manifold pressure that is above 30” Hg. A typical turbosupercharger contains a compressor, turbine, and bearing assembly, all of which may be similar to that of a turbocharger. In this blog, we will discuss the various parts of the turbosupercharger and their functionality, as well as the difference between turbosuperchargers and standard turbochargers.
