Eaton Corp. is a leading manufacturer of roots type superchargers for use in commercial and aftermarket vehicles. Their products have been proudly used in vehicles, such as the economical Volkswagon FSI to the super-powered Ford GT500. Whatever your need, Eaton superchargers can address it.

Roots Type Superchargers

Eaton superchargers are all of the "roots type," a design that was patented in 1860 long before it was applied to superchargers. The roots type supercharger moves through the use of twin, rotating lobed motors. The quantity of air moved is higher than other methods of delivery, such as screw-types and centrifugal, but at the cost of higher, horsepower-robbing temperatures. The result is a supercharger that produces a significant boost at any rpm but requires an intercooler to minimise heat effects.

Gen V Superchargers

The Gen V, or fifth generation, superchargers are the modern evolution of the original superchargers offered by Eaton. They use three-lobed motors to generate boost and have been used on more than 40 models. Their use ranges from tiny 1.0-litre engines to sizeable 5.8-litre, power-hungry V-8s. Usage of these superchargers tends to increase fuel economy because of the increased performance they achieve with a small increase in fuel used.

TVS Superchargers

The TVS, or Twin Vortices Series, is the newest supercharger design from Eaton. It features a pair of four-lobed rotors to dynamically push air through the inlet. Each lobe is twisted 160 degrees, in contrast with the Gen V's three lobes at 60 degrees. This creates a quieter, smoother air flow with increased boost. The TVS also integrates noise and vibration damping.
