Rotor (Shaft)

The ship’s turbocharger by contrast uses the waste energy of the engine’s exhaust stream to move the air needed. It does this by the simple method of a rotor contained in a turbine housing through which the exhaust gasses pass. On the same shaft as the rotor but in a separate chamber, a compressor rotor draws in air and forces it through a cooler where it is made denser and ultimately moved into the combustion chamber.
