An exhaust-gas-driven air compressor used to increase the power of a reciprocating engine. The exhaust gases drive a small radial-in-flow turbine to drive a centrifugal-type air compressor which, in turn, sends the compressed air into the cylinders. It is located between the air intake and the carburetor. Also called an exhaust-driven turbocharger.
