hOW axial flow pumps work
Axial flow pumps have a motor-driven rotor directing flow along a path parallel to the axis of the pump.
The fluid therefore travels in a relatively straight direction, from the inlet through the pump to the outlet.
Axial flow compressors consist of alternating rows of rotors and stationary blades. The blades and rotors produce pressure rise in the air as it moves through the axial flow compressor. Air then leaves the compressor under high pressure. It is understood that axial flow pumps are most often used as compressors in turbo-jet engines.
