  • It attempted to leapfrog its new jet-age competitors with a two-shaft, axial-flow jet engine considerably larger and more complex than any previously envisioned.

    Lean Thinking

  • Different types of centrifugal and axial-flow fans which circulate and displace the air by means of rotating blades.

    3.1 Bricked brattice, bricked duct

  • In present-day mining, both stationary and transportable axial-flow compressors are commonly in use.

    19.1 Bicycle drive pedal drive

  • Piston, axial-flow and turbo compressors can be used to generate compressed air.

    19.1 Bicycle drive pedal drive

  • Weight: e.g. for stationary watercooled axial-flow compressor with 45 kW and 7.2 m³/min (8 bar): 860 kg e.g. for watercooIed piston compressor with

    19.1 Bicycle drive pedal drive

  • With axial-flow fans, the air is tangentially accelerated by the rotating fan blades in an axial direction due to the generation of a pressure differential (higher pressure on the inner side of the blades where expelled air is compressed, and lower pressure at the suction side of the blades where the expelled air creates a vacuum).

    3.1 Bricked brattice, bricked duct

  • For this reason, these machines are referred to as axial-flow turbines.


  • Theoretical studies of wind-powered axial-flow pumps are being carried out at the National Aeronautical Laboratory in India.

    Chapter 14

  • No use of these pumps with wind rotors is recorded, but it has been suggested that axial-flow pumps would be appropriate for high-volume pumping of sewage wastes in oxidation ponds.

  • Ambient air, supplied by a 1.1 kW axial-flow fan rated for 70 m3/min at NTP, passes on the shell side.
