Axial Flow Pumps

An axial flow pump is a pump in which a blade row is installed inside an axial pipe for the purpose of moving an incompressible fluid through the pipe, parallel to the pump shaft. The pump will include one or more blade rows designed to increase the pressure of the fluid and move it through the pipe. The performance of the pump will be dictated by the rotational speed of the pump, the frictional losses through the blade rows, and the pressure rise achieved.
