single-stage compressor

single-stage compressor

[′siŋ·gəl ¦stāj kəm′pres·ər]
(mechanical engineering)
A machine that effects overall compression of a gas or vapor from suction to discharge conditions without any sequential multiplicity of elements, such as cylinders or rotors.

single-stage compressor

A centrifugal compressor having a single impeller wheel, with vanes either on one or on both sides of the wheel. Also, an axial-flow compressor with one row of rotor blades and one row of stator blades. Axial-flow compressors are normally multistage. A single-stage compressor achieves the overall pressure ratio in one single operation (e.g., by a centrifugal impeller or a single row of axial blades). See centrifugal compressor.
