stator blade

stator blade

stator blade
The fixed/variable-incidence blade attached to the axial-flow compressor stator casing. The first stage of the stators normally is variable incidence, whereas the later stages are fixed. They help direct the airflow at the optimum angle onto the rotor blades.
