axial-flow fan

axial-flow fan
1. One of the following types of fans: vaneaxial, tubeaxial, or propeller. Such fans impart energy to the air by giving it a twisting motion. They are specified by blade shape, ratio of hub-to-tip diameter, pitch of the blades, and number of blades. Guide vanes may be added to straighten the flow and increase the efficiency.
