radial compressor

radial compressor
A compressor in which the airflow is radial. Air is taken to the center of the impeller and slung outward by the centrifugal force. The same as a centrifugal compressor.

In accordance with their operating principles and working processes, radial compressors have some unavoidable disadvantages: Namely, a delayed response characteristic resulting from the moment of inertia of the rotating masses and a working range limited by the choking line, the surge line and the maximum permissible rotational speed of the impeller.
