axial-flow compressor

n
(General Engineering) a device for compressing a gas by accelerating it tangentially by means of bladed rotors, to increase its kinetic energy, and then diffusing it through static vanes (stators), to increase its pressure

It uses an actual gas turbine and consists of an axial compressor with 15 floors, six arranged combustion chambers to (90[degrees]) to the axial intake, a high-pressure turbine single floor (first floor), which drives the compressor and auxiliary equipment, as well as a low-pressure turbine (second floor), which drives the load.
Research of the separation modes of the operation of axial compressor stages demonstrated that for each frequency of rotor rotation there are two different characteristics, two pressure lines: one of them corresponds to non-separated flow about bladed disks (Fig.
GE will also display its new filter house technology, which is specifically designed to eliminate gas turbine shut downs for offline axial compressor water washes.
MAN Diesel & Turbo SE, Augsburg, Germany, and MTU Aero Engines GmbH, Munich, Germany, have completed their preparations for the first test run of a new MAN axial compressor at MTU's Munich test stand.
In the third edition he introduced the microturbine, and here adds information about the associated centrifugal compressor, to match that about the axial compressor.
Award: Refurbish one axial compressor rotor turning gear
Another important factor is the rotor stability towards (near) stall/surge conditions, which is directly linked to the axial compressor operating range.
Use of multiple-lane bladed disks in the axial compressor stages, especially with high rotation frequency, becomes significantly complicated due to the insufficient amount of research on the air elastic characteristics of such disks.
These compressors leverage experience gained in the demanding oil and gas industry and provide superior reliability when compared to axial compressor alternatives.

Low net work ratio engines where a higher portion of the total turbine work is consumed in the compressor tend to be both more susceptible and sensitive to axial compressor fouling.
