Centrifugal compressor introduction

The centrifugal compressor is a type of turbo compressor, which mainly includes a suction chamber, an impeller, a diffuser, a curve and a return device, and a volute. The gas enters the high-speed rotating impeller from the suction chamber at the centrifugal force. The mechanical energy of the impeller is converted into the internal energy, internal pressure energy and kinetic energy of the gas, which increases the temperature and flow velocity of the gas. Then the gas enters the diffuser, and the flow velocity of the gas is reduced to convert the kinetic energy into internal pressure energy, thereby achieving The purpose of increased pressure. After passing through the bend and the return, the gas flows into the next stage of the compressor and continues to compress. Finally, the high pressure gas is discharged through the volute and enters the pipe network connected to the compressor.
