Comparison: Differences between Axial and Centrifugal Compressor
Compared to an axial compressor, centrifugal flow compressors are less complicated to design and manufacture. It can also effectively manage significantly less gas flow and frequently generates greater differential pressure for effective combustion with a single compression stage, leading to more efficient combustion.
On the other hand, Axial flow compressors are extremely difficult to repair and maintain. In addition, it is far more expensive than centrifugal compressors are. On the other hand, as compared to centrifugal compressors, axial compressors function more efficiently. Axial compressors are preferred in cases where higher gas flow and pressure are required
