Abstract

Mixed flow pumps are primarily axial flow pumps, but they impart some degree of radial and swirling momentum to the pump fluid as it passes through the rotor section. They are popular for pumping water in tight spaces, so are used for residential wells, municipal water works, industrial applications, and even for powering small water craft.
