Cross-Flow Fan

« Back to Glossary Index

The Cross-Flow Fan is usually long in relation to the diameter, so the flow approximately remains two-dimensional away from the ends. It uses an impeller with forward curved blades, placed in a housing consisting of a rear wall and vortex wall. Unlike radial machines, the main flow moves transversely across the impeller, passing the blading twice.
