Arrangement

The single stage can be arranged, as has been discussed in the previous paragraphs, in the overhung style. Figure 5-4 shows a schematic of the compressor. Note that the flow enters axially and exits in a tangential direction. For a comprehensive discussion, it should be mentioned that the overhung style is, on very rare occasions, constructed in the multistage form, usually overhanging no more than two impellers. The overhung compressor is generally more competitively priced than the between-bearing design. Careful application must be made because the overhung impeller configuration is more sensitive to unbalance than the between-bearing design. If impeller fouling is anticipated, this design may not be acceptable.
