Double Flow (Flow Configuration)

A compressor arrangement where the gas flow is split into equal, smaller flows, which are fed into inlet connections at opposite ends of the casing. Both gas flows are compressed as they travel toward the center of the casing, where the flows combine and then exit the casing through a common discharge connection. Most double flow rotors are constructed so the rotor is located between two radial bearings.
