Axial-Flow Pumps and Related Methods
Inventors: Ahsan Choudhuri
Patent No. 9,909,588

This patent involves pumps that are capable of high exit flow rates of up to 25 milliliters per second and high pressure heads of up to 5 meters, at speeds up to 50,000 RPM. The pump can be either motor driven or turbine driven, providing many possible uses. This invention is aimed at miniature propulsion systems, but the pumps have uses in many industries unrelated to propulsion.

Miniature (mesoscale) axial-flow pumps including an inlet guide, a stator spaced apart from the inlet guide, and a rotor rotatably disposed between the inlet guide and the stator.
