The characteristics of a mixed flow fan combine the high flow of an axial fan with the high pressure of a centrifugal. It provides a solution where combined high pressure and flows are a requirement. The geometry of a mixed flow fan provides a negligible stall characteristic and is ideally suited to applications such as cooling densely packed electronic equipment, or systems having high or variable resistance such as filters. Also because of the impeller geometry mixed flow fans produce less noise compared to axial fans, making them ideal for use in crew or passenger areas.
