In development of an axial-flow boiler supercharger, a test program on the compressor inlet was carried out. Tests were run using a test compressor aerodynamically identical to the first three stages of the supercharger compressor. Prototype compressor inlet was compared to an axial inlet, and also to several modified inlets. While the prototype inlet showed considerably more distortion ahead of the inlet guide vanes than the axial inlet, the inlet guide vanes removed most of the distortion. As a result, overall performance of all inlet configurations was essentially the same.
