The present invention is a system (20) for controlling various fluid flows, e.g., secondary fluid flows including cavitating fluid flows, typically developed along the shroud line and usually in or around a leading edge (21) within a flow channel ( 22) of a compressor or pump impeller (23) and inducer/impeller (24). System (20) includes a plurality of devices for controlling various flow conditions. In one embodiment, system (20) includes a diffuser device (27) for stabilizing cavitating flows, a bypass device (28) for re-injecting flow upstream, and a f...
What is claimed is: 1. A system for controlling secondary fluid flow within a flow channel, the flow channel having an inducer or impeller residing at least partially therein, the inducer or impeller having rotatable blades for drawing the flow into, or being driven by the flow in, the flow channel, the inducer or impeller rotatable about an axis, the flow channel defined by interior sidewalls of a housing, the housing at least partially surrounded by an inlet plenum, the housing including an exit, said system comprising: one or more diffuser slots havi...
