Main Question or Discussion Point

I have to design a compressor that can compress air from atmosheric pressure to 4 atmosphere, with a mass flow rate of 50898.62 kg/h of compressed air.

I am stuck between the choice of two types of compressors. They are:

  • Centrifugal Compressor
  • Axial Compressor

I have looked at their descriptions but cannot decide which one is the better one to design.

Would someone please guide me through this.

regards

First things first: Can you name some pros and cons of each design?
