The characteristic of the flow through a set of rotating orifices for particular conditions is quantified in terms of a discharge coefficient which is the ratio of the actual flow divided by the flow for the ideal case. In the present study the pre-swirl was created by having Inlet Guide Vanes (IGVs) at the inlet of the rotating orifices. Pre-swirl changes the angle of attack to the orifice, and thus affects the incidence angle and the discharge coefficient. Pre-swirl improves the discharge coefficient in inclined orifices since it allows the incidence angle to reach zero at a much lower rotational speed than when there is no pre-swirl.
