This is the impeller for the peroxide pump for the bloodhound land speed car. why would they shape it like this with the weird inducer and the curves that blend to the radial section? not used to seeing things that don't pump compressible fluid.
It says the centrifugal screw impeller is for pumping "oil and viscous liquids" then the radial section is more like the "high head impeller" to add the pressure or maybe H2O2 acts differently at different states like a non Newtonian fluid?

Another thing to remember is these impellers are transferring thousands of horsepower through something the size of a 25hp outboard prop. Cavitation is a huge issue and these impellers run at the bleeding edge of cavitation. I also believe they run into issues with surface speed which limits their diameters.
