The system of claim 1 wherein the rotor top further comprises a lower face [which mates with a portion of the upper fluid restricting surface of rotor plate] and the rotor top bearing surface to form an angle with the upper fluid restricting face of the rotot plate.

Is my understanding right??

"the rotor top comprises a lower face and the rotor top bearing surface;
the rotor top forms an angle with the upper fluid restricting face;"

Thank you!

    The relative clause extends to the end of the sentence. The rotor top comprises only one thing (in this sentence) and that is a lower face. The relative clause describes the lower face.

    [which mates with a portion of the upper fluid restricting surface of rotor plate and the rotor top bearing surface to form an angle with the upper fluid restricting face of the rotot plate.]


    The lower face 'mates with' [=fits together with] the fluid restricting surface and the rotor top bearing surface.

    When it does this it forms an angle with the upper fluid restricting face of the rotor plate.
