well I,personally used ICEM CFD and prefer to use that as well for every problem. I also read before that it is the best Meshing software available.
but you should dig a little more to get the best answer.

For an impeller or any turbomachinery configuration in general AutoGrid5 offers structured grids of high quality.

Here's a simple, free preprocessor. Its a plugin for Sketchup ( free) to facilitate mesh generation with Tetgen ( . Supports complex geometry, multiple regions, boundaries, and refinement (both boundary and volume based).

Check it out:

Hope this helps!
