Vacuum Technology Liquid jet solids pump

Liquid jet solids pumps are based on proven jet pump technology and often used to convey types of solids.

Our steam jet systems have a simple design, they are reliable and require low maintenance.

Applications

Liquid jet solids pumps are used to convey sand, gravel, salt, activated carbon, ion exchange resin, and other types of solids; to fill and empty reactors with reactor mass or marble gravel in decarbonizing and deacidifying plants of water and effluent treatment plants; to add precipitating agents in dirty water and effluent water treatment.

Mode of operation

Liquid jet solids pumps are jet pumps which, with the help of a motive liquid, can convey flowable granulate material. The material to be conveyed flows through a hopper into the jet pump.

The motive liquid, in most cases water, emerges from the motive nozzle at a high velocity into the mixing chamber of the pump, entraining the material present in the mixing chamber. Depending upon the type of material to be conveyed, rinse water must be sprayed into the hopper in order to maintain a constant flow. The mixture of liquid and material can be conveyed directly to the point of application, by pipe or hose.

Liquid jet solids pumps can also be supplied as complete units with hoper and rinse water connection. Stationary units as well as mobile units are available.
