Vacuum Technology Steam jet compressor

Steam jet compressors type bv1 are based on proven jet pump technology and often used in evaporating, distillation, cooling, crystallization, deodorization, degassing and drying under vacuum.

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

Applications

Steam jet compressors are used in evaporating, distillation, cooling, crystallization, deodorization, degassing and drying under vacuum.

In the positive pressure range the compressed exhaust vapors are used for heating (heat pump).

Mode of operation

Their operation is based on the liquid jet emerging from the motive nozzle hitting and entraining the surrounding gases and compressing them to a higher pressure (see also “Product catalogue”).

 

Advantages

  • large vapor volumes, particularly in high vacuum ranges, are easily handled
  • low investment cost due to the relatively simple construction
  • long operational life expectancy as steam jet compressors can always be
  • constructed of a suitable corrosion resistant material
  • high operational safety and low maintenance as no moving parts are involved

In relation to these advantages, the efficiency does not play significant role, compared to other compressors. As a result of it being custom built for a duty, with correct design and application a high operating efficiency can be achieved.
