Vacuum Technology for Petrochemicals

GEA’s jet vacuum pumps are the primary type of vacuum pump used by the petrochemicals and chemicals industries. They demonstrate high application versatility, energy efficiency and safe operation, and can achieve suction pressures down to 0.01 mbar and suction flows of 10 m³/h to 2,000,000 m³/h.

Multi-stage Vacuum Generation

GEA's jet vacuum pumps can be manufactured in a wide range of materials, including porcelain, graphite and glass, to meet process engineering requirements. Our portfolio of jet pumps can be used in many different processes for conveying, recompressing and mixing gases, vapors and liquids and for evacuating tanks by drawing off gases, vapors and solvents.

Applications of GEA technology include, for example, the production of chemicals that are used for further processing in the plastics and fiber industries, such as TDI (toluene diisocyanate) and MDI (methylene diphenyl diisocyanate) used for polyurethane production, and caprolactam, the precursor of Nylon 6
