Vacuum Technology Steam jet heaters

Steam jet heaters are based on proven jet pump technology and often used to heat liquids by direct injection of heating steam.

Our jet systems are reliable and require low maintenance.

Applications

Steam jet heaters are used to heat liquids by direct injection of heating steam.  The heating steam condensate mixes with the liquid being heated.

Steam jet heaters are used to prepare hot water for different purposes, such as barrel rinsing water in malting plants, warm water for pickling, dyeing, and greases in tanneries, for washrooms and bathrooms and for heating sewage sludge, boiling lye etc.

Mode of operation

There are generally two different construction forms, according to the application:

  • Steam jet heaters for vessels (aw1)
  • Steam jet heaters for installation in pipes and for passage or circulation heating systems: 
    • Type “L” (aw4)
    • Type “H” (aw5)
    • “System Ciba-Geigy” (aw6)
 

Advantages

  • Low noise operation
  • Simple construction
  • No moving parts
  • Low maintenance
  • High reliability
  • Adjustable heating capacity

Steam jet heaters type aw1 are based on proven jet pump technology and often used to heat all kinds of liquids in vessels.

Our jet systems are reliable and require low maintenance.

Applications

steam-jet-heaters-aw1-01

Steam jet heaters are used to heat all kinds of liquids in vessels. Heating is achieved by means of direct condensation of steam. 

The steam condensate mixes with the liquid.

Mode of operation

The steam jet emerging from the motive nozzle accelerates the liquid present in its vicinity and in the mixing nozzle and condenses.

In this way a controlled flow is produced. Furthermore, the whole content of the vessel is set in motion and the heat transferred to the liquid is evenly distributed throughout the vessel.

 

Advantages

  • No moving parts
  • Maintenance-free
  • Can be installed in virtually all situations
  • Quickly and easily put into operation
  • Almost unlimited life, when a suitable material of construction is chosen
  • Can be manufactured from various materials of construction
  • Low acquisition costs

Steam jet heaters type "L" (aw4) are based on proven jet pump technology and often used in passage and circulation heating systems.

Our jet systems are reliable and require low maintenance.

Applications

Steam jet heaters AW4

Steam jet heaters are used to heat liquids by means of direct condensation of steam. The steam condensate mixes with the liquid.

Steam jet heaters type “L” are used in passage and circulation heating systems. The achievable heating per pass amounts to max. 90 K.

Mode of operation

The condensation nozzle is inside the steam jet heater. It is provided with bore holes so that the steam can pass directly into the liquid to be heated and condenses. This takes place at the point of highest velocity of the liquid, its lowest pressure and its greatest turbulence.

The downstream arranged diffuser reduces the velocity of the liquid again at the same time increasing its pressure.

 

Advantages

  • No moving parts
  • Maintenance-free
  • Can be installed in virtually all situations
  • Quickly and easily put into operation
  • Almost unlimited life, when a suitable material of construction is chosen
  • Can be manufactured from various materials of construction
  • Low acquisition costs

Steam jet heaters type “H” (aw5) are based on proven jet pump technology and often used in passage and circulation heating systems.

Our jet systems are reliable and require low maintenance.

Applications

Steam jet heaters AW5

Steam jet heaters type “H” are used in passage and circulation heating systems:

  • Heating to max. 30 K per pass
  • Steam flow control range up to max. 5:1

Mode of operation

The condensation nozzle is inside the steam jet heater. It is provided with bore holes so that the steam can pass directly into the liquid to be heated and condenses. This takes place at the point of highest velocity of the liquid, its lowest pressure and its greatest turbulence.

The downstream arranged diffuser reduces the velocity of the liquid again at the same time increasing its pressure.

  • No moving parts
  • Maintenance-free
  • Can be installed in virtually all situations
  • Quickly and easily put into operation
  • Almost unlimited life, when a suitable material of construction is chosen
  • Can be manufactured from various materials of construction
  • Low acquisition costs

Steam jet heaters type "System Ciba-Geigy" (aw6) are based on proven jet pump technology and often used in passage and circulation heating systems.

Our jet systems are reliable and require low maintenance.

Applications

steam-jet-heaters-aw6-01

Steam jet heaters are used to directly heat a liquid with heating steam.

Steam jet heaters, “System Ciba-Geigy”, are used in passage and circulating heating systems and for batch processes.

Mode of operation
