EBNER manufactures steam ejectors and steam jet pumps which find application in their own plants and in plants of other plant constructors.
Steam ejectors suck in steam or vapour at low pressure and compress it to a higher pressure. They mainly consist of three parts:
- the power nozzle
- a head piece
- the venturi-shaped diffusor
In general steam serves as propellant. But other gases may be used as well.
Any steam ejector may overcome only a certain pressure drop.
Steam jet pumps
In case of larger pressure differences several steam ejectors are connected in series (steam jet pumps) in which case condensers are installed between the stages in order to condensate the power steam of the steam ejector.
