Steam Jet Syphon
Principle of Operation
Fig. 217 and Fig. 219 Steam Jet Syphons are designed for liquid pumping and mixing operations and for the handling of some solids. Steam, air or gas under pressure is used to pump, mix liquids and handle solids. Fig. 217 and Fig. 219 Steam Jet Syphons can be used for the handling of corrosive or abrasive liquids and solids because of their design simplicity, absence of moving parts, and can be made from any machineable material.
Steam Jet Syphons are especially well suited for processes where heating is required in addition to pumping since the pumping is accomplished for the cost of the heating.
Fig. 2175 Automatic Steam Jet Syphons are used to pump out sumps (pits, tanks, etc.) where liquid accumulates slowly but must be evacuated when it reaches a predetermined level. Operation of the Fig. 2175 Automatic Steam Jet Syphon requires no electrical connections or external power other than motive fluid.
