Exhausters & Compressors

Exhauster & Compressor Overview

Exhausters, Compressors and Jet Blowers are used in a multitude of applications and operate with a variety of motive fluid.

Exhauster & Compressor Types

Steam Jet Exhauster and Compressor
(air and gas pumps that operate on the jet principle, at moderately high vacuum, using live steam or compressed air as the motive force)
Steam Jet Vacuum Pump
(operate on the steam jet principle, utilizing the energy of steam to create vacuum and handle process gases - has lower efficiency than the Steam Jet Exhauster and Compressor)
Jet Compressor
(ejector that utilizes a jet of high-pressure gas as an operating medium to entrain a low-pressure gas, mix the two, and discharge at an intermediate pressure)
Thermocompressor
(recovering waste steam and combining it with higher pressure steam for re-use in the process)
Single Nozzle Water Jet Exhauster
(use pressurized water as the only motive force and are ideal for handling mixtures of condensable and non-condensable gases)
Multi-Nozzle Water Jet Exhauster
(used widely throughout industry to evacuate closed vessels, to prime centrifugal pumps, to pump air and gases, to handle mixtures of condensable and non-condensable gases, or to mix liquids and gases in continuous processing)
Jet Blower
(utilize the ejector-venturi principle to move large volumes of air and other gases against low back pressures - used for ventilating, exhausting, purging, and low vacuum applications)
