How does an ejector create a vacuum?
Steam jet Ejectors are based on the ejector-venturi principal and operate by passing motive steam through an expanding nozzle. The nozzle provides controlled expansion of the motive steam to convert pressure in to velocity which creates a vacuum with in the body chamber to draw in and entrain gases or vapours.
All ejectors operate on a common principle. The single stage ejec- tor, in its simplest form, consists of an actuating nozzle, suction chamber and a diffuser. The purpose of the ejector is to transport and compress a weight of induced fluid from the suction pressure to the exit pressure.
- A sewage ejector pump, also called a pump up ejector system, is used when a bathroom, laundry room or any other type of plumbing fixture is located below the grade of the main sewer or septic line. Sewage ejector pumps are meant to sit in a sump basin that is cut and dug into the ground below grade.
- The Venturi effect is the reduction in fluid pressure that results when a fluid flows through a constricted section (or choke) of a pipe. The Venturi effect is named after Giovanni Battista Venturi (1746–1822), an Italian physicist.
- That creates a low pressure inside the eductor which will cause air molecules to flow into the eductor via the suction inlet. Why should an accelerated flow diminish pressure next to the flow? Yet, this device works. First , I would throw some light on venturi effect with water.
