Eductors & Syphons

Water Jet Eductors Overview

Complete line of water jet eductors and jet syphons

Water Jet Eductors utilize a high-pressure fluid to handle a low-pressure fluid and discharge the mixture against an intermediate pressure using the venturi principle. Ejectors of this type are used throughout industry for pumping and mixing operations. Water Jet Eductors consist of a converging-diverging nozzle, a body, and a diffuser.

Water Jet Eductor Types

Water Jet Eductor

(designed for liquid pumping and mixing operations and can handle some solids in the liquid stream)

Automatic Water Jet Eductor

(used to pump out sumps (pits, tanks, etc.); specially designed snap valve allows for automatic operation without electrical connections or external power)

Condensate and Mixing Eductor

(designed to mix two liquids intimately in various proportions in operations where the pressure liquid is the greater proportion of the mixture)

Tank Mixing Eductor

(used to agitate liquid and to mix two or more liquids intimately within a tank or other vessel without the use of baffles or moving parts inside the tank)

Hopper-Equipped Eductor

(made for handling slurries or dry solids in granular form)

Annular Multi-Nozzle Eductor

(have high air handling capacities and are particularly well suited for priming large pumps such as dredging pumps which frequently encounter air pockets)

Water Jet Sand and Mud Eductor

(ideal for pumping out wells, pits, tanks, or sumps where there is an accumulation of sand, mud, or other material not easily handled by the standard eductor)

Steam Jet Syphons Overview

Steam Jet Syphon selection

Steam Jet Syphons are similar to the Water Jet Eductor however, they use steam as the motive force to pump, mix liquids, and handle solids. In operation, steam under pressure discharges at high velocity through a nozzle and entrains the suction liquid or slurry. Both the Water Jet Eductor and the Steam Jet Syphon can be used for the handling of corrosive or abrasive liquids and solids. Their design simplicity, the absence of moving parts, and because they can be made from any machineable material, make them ideal for a multitude of applications.

Steam Jet Syphon Types

Steam Jet Syphon

(Steam, air or gas under pressure is used to pump, mix liquids and handle solids)

Automatic Steam Jet Syphon

(used to pump out sumps (pits, tanks, etc.); specially designed snap valve allows for automatic operation without electrical connections or external power)

Jet Syphon

(designed for use where solids or semi-solids must be passed through the pump)

Sand and Mud Syphon

(designed for pumping out pits and receptacles where there is an accumulation of sand, mud, sludge, or similar materials)
