Pumping Liquids Using Motive Liquids
ELMRIDGE Liqui-Jet Eductors use water or other liquids under pressure as the Motive fluid, and operate on the venturi principle to pump other liquids or slurries. The high-velocity jet of liquid from the eductor nozzle entrains the suction liquid, creating a vacuum, and causing the suction liquid to be pumped. 'TLL Series' Liqui-Jet Eductors are optimized to achieve the best combination of Suction Capacity and available Suction Lift using the least amount of Motive Liquid. 'TLLM Series' Liqui-Jet Eductors and 'TLLT Series' Liqui-Jet Eductors combine higher Motive Liquid flowrates and somewhat lower Suction capacities with higher Discharge heads. Other models are available from stock with different operating characteristics. Liqui-Jet eductors are typically available from stock in PVC, CPVC, PVDF, Polypropylene, Bronze/Brass, Cast Iron/Steel, 316L Stainless Steel, and all Carbon Steel Construction. Other materials are available upon request. Threaded, Flanged, or Sanitary connections are standard.
Pumping Liquids Using Motive Steam/Compressed Gas
ELMRIDGE Gas-Jet Siphons use primarily steam as the Motive fluid, and operate on the venturi principle to pump liquids or slurries. Steam is expanded through a nozzle at high velocity, creating a vacuum, causing the suction liquid to be pumped. TGL SERIES GAS-JET SIPHONS are optimized to achieve the best combination of Suction Capacity and available Suction Lift using the least amount of Motive Steam. Gas-Jet Siphons are typically available from stock in Bronze/Brass, Cast Iron/Steel, 316L Stainless Steel, and all Carbon Steel construction. Other materials are available upon request. Threaded or Flanged connections are standard.
Gas-Jet Siphons can also be used with compressed non-condensable gases (ie. Compressed air), to pump relatively very small volumes of liquids or slurries. Contact our technical staff for details.
Eductors and Gas-Jet
Siphons are Self-Priming
and have no moving
parts!!See the ELMRIDGE 'ME Series' Liqui-Jet Mixing Eductor datasheet for pumping liquids and suspensions or slurries with equipment mounted inside the process vessel.ELMRIDGE Liqui-Jet Eductors are an efficient, economical means of pumping liquids of slurries.ELMRIDGE Gas-Jet Siphons are typically used for pumping liquids or slurries when Motive Steam is available.
