Recirculation LJC Ejector Package
In situations where a high-pressure motive liquid stream is not readily available a Transvac Liquid Ejector Recirculation Package is the solution.
Rotating gas compressors are often unreliable and fail because of sour and/or acidic process gas or a build-up of contaminants, such as waxes, solids or black powder. However, it is important to note that a Liquid Ejector system pump is reliable because it is just pumping liquid with no gas passing through it. The gas compressor is a static Ejector which can be constructed from materials to suit the process gas composition.
Transvac’s experience is that maintenance teams are not concerned about routine pump maintenance, but they do have issues with the specialist maintenance costs and unreliability of mechanical compressors.
Contact between the liquid and gas streams within the Ejector scrubs the process gas and removes some contaminants as well as cooling it.
