Transvac has supplied thousands of Liquid Jet Pumps to the process, chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries for pumping and combining fluids. Jet Pumps, also known as Jet Ejectors or Jet Eductors use liquid as the motive force to accurately entrain, mix and dilute a secondary liquid, eliminating the need for mechanical dosing pumps and mixers.
If you have a requirement to entrain solids into a liquid, please visit our Powder & Solids Dosing page.
In operation a high velocity jet of pressurised liquid discharged from the motive nozzle produces a region of low pressure in the suction chamber that entrains the secondary liquid or fluidised solids. The two streams then thoroughly mix in the throat before the resulting mixture flows through the diverging cone to regain some pressure to overcome system discharge heads.
Single units or complete skid mounted packaged systems are available, each unit is designed to specific process conditions. Standard materials of construction include rubber-lined, PVCu, PP, PTFE, PVFD, hastelloy, titanium, stainless steel and carbon steel. Connections included flanged, screwed, plain, hosetail, bauer and quick-release etc.
