Process equipment / Ejectors

Ejectors

Körting Ejectors can be utilised in numerous application fields. Each ejector is designed thereby individually for its application field and adjusted optimally to its respective utilisation.

A jet ejector requires no mechanical drive and has no moving parts. This basic principle applies to every jet ejector in different models and ranges of application.

Maintenance is kept to a minimum, they are robust, reliable, relatively insensitive to dirt, always ready for use, and self-priming and therefore especially suitable for all operating conditions. Further advantages of ejectors are their simple installation, low investment costs and the use of materials which are resistant to corrosion and erosion.

Steam jet heaters

Hot water is an indispensable medium in industrial processes. Washing, heating, sterilizing and rinsing are possible applications, and the list can be extended at will. There are various ways of producing hot water. The condensation of steam is probably the most commonly used method of producing hot water. Mixing water with steam makes this process extremely flexible; depending on the mixing ratio the temperature of the water can be selected within a wide range. Although water and steam represent the same chemical substance in different states of aggregation, their uncontrolled confrontation tends to be rather hostile. Condensation shocks, vibrations, noise and material destruction are known consequences of uncontrolled condensation.

In order to ameliorate or even avoid such phenomena, a variety of devices has been developed. Correct choice of suitable equipment depends, on the one hand, upon the process for which it is to be used, and on the other hand upon the specific operating conditions.

Two main groups of heaters: Self-priming and with water supply

Accordingly, the difference between these two kinds of heaters is to be found not in the actual heaters themselves but above in the mode of integration in the overall system. Whereas the heaters of the first group draw in the water to be heated themselves according to the principal of the jet pump, the devices belonging to the second group require a supply unit for the water, such as a centrifugal pump or gravity feed.

Self-priming heaters

  • Fitted steam jet heater
  • Steam jet circulation heater

Heaters with water supply

  • Steam jet flow heater
  • Steam jet heater ORK

Liquid jet ejectors

Liquid jet ejectors are used as : ventilators, vacuum ejectors, liquid- and solid ejectors.

Liquid jet ventilators using a liquid as motive medium suck off large gas volume flows. This is possible because only slight pressure differences must be overcome. Simultaneously dust, deposits and vapors can be washed out of the suction flow.

Chemical industry : to wash out dust deposits and vapors.

Sugar industry : to heat up washing water, to rinse out dust from sugar beet chips.

General : as component parts of plants for dedusting, absorption and gas cooling with jet scrubbers and venturi scrubbers

Liquid jet vacuum ejectors suck off gases and/or vapors from a process. The lowest possible suction pressure in the reactor is only limited by the vapor pressure of the motive liquid. It is possible to compress to atmospheric or even higher pressure.

Shipbuilding : evacuation of suction pipelines of non-self-priming centrifugal pumps

Sea-water evaporators :generation of the necessary vacuum

Dredgers : de-gassing of the dredged materials (removal of natural gas)

Power plants : evacuation of turbine condensers

Chemical industry : evacuation of condensers and removal of air-/product vapor mixes in vacuum processes.

Liquid jet liquid ejector. A liquid motive medium is used to suck off another liquid and to convey it to a higher pressure. High turbulence achieves a homogeneous intermixture of both flows. Classical application in the shipbuilding industry (bilge of ballast tanks)

Ship-building : pumping and cargo out bilges, chain lockers, holds ballast tanks

Water treatment : dilution of lyes and acids

Foodstuffs- and chemical industry : pumping and mixing of diverse liquids

Synthetic fertilizer plants (UREA plants) : pumping “carbamate”-solution back to the Urea-reactor

Hydroelectric power stations : emergency drainage of pump pits

Sea-water evaporators : conveying concentrated sea-water

Liquid jet solids ejector. A liquid motive medium is used to convey solids. The solids are either introduced via a funnel or they can also be sucked in. A carrier medium e.g. water or air is mixed in to improve the delivery effect.

Water treatment : conveying filter materials such as activated carbon, gravel, exchange resins ; conveying lignite dust in activated sludge.

Ship-building : pumping water/solids mixtures out of the deep ; laying of marine cables ; conveying ash/air mixtures from incineration systems on passenger ships.
