Liquid Jet Compressor

Using a liquid as motive medium, liquid jet compressors compress gases or vapors with large pressure differences and simultaneous intensive mixing of the liquid itself. They operate on the ejector principle.

Advantages
  • Simple and reliable
  • Corrosion and erosion resistant
  • Automatic control
  • Easy to install
  • Low cost
  • Wide range of materials such as steal, stainless steal, cast iron, bronze, Teflon and graphite
Applications

Liquid jet compressors have numerous applications in many industries and processes such as

  • Foodstuffs industry
  • Treating drinking water
  • Chemical industry
  • Biological sewage treatment
  • Flotation
