What is the application of jet pump?
In home applications, jet pumps, also referred to as ejector pumps, are used to move wastewater up to the sewer line. A float level sensor and switch are used to turn on the pump. Other accessories may be used such as impellers, strainers or filters, a motor or drive.
What is the pressure range of a jet pump?
20 to 120 psig
Penberthy Models GL and GH operate at pressures from 20 to 120 psig (140 to 830 kPag), the overall capacity being slightly higher when using air as the operating media.
What are the advantages of jet pump?
Jet pumps have several advantages such as:
- no moving parts or mechanical parts that wear.
- Long run life.
- Capable of high production rates.
- Adjustable to varying production rates by adjusting the power fluid injection rate.
What’s the difference between a jet pump and a centrifugal pump?
A jet pump actually is two different types of pumps combined. A jet is much better at sucking water into it that a centrifugal pump with an impeller, which is why a jet pump can lift water out of a well so much better than an end-suction centrifugal used alone.
How deep does a jet pump work?
The shallow well jet pumps draw water from one line situated in wells no deeper than a maximum of 25 feet deep. Deep well jet pumps use two lines, one for pulling the water, and one for pushing the water into the delivery system. Deep well jet pumps can pump water from wells that range from 25 to 110 feet deep.
What is the working principle of a jet pump?
The working principle of a jet pump depends on the Bernoulli theory. In a jet pump, water is pushed in a pipe with high pressure. There is a nozzle at the opening of the pipe. The shape of the nozzle is like a cone.
What kind of fluid does a jet pump use?
As a general description, Hydraulic Lift (Jet Pumps) represents pumping power fluid at high pressure and rate from surface to activate/drive a downhole pump. Power Fluid can be water or oil. With Jet Pump applications the completion needs to have minimum 3 flowing conduits:
What are the parts of a jet pump?
And a conduit for commingled fluid flow to the surface. The jet pump artificial lift system is composed of two principal parts: the surface pumping equipment and the downhole jet pump.
Can a jet pump work without a mechanical drive?
A jet pump works without a mechanical drive and therefore offers high reliability in continuous operation mode. Körting jet pumps and ejectors enjoy a reputation of being particularly straightforward and robust in their functioning as well as being low in maintenance and wear.
