This type of condenser is suitable where conditions permit condensation of exhaust steam by direct contact with the cooling water. It can maintain a pressure of less than 0,07 bara and can condense over 12000 kg/hr of steam. The vacuum is created in the chamber by an air ejector. The cooling water is sprayed into the chamber an the fine spray contacts the steam. The steam condenses and falls to the bottom of the condenser chamber with the injection water. The condensed steam and injection water is withdrawn using a centrifugal extraction pump. The jet condenser is generally provided with safety features to guard against flooding.
