Buffalo Ejector - Steam Operated Liquid Elevator

Buffalo Ejector

 

 

The Buffalo Ejector is extensively used for raising water or other liquids by means of steam.

The operating steam pressure may be between 20 and 200 p.s.i. (1.3 and 14 bar), but best results are not necessarily obtained by the use of the highest available steam pressure, and, according to conditions, performance may be improved by throttling the steam supply.

Except at extreme steam pressures, an elevation of 1 foot for each 1½ p.s.i. of steam pressure may be obtained.

Special applications include heating and agitating liquids, also providing a low-pressure jet of warm water for wash-down purposes.

The Buffalo Ejector will also handle fine solids in suspension.
