Kadant Johnson steam jet thermocompressors are designed to boost low pressure steam by accurately mixing the low pressure steam with high pressure steam. With just three basic components; nozzle, mixing section, and diffuser, Kadant Johnson thermocompressor is simple yet highly energy efficient.
Accurate Predictions of Syphon Characteristics
Dryer Drainage Systems
Thermocompressors are used to recirculate the blow-through steam in the dryer section. If the Differential Pressure Valve is open during normal operation, a substantial amount of energy is being wasted. This is an indication that the existing thermocompressor is not properly designed to handle the flow.
Kadant Johnson engineers have the knowledge and experience to design a thermocompressor that will close the loop under your paper machine operating conditions. Guaranteed.
Thermocompressors are also used to boost low-pressure steam to a higher pressure level for increased drying capacity.
Maximizing the use of low-pressure steam over a wide range of paper machine operating conditions is an important task. Kadant Johnson will supply the thermocompressor that will meet the specific requirements of your machine.
