Experimental Analysis Of A Two-Phase Ejector Pump Used In Vacuum Desalination System For Low Pressure Creation
Utilization of renewable energy needs no emphasis. One such form of energies is ocean energy. The importance of desalination is increasing day by day, as there is demand of potable water with increasing population, industrialization and limited natural resources for fresh water. In view of the above, a two-phase (water-air) ejector pump assisted low pressure desalination system has been analyzed. This system utilizing ocean thermal energy is of rather greater importance for potable water supply in countries like Oman without sufficient natural water source. In this paper the performance of the ejector pump is carried out to meet out the low-pressure requirement of desalination system has been analyzed experimentally.
