Thermocompressors boost low-pressure steam to higher pressures for reuse in multiple applications. This maximizes energy efficiency by retaining the energy in low-pressure steam while increasing its pressure by mixing in high-pressure steam. With just three basic components; a nozzle, mixing section, and diffuser, a thermocompressor is simple, yet highly energy efficient.
Recirculating applications capture blow through steam and recycle it back into the process with a minimal pressure boost. Booster applications increase the pressure of the steam for increased drying capacity.
