Experimental Analysis of Steam Operated Vacuum Pump
Pages : 32-35
Based on the law of Condensation the vacuum is generated by condensing the steam inside the pressure vessel. The air inside the pressure vessel is removed by injecting the high pressure steam inside the pressure vessel. The pressure is then allowed to cool by forcing the water around the pressure vessel. The vacuum is generated when steam is converted into water. The vacuum is utilized to generate Supersonic velocity in the nozzle based on Bernoulli’s principle.
Key Words: Steam, Supersonic, Bernoulli’s Principle, Vacuum pump, Wind Tunnel.
