Steam ejector vacuum systems are the most common means of creating and maintaining a vacuum in the process units of oil and gas processing facilities. This is due to the simplicity of the structure, the lack of moving parts and low repair and maintenance costs. On the other hand, the main disadvantages of steam ejector pumps (SEPs) are the large component dimensions, noisy operation and high consumption of high-pressure steam and recycled cooling water. The total consumption of energy resources depends on: The parameters of water vapor and circulating water The design of individual elements of the vacuum-creating system (VCS). Also, the operation of the VCS is influenced by the conne
