Abstract:

An experimental investigation was conducted to determine the characteristics of ejector systems using very large cylindrical diffusers. Tests were conducted with nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and helium gases in systems having diffuser cross section to nozzle throat area ratios from 950 to 15,300. Limited effects of ejector nozzle configuration, diffuser length, system size, and diffuser wall cooling were investigated. Excellent system performance was obtained, with test cell altitudes of 250,000 ft being produced by the pumping action of the ejector at nozzle total pressures of approximately 100 to 200 psia.
