Design of Vacuum System of Steam Jet Bursting Unit for Chestnut Shell
According to the vacuum bursting process for fresh chestnut shell and requirements for relevant vacuum system, a vacuum system of steam jet pump was designed with a start-up jet pump attached to it. Of which the waste gas from ejector was used for reheating in the bursting process to lead the vacuum bursting unit to run more reliably and stably with efficiency improved and energy consumption reduced. The rate of bursting came up to 95% in the process test.
