- HB-Line uses eductors to pump the contents of the Recycle Tanks and the Filtrate Tanks to H Canyon. The eductors serve the functions of both pumping and diluting product bearing solutions. Dilution must be reliably controlled because of criticality concerns with H Canyon Tanks. Therefore, it is important to measure the performance characteristics of the eductors. An eductor (Schutte and Koerting, model 264, size 1/2 inch, 316 stainless steel) identical to the eductors in HB Line Phase II was tested in the Thermal Fluids Laboratory (TFL) over the appropriate ranges of eductant pressure, suction head and discharge head. After testing, the eductor was engraved with the following equipment number, HBL-221000-HV-NPCP-EDR-NT-31/32. The performance data were successfully correlated using two equations, one for the flowrate of eductant and the other for the flowrate of suction fluid. Flowrates were within 10 percent of the flowrates published by the vendor.
