The steam-driven jet pump (SDJP) is a device without moving parts, in which steam is used as an energy source to pump cold water from a pressure much lower than the steam pressure to a pressure higher than the steam pressure. In the previous part of this study, the mathematical modeling of the SDJP has been done, and reported. The results of the mathematical modeling of the SDJP have been compared with Cattadori’s experimental results. The comparisons show that the experimental and calculated pressure distributions are in good qualitative agreement. For the same steam inlet pressure of 8.7 MPa, the discharge pressures in the experiment and in the simulation are 9.8 MPa and 9.54 MPa, respectively. The relative difference is two percent. It can be said that the computed discharge pressure is in good agreement with the experimental result. In the current study, a parametric analysis of the SDJP has been done in terms of four independent parameters: steam inlet pressure and temperature, supply water pressure, and temperature. The output parameters are: discharge pressure, temperature, and mass flow rate. As a result of this parametric study, the operation characteristics of the SDJP have been obtained.
