This paper deals with the general characteristics of the air ejector. Except for a few published results on the performance of standard units, information on the subject is very scarce, and the experimental lines followed in the investigation have been arranged to provide a systematic examination of the effect of the various dimensions on the stability and efficiency of operation. Diffuser losses are deduced by analysis from the tests, and the main questions arising in the combining of the operating and induced fluids are discussed. Using a glass-sided diffuser, several aspects of the fluid action are illustrated by the wave formation set up at the nozzle outlet.
