Many hydrocarbon separation applications can be improved by Vacuum Distillation Unit (VDU). The relative volatility of many hydrocarbon binary pairs of components improves with lower pressure, improving the separation efficiency. At lower pressures hydrocarbon components vaporize at lower temperatures, reducing the degradation of products by condensation or polymerization. Steam ejector is used to maintain the operating pressure (vacuum condition) in the VDU. These vacuum systems normally provide reliable and consistent operation. However, process conditions, supplied utilities, corrosion, erosion and fouling all have an impact on ejector system performance. This study will explain on fundamental working principle of ejector in vacuum system. Besides, there are also guidelines on troubleshooting practices in the ejector system. The purpose of this project is to study the efficiency of steam ejector in VDU. This study will cover all the potential aspects that could be the major effects to the steam ejector efficiency in vacuum system. It could be possible to make use the project as the fundamental of crude vacuum tower overhead ejector systems troubleshooting in order to improve performance and product quality in oil refining process.
