Model 18B4B includes a clean-out port and optional oil level and temperature measurement sensors. These features simplify maintenance procedures and minimizing the downtime that can occur as a result of low oil levels or loss of heaters. Oil is vaporized at a temperature of 392 to 482°F (200 to 250°C) in the boiler that sits at the foot of the pump. As the vapor is ejected at high velocity through jets incorporated in the interior of the pump, gas entering through the inlet is diffused in the vapor stream and transferred to the outlet. The vaporized oil then is condensed as it contacts the cooled external surface of the pump and returns to the boiler.
