An analytical model is developed to extend the single-phase model to dual-phase applications. The introduced dual-phase model helps in predicting ejector performance, particularly pressure recovery and efficiency, to entrained fluids of a liquid/gas mixture. The empirical loss coefficients are replaced by analytical equations accounting for the geometry of and flow conditions within the individual ejector components. In order to verify the present analytical model predictions, liquid ejector performance is studied experimentally when the entrained fluid is both a single-phase liquid (water) and a dual-phase liquid/gas mixture (water/air). The results show consistently better agreement with the experimental data than those delivered by existing models, reducing the root mean square error of the pressure recovery prediction to less than 10% of its former value.
