The first steam ejectors were developed in the early 1900’s. They were initially used to eject air from condensing plants on turbine systems.
Through the acquisition of Hick Hargreaves in 2001 Edwards have been instrumental in the development of steam ejectors from the original crude single stage devices to the highly efficient multi stage systems of today.
Applications for steam ejectors increased throughout the 20th century and today Edwards has with many years of experience in the design, manufacture and supply of steam ejector systems to many demanding applications in the process industries.
The Custom Engineered Products group which has evolved from Hick, Hargreaves, combines many years of experience in process and mechanical design with project management skills for the supply of individual items of plant or the execution of complete projects including installation and commissioning.
