Mainly there are nozzle and venturi in the jet pump set up. The nozzle is filled with the water before the operation. The performance of the jet pump starts with the flow of filled water from the nozzle to the venturi to upwards. This upward flow of water creates a vacuum at the bottom side of the venturi and results in the suction of the liquid present in the source.

Please explain which 2 fluids they are using and which one providing the momentum to other as far as I can see there is only 1 fluid in the jet pump (water).

Velocity is directly prop to under root of delta P (pressure drop).

So, in my opinion, the right answer is a steam jet ejector.

This a vacuum jet ejector & works under principle.

Velocity is directly prop to under root of delta P (pressure drop).

Steam is used to provide momentum and vapour is second fluid you can see this in vaccum distillation column.

Jet pumps generally have 2 types of fluid for work. Common jet pumps are steam jet ejector works on vacuum.

I used Jet pump but not use 2 fluid for each others. Please explain.

I think the Steam jet ejector is the correct answer.

Steam or air is used as driving force in jet pumps.
