Capturing high velocity diesel pump priming port exhaust

Capturing high velocity diesel pump priming port exhaust

I have been asked to capture the exhaust from a diesel power water pump. The pump uses the diesel exhaust in a venturi to draw water up to prime the pump. It is only a short duration, but the application is indoor. I want to capture the exhaust but not the water that immediately follows it. This video shows an outdoor pump, but you can see what I am talking about. Please forward to 10 minutes and 12 seconds and see the exhaust.

any ideas?

Can you put a miniature cyclone in the line to separate the water from the exhaust , then send each to their respective destinations ?

You are judged not by what you know, but by what you can do.

Buy an electric pump.
