This is a work horse evaporator suitable for some of the most difficult process fluids.
Developed for processing fluids which are fouling, scaling, and crystallizing, this evaporator operates with high circulation rates and high tube side velocities under suppressed boiling conditions. Since no boiling occurs in the tubes, fouling is reduced or eliminated. Common uses are for waste streams, crystallizers, viscous fluids, and inversely soluble materials.
- Full turndown of capacity can be achieved
- Suppressed boiling prevents evaporation in tubes, reducing scaling and fouling
- Operates as an evaporator/crystallizer
- Most capital intensive of evaporator options
