A multi-effect evaporator is a system that evaporates water or other liquids from a solution by using multiple stages of evaporation. In this process, the solution is heated in a series of vessels or effects, each operating at a lower pressure than the previous one. The vapor generated in each effect is used to heat the solution in the next effect, thereby reducing the energy required for evaporation.
The multi-effect evaporator is commonly used in industries such as food processing, chemical, and pharmaceutical to concentrate liquids and separate components. The benefits of using a multi-effect evaporator include higher energy efficiency, reduced operating costs, and lower environmental impact.
The design and operation of a multi-effect evaporator depend on various factors, such as the properties of the solution, desired concentration, and the available energy sources. The most common types of multi-effect evaporators are the forward-feed, backward-feed, and mixed-feed systems. Each system has its advantages and limitations, and the choice depends on the specific application.
Overall, the multi-effect evaporator is an effective and efficient way to concentrate liquids and separate components in a variety of industrial applications.
Design is the safest way to update values. This is due to highest specification.
High Operating Efficiency
Shell side baffles enabled a high level of operational efficiency while also allowing for manageable reductions in fluid pressure.
The Next Generation of Evaporators
A highly experienced team of mechanical, process, and thermal design experts collaborated to optimise each and every aspect of Evaporators designs for the next generation design.
Ethanol Production Industry
Multiple-effect evaporators are used for concentration and evaporation of ethanol in the ethanol production industry. They are commonly used for concentrating ethanol from fermentation broth or other sources to achieve the desired ethanol concentration for further processing into fuel ethanol or industrial ethanol.
Multiple-effect evaporators are used for concentration and desalination of seawater or brackish water in the desalination industry. They are commonly used for producing freshwater by removing water from saline water sources, such as seawater, to meet the growing demand for freshwater in water-scarce regions.
Pulp and Paper Industry
Multiple-effect evaporators are used for concentration of black liquor in the pulp and paper industry. They are commonly used for recovering and concentrating valuable chemicals from black liquor, such as lignin, hemicellulose, and inorganic compounds, for further processing or reuse.
Multiple-effect evaporators are used for concentration and evaporation of sugar beet or sugar cane juice in the sugar industry. They are commonly used for producing high-quality sugar syrups or molasses with specific sugar concentrations for further processing into refined sugar or other sugar-based products.
Multiple-effect evaporators are used for concentration and purification of pharmaceutical intermediates and active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). They are commonly used for removing solvents from pharmaceutical formulations, concentrating drug solutions, and producing dry powders or granules for further processing.
Food and Beverage Industry
Multiple-effect evaporators are used for concentration and evaporation of liquid food products, such as fruit juices, milk, coffee extracts, and flavors. They are also used for concentrating liquid sweeteners, such as glucose, fructose, and maltodextrin, in the production of confectionery, beverages, and processed foods.
