Improve Efficiency with Better Evaporation and Drying Equipment

By Joy LePree |

For every application, there’s an evaporator or dryer that can boost performance  In today’s economy, chemical processors must deliver high product quality and uniformity while maintaining high yield and low production costs in order to be successful. For this reason, they depend upon efficient continuous evaporation and drying processes for the production of high-quality products with specific product parameters. There’s a plethora of evaporation and drying equipment engineered to meet the needs of the chemical process industries (CPI), in the most cost-effective, process-efficient and energy-saving way possible.   Advances in evaporation The ideal choice of evaporation technology depends upon factors such as viscosity and the thermal characteristics of the product, the required output rate and the available energy supply, according to Niels Knudsen, sales manager, Flow Food and Beverage, SPX Flow Technology (Søborg, Denmark; www.spx.com). Evaporation techniques include single pass or circulation, single or multiple effect and thermal or mechanical vapor recompression, he says. The proper evaporator must be selected for the product being processed, as well as for the specific challenges associated with that product or…
