In an evaporator handling an aqueous salt solution, the overall coefficient U (kW/ m2 deg K) is .. these. Figure shows the flow and plate arrangement of an APV falling-film plate .. MINTON, P. E.: Handbook of Evaporation Technology. This Handbook describes the many types of evaporators and operating options manufacturing capabilities of companies within the APV Group. oncentration. This handbook describes the paraflow and its operating principle, The paraflow is the original plate type heat exchanger designed by APV to provide.

Alternative configurations of spray dryers showing A tall form type and B conical As an alternative, the two-fluid nozzle with external mixing is used for a variety of abrasive materials.

This system has Fristam pumps. This would make selection of a fluid bed dryer completely unrealistic and probably would suggest a conventional rotary dryer for the application.

This tangential inlet, together with the action of the rotor, causes a turbulent hhandbook gas flow in the drying chamber. The complete system is mounted on two skids with interconnecting piping and power cables for Evaporator and Feed-Product Tank. TL stainless steel welded tubes 8 ft. Air exiting from the bag collector 10 passes through the exhaust fan 12 and is clean enough for use in a heat recovery system.

If the air flow is reduced, either by choice or due to a problem, the production rate of the dryer will also be reduced. In general, forced circulation evaporators are required when the fouling characteristics of a liquid will cause problems if the liquid boils on a heating surface.

This evaporator was built in Germany and tested on the factory site, unbolted, disassembled, containerized, shipped to the USA and installed on site. Evwporator a nozzle atomizer, the liquid is pumped into a swirl chamber and passes out through an orifice plate. W, distance from ground: The first stage has a 36 in.

Air velocity through the cross section of the drying chamber is an important design factor and is determined, in part, by the final particle size required. This system is designed for continuous production runs lasting several weeks, the results being highly viscous juices and concentrates with preserved product quality, color and natural characteristics, unaltered.


For most evaporation systems, the solvent is water and the heat is provided by steam condensation.

From these results, the total solids collected in the scrubber can be calculated. The cooling air temperature is controlled automatically by mixing some air from the main air heater, with cold air taken from the upstream of the same heater.

The steam tube unit is another type of indirectly heated dryer, which is particularly useful for fine-particle or heat-sensitive materials. Alternatively, and where there is limited floor space or a possible need for long residence time, multi-pass units are used with the conveyors mounted one above the other.

This package consists of motor, vacuum pump, tank, and tubular heat exchanger. Any air leakage at the bottom of the cyclone will carry powder away and out of the top inner cone.

Installation costs also are considerable. If the feed preparation involves high shear mixing, this can entrain air in the form of tiny bubbles into the liquid. APV Three Effect evaporator, with Alloy 20 vapor vessels and ducting and with Titanium heat exchanger surfaces plates in the 1st effect and Carpenter 20 heat exchanger surfaces plates in the next two effects.

The continuous method of operation also lends itself to large outputs and with the correct application of control equipment, to low labor costs.

This system was last av citrus juices and will be able to run most other types of juice or liquid products. These deposits are due to condensation on the cold surfaces adjacent to the leak and can be seen immediately prior to cleaning the plant after a production run.

Climbing and Falling Film Plate Evaporator

It is not unusual to see products characterized only on their wettability and sinkability. Evaporators are designed with two key objectives: Nozzle pressure, for a given orifice size, varies as the square of the flow rate — a higher flow gives a much higher pressure. Gas fired wastewater evaporator. In such cases, special sub-atmospheric equipment may provide the answer, although the capital cost in relation to output generally would restrict its use to premium grade products.


Circulation evaporator – Wikipedia

This limitation effectively restricts them to applications involving somewhat modest production runs. Generally, these extruders operate with rubber covered rollers moving over a perforated die plate with feed in the form of pressed cakes, or more usually, as the discharge from a rotary vacuum filter.

Thermocompression of vapor can be achieved by applying the steam-jet or by using mechanical means such as compressors. The operating process as described earlier, is extended, with exhaust gas from the baghouse being scrubbed and cooled in a condenser 13 using cooled solvent from an external plate eva;orator exchanger 15 as the scrubbing medium.

APV Dryer Handbook

This generally permits evvaporator drying, whereas in other types of dryers, lower temperatures would be necessary and correspondingly larger and more costly equipment would be required.

Colour Degradation and Kinetic”.

This will allow the low cyclone pressure to draw in some cool room air, providing an additional air sweep of the base of the cyclone. The logical extension of this technique is total dispersion drying, i.

The flow of the thin liquid film in the falling film evaporator is possible in two ways: Overall dimensions 7 ft. Plate Forced Circulation Evaporators utilize a centrifugal pump which forces liquid to circulate through the plate structures and heat exchanger. Figure 2, shows how a high-performance dryer can produce lbs kg of dried material in a 24 hour period, at a terminal figure of 0. The method of airflow employed on these dryers is either vertically downward through the material and the supporting band or alternatively upward.

This is not only necessary to support theoretical calculations but also to establish whether a particular dryer will satisfactorily handle the product.
