AGITATED FILM EVAPORATORS

LINK INDUSTRIAL develops and manufactures equipment for agitated film evaporation

Agitated film evaporation

Mixtures of liquids can be separated by distillation into their individual components if they have different vapor pressures . However, heat-sensitive components can degrade if subjected to high temperatures . The rate of degradation increases exponentially with temperature and linearly with residence time.

Evaporation under vacuum reduces considerably the boiling point. In addition the film evaporation achieves high heat transfer coefficients (which leads to equipment with smaller cross-section than traditional evaporators) and very low residence times (usually less than 1 minute). Therefore film evaporation under vacuum is the most appropriate method for the concentration of heat-sensitive products.

Key Benefits

  • Very low residence times (to avoid product degradation).
  • Elevated heat transfer coefficients due to agitation.
  • Ability of working at high vacuum (down to 0.001 mbar).
  • Ability of working with products of medium / high viscosity.
  • Prevents the formation of hot spots due to agitation.
  • Absence of static pressure on the boiling liquid.
  • Self-cleaning equipment, avoiding fouling on the heat transfer surface.
  • Ability to work in continuous or batch mode.
  • Minimization of risk due to the low retention of product inside the evaporator.
