ENCON Evaporators

Evaporation technology offers the simplest and most effective approach to industrial wastewater minimization. ENCON Wastewater Evaporators are able to handle a wide range of waste streams simultaneously and are a great option for manufacturing processes that may expand or change in the future. Many companies that generate industrial wastewater are hauling their water for disposal at a high cost per gallon. Other companies are treating the wastewater, often with labor and chemical intensive processes, and are having to adhere to increasingly strict discharge limits to their local sewer authority. ENCON Evaporators has installed hundreds of wastewater evaporators throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

Year Founded:

ENCON Drum and Thermal Evaporators offer an alternative to hauling and treating by safely evaporating wastewater to atmosphere at a dramatically lower cost. ENCON Mechanical Vapor Compression (MVC) Evaporators recover and recycle wastewater as distilled water for reuse or discharge to the sewer. ENCON MVC Evaporators are very energy efficient with typical energy costs in the range of $0.01 – 0.02 per gallon of distilled water. Finally, the ENCON Drum Dryer will efficiently dewater concentrated residues to a dry condition, in most cases, for landfill disposal.

All ENCON systems are designed to operate off shift and unattended to minimize manpower requirements and cost. ENCON Sales Engineers will work with you to qualify applications based on ENCON lab and pilot scale testing. The ENCON approach is consultative with special focus on providing solutions with financial justification and regulatory compliance.


Innovation is at Our Core

ENCON was founded on the principle of design improvement. At the time, evaporators did not use any type of mist pad. This was problematic because contaminants could become entrained in the exhaust vapor, possible causing an environmental impact outside the building. In 1993 ENCON introduced the world’s first thermal evaporator with mist pad technology as part of the standard design.

Today, our tradition of innovation continues. Our MVC Evaporators can deliver a distilled water product with operating costs as little as $0.01 - $0.02 per gallon. Our Thermal Evaporators can be powered by a wide variety of power sources, from natural gas & propane to waste fuels such as off-spec landfill gas, waste oil, and engine & turbine exhaust.

Evaporation is What We Do

ENCON designs, manufactures, and distributes evaporators. Period. We’re not a subsidiary of some large corporation. We don’t sell a bunch of different technologies. We believe you can’t be good at everything. So we’ve chosen to be great at one thing: Evaporation technology.

Company Overview

ENCON Evaporators is located approximately 60 miles northwest of Boston in Hooksett, New Hampshire. We also have a sales office in Southern California.

When orders for ENCON Wastewater Evaporator Systems are received, they are placed into the production schedule and are built to order. Some exceptions are the ENCON Drum Evaporator, as well as our smaller capacity (10, 18, and 28 gallons/hour) Thermal Evaporators that are heated by off spec gas, natural gas, propane, steam, oil, and electricity. The gas systems are generally fabricated 2-6 at a time and may be inventoried for quick delivery.

All ENCON Wastewater Evaporators are quality control inspected at ENCON Evaporators facility in Hooksett, NH before being crated and shipped. This includes verifying that all control functions, heat supply, and ventilation systems are working properly. ENCON Evaporators is pleased to provide on-site or over-the-phone installation and start-up assistance, depending on customer needs. All evaporators (except the ENCON Wastewater Drum Evaporator) have control systems that include Ethernet hubs that allow remote connection for troubleshooting or monitoring of your system.
