Evaporation and Crystallization Main Process Technology
The evaporation and crystallization technology belongs to the most energy consuming processes in the base chemical industry. Therefore it is decisive to choose the most suitable process considering all the environmental and energy aspects in order to ensure the economical feasibility for a long term. The following short introduction shall give a brief overview of the basic processes and its applications.
The decision which evaporator is the most suitable for each application is based on the chemical and physical properties of the solution, the solvent and the solutes. EVATHERM designs and manufactures four general types of evaporators. The first two are used for concentrating solutions where no precipitation occurs. The other two are mainly used for crystallization or scaling applications.
