This EPCON evaporator was designed to concentrate a whey product from 5 % total solids to 20 % TS in 1 pass. Due to the product specifications at operation conditions, it was not possible to achieve the wanted performance - thus this EPCON evaporator was taken out of operation and is now in our storage.

Our evaporator designer has calculated on the physical parameters (745 pipes - Ø38 x 6 meter lenght plus the MVR charateristic, boiling temperature etc.) and found that the evaporating water capacity for this unit - is only around 4.200 kg/hour

This falling film evaporator plant operate with a MVR unit (Mechanical Vapour Recompression), which use electricity to recompress the evaporated water and hereby convert it to steam for re-use. The water evaporation capacity is depending on product parametres and boiling temperature, but in the range of 4.000 – 4.200 water evaporation per hour.

This complete EPCON unit will be delivered including original technical documentation. The footprint for the original installation was around 8 x 8 meter and around 8 meter in height.

This EPCON evaporator can be redesigned/rebuild to a 2 pass evaporator, thus increasing water evaporating capacity with around 25 %. Our evaporator designer can produce new calculations and drawings for your application.

Materials in contact with product are made of acidproof stainless steel, AISI316.
