What is a single effect evaporator?
The function of single-effect falling film evaporator is to separate the ethanol from material and condense and recover it through reduced pressure vacuum and evaporation. The single-effect falling film evaporator used for ethanol solution production is different from the general single-effect falling film evaporator used for aqueous solution production. Ethanol has a low boiling point and is volatile. Ethanol can be evaporated easily under vacuum and reduced pressure, so it has a small evaporation area. It is difficult to condense and recover ethanol vapor, so the heat exchange area of the condenser is relatively large. In order to obtain a good cooling effect, two or more stages are often used for cooling recovery, which is also different from the general aqueous solution evaporation.
What is a falling film evaporator used for?
The materials are evenly distributed into each falling film pipe through the distributor, and flow down the wall of the pipe in the state of a liquid film. Under the action of gravity and the secondary steam flow, the materials get evaporated while flowing down. At the bottom of the falling film tube, the materials and secondary steam are basically separated, and they reach the separation chamber to achieve complete separation.
