Steam heated evaporation plants


steam heated evaporation plant

The operating costs of an evaporation plant are largely determined by the energy that is required to achieve a certain evaporation, rate.

Under steady state conditions there must be a balance between the energy entering and leaving the system and a simple relationship results: the sum of all energy and enthalpy inputs = the sum of all energy and enthalpy outputs.

The arrangement of the evaporation plant, the number of effects, the use of steam or waste energy or the number of preheaters are factors which are evaluated during the design phase of a custom tailor-made system in order to optimize the energy usage in the system.
