Vacuum Evaporators Applications
Mech-Chem's single effect vacuum evaporators use conventional climbing film evaporative principles in a horizontal tube arrangement.
The vacuum evaporator is designed to produce a high purity distillate while maximizing volume reduction of the waste, wastewater, or waste acid solution being processed.
Mech-Chem fabricates each vacuum evaporator using the appropriate materials of construction for the specified application (i.e. wastewater, sale solution or acid solution). This provide maximum corrosion resistance with a long service life and low maintenance.
The vacuum evaporators are also equipped with NEMA 4X electrical components and PLC controls. This provides an automated evaporation system that is reliable and easy to operate.
Vacuum evaporators from Mech-Chem Associates produces clean, distilled water with non-detectable metals including mercury and molybdenum, making the water suitable for recycling. They can be used for the recovery of metals from concentrate by-products by reclaimers, concentrating plating baths for recycling, or producing high concentrations of waste and reusable by-products. Vacuum evaporators can also be used for the recovery of mixed acid solutions and are capable of producing a 50-60% wt% high purity nitric acid solution.
Evaporative capacities range from 5 to 1,000 GPH (Gallons Per Hour). All of Mech-Chem's evaporators are skid-mounted with the concentrate and distillate tanks included on the skid. Our evaporators are equipped with automatic valves and instrumentation with a user-friendly PLC control panel. The evaporators can be built with a conventional design for industries with steam, hot water or virtually any waste heat source, or can be build in a all-electric design.
