Evaporator

  1. 1. Evaporator <ul><li>Equipment used in evaporation, the process of boiling a liquid in order to reduce its volume </li></ul><ul><li>Need </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reduces transportation cost </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Storage costs </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Prepare for the next Unit operation – drying, crystallisation etc. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reduces deteriorative chemical reactions </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Better microbiological stability </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Recovery of solvent </li></ul></ul></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com
  2. 2. Evaporator <ul><li>Driving force: </li></ul><ul><li>Temperature difference in between steam chest temperature and product temperature. </li></ul><ul><li>Result : </li></ul><ul><li>Volatile solvent is removed from the feed. </li></ul><ul><li>Solution (volatile solvent + non volatile solute) </li></ul><ul><li>Concentrate (Higher solute Conc.) </li></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com
  3. 3. Examples <ul><li>Concentration of milk to produce condensed milk </li></ul><ul><li>Concentration of juices </li></ul><ul><li>Concentration of NaOH, NaCl from aqueous solutions to produce salt. </li></ul><ul><li>Ether recovery from fat extraction </li></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com
  4. 4. Basic Parts of an Evaporator <ul><li>Heat-exchanger </li></ul><ul><li>Vacuum </li></ul><ul><li>Vapour separator </li></ul><ul><li>Condenser </li></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com
  5. 5. Evaporator Vapor out Feed in Steam in (Saturated vapor) Product out Condensate out (Saturated Liquid) Vapor Separator Heat Exchanger Vaccum for non condensable Condensor unit Coolant In Coolant out http://avibert.blogspot.com
  6. 6. Evaporator Type <ul><li>Batch Pan </li></ul><ul><li>Rising Film </li></ul><ul><li>Falling Film </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple Effect Evaporators </li></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com
  7. 7. Processing Factors <ul><li>Conc of solute in feed </li></ul><ul><li>Conc of solute in product/concentrate </li></ul><ul><li>Pressure and Temp. of the system </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Depends on temperature sensitivity of material. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Boiling point elevation </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com
  8. 8. Processing Factors <ul><li>Steam pressure and temperature </li></ul><ul><li>Material of construction </li></ul><ul><li>Foaming </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Low heat transfer rate </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Entrainment loss </li></ul></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com
  9. 9. Heat Transfer Coefficient, h <ul><li>A coefficient which indicates the amount of heat flow that is exchanged across a unit area of a medium or system in a unit amount of time with a unit of temperature difference between the boundary of the system. </li></ul><ul><li>S.I. unit W m -2 K -1. </li></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com
  10. 10. Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient, U <ul><li>In cases of combined heat transfer for a heat exchanger, there are two values for h. </li></ul><ul><li>Convective heat transfer coefficient for the fluid film inside the tubes </li></ul><ul><li>Convective heat transfer coefficient for the  fluid  film  outside  the  tubes.    </li></ul><ul><li>  The  thermal  conductivity  (k)  and thickness (Dx) of the tube wall must also be accounted for.   </li></ul><ul><li>So an additional term (Uo), called the overall heat transfer coefficient, must be used instead.   </li></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com

  16. 16. Steam Trap <ul><li>Function </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Discharge condensate, air and other incondensable gases from a steam system while not permitting the escape of live steam </li></ul></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com

  23. 23. Mass Balance <ul><li>Feed Side: </li></ul><ul><li>m (kg/s) </li></ul><ul><li>m (feed in) = m (Vapor) </li></ul><ul><li>Steam Side </li></ul><ul><li>m (steam)= m (condensate collected) + m (flash) </li></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com
  24. 24. Flash Steam Loss <ul><li>The amount of flash steam produced during the pressure reduction can be expressed as: </li></ul><ul><li>w = (H il - H fl ) / H fe </li></ul><ul><li>where </li></ul><ul><li>w = ratio of flash steam generated (kg flash steam / kg condensate) </li></ul><ul><li>H il = initial liquid enthalpy (kJ/kg) </li></ul><ul><li>H fl = final liquid enthalpy (kJ/kg) </li></ul><ul><li>H fe = enthalpy of evaporation (kJ/kg) </li></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com
  25. 25. Energy Balance <ul><li>H (kJ/kg) </li></ul><ul><li>Energy from the steam to the water Q E </li></ul><ul><li>The Heat Loss from the vessel to the room, Q L </li></ul><ul><li>Amount of heat in condensing steam Q S </li></ul><ul><li>Q S = Q E + Q L </li></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com

Geankoplis </li></ul><ul><li>Animations on evaporator visit: </li></ul><ul><li>www.rpaulsingh.com and click animations then evaporator </li></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com
  28. 28. Multiple-effect Evaporator <ul><li>Water is boiled in a sequence of vessels, each held at a lower pressure than the last. </li></ul><ul><li>Because the boiling point of water decreases as pressure decreases, the vapor boiled off in one vessel can be used to heat the next </li></ul><ul><li>Generally the first vessel (at the highest pressure) requires an external source of heat </li></ul>http://avibert.blogspot.com
