Product Details

Product introduction

A multi-effect evaporator is a device that uses the latent heat of steam, consisting of multiple evaporators in series, each of which is called a single effect. In a multi-effect evaporation system, raw steam is used as the heat source in the first effect, the secondary steam is used as the heating steam in the next effect, and so on, and the steam in the last effect goes into the condenser and is condensed by the cooling water. This method can significantly save energy consumption, because the heat input at one time can be reused in multiple evaporators.


Multi-effect evaporator composition

The multi-effect evaporator mainly consists of a number of evaporation stages, heat exchangers and vacuum system and other core components.
1. Evaporation stage: It is the core part of the multi-effect evaporator, and each evaporation stage includes a heat accumulator, evaporator and separator. The solution first enters the first stage evaporator, where it is heated to evaporate, and then separated from the liquid by a separator.

2. Heat exchanger: In the multi-effect evaporation system, the heat exchanger of each effect plays a crucial role. The first effect heat exchanger is responsible for introducing raw steam to generate heat, while each subsequent effect heat exchanger uses the secondary steam produced in the previous effect as a heat source.

3. Vacuum system: It is used to maintain the operating pressure of the entire system to ensure that each effect is carried out under the appropriate pressure for the evaporation process, thus affecting the boiling point and evaporation efficiency of the solution.


Multi-effect evaporator features

1. High energy saving efficiency: by connecting a number of evaporators to operate, the secondary steam generated during evaporation in the former effect evaporator is used as the heating steam of the latter effect evaporator, so that the heat energy is reused many times and the heat energy consumption is significantly reduced. This design makes the multi-effect evaporator more efficient in energy use than the traditional single-effect evaporator.

2. Various types of equipment: according to the nature of the material, equipment investment and operating costs of the comprehensive consideration, you can choose different efficiency of the evaporator, such as single effect, double effect, three effect, four effect and even five effect evaporator.

3. Strong adaptability: Multi-effect evaporation technology has developed into a more mature technology, especially in seawater desalination and high-salt wastewater treatment, it solves the serious problem of scaling, showing good adaptability and stability.

4. Space saving: Multi-effect evaporation system adopts multi-stage evaporation and coagulator design, which makes the same processing capacity, its footprint is small, saving production space, and easy to maintain and operate the system.


Multi-effect evaporator application field

1. Chemical field: Multi-effect evaporators are mainly used to separate and concentrate various solutions. For example, it can be used to treat the solution of inorganic salts such as sodium sulfate and sodium chloride, as well as the concentration process of organic compounds.

2. Food field: Multi-effect evaporator is widely used in the concentration process of fruit juice, vegetable juice, dairy products, etc. This helps maintain the original flavor of the food while extending the shelf life of the product.

3. Environmental protection: Multi-effect evaporator is mainly used in the field of environmental protection for the treatment of industrial wastewater, especially wastewater containing high concentration of dissolved solids. Through the evaporation process, the pollutants in the wastewater can be effectively removed and the pollution to the environment can be reduced.


Technical principle of

The principle of multi-effect evaporator technology is based on the heat transfer and phase change process in thermodynamics, and the multiple utilization of heat energy is realized through multiple evaporators in series.


The working principle of the multi-effect evaporator is to use the secondary steam produced in the previous effect (evaporator) as the heating steam for the next effect. In this way, each effect operates at a different pressure, and as the pressure decreases, the corresponding heating steam temperature and the boiling point of the solution decrease in turn. Specifically, the first effect is usually heated using an external heat source, such as raw steam, which boils the solution and produces steam. This steam is then transported to the secondary effect as its heating source, where the solution also boils and produces steam. This process continues until the final effect.


It is worth noting that the greater the efficiency of the multi-effect evaporation system, the more obvious the theoretical energy saving effect, because the consumption of new steam will be less. But in fact, with the increase of efficiency, the increase in energy-saving effect will gradually decrease, and the fixed investment cost of equipment will also increase. Therefore, the common multi-effect evaporation system is generally 3 to 5 effects.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What factors should be considered in the design of multi-effect evaporator?
A: When designing a multi-effect evaporator, it is necessary to consider the nature of the feed solution (such as concentration, viscosity, temperature, etc.), the processing capacity, the quality requirements of the product, and energy consumption and other factors.


Q: What is the operation difficulty of multi-effect evaporator system?
A: The main difficulty in operating a multi-effect evaporator system is to precisely control the heat transfer process between the steam and the material to ensure evaporation efficiency and product quality. In addition, it is also necessary to pay close attention to the operating status of the equipment to discover and solve possible problems in a timely manner.


Q: How to optimize the operation efficiency of multi-effect evaporator?
A: To optimize the efficiency of the multi-effect evaporator, the following measures can be taken: Regular cleaning of the heat exchanger to reduce scaling; Keep the system at an appropriate vacuum; Ensure feed temperature and concentration stability; Timely discharge of non-condensable gas; And maintain good sealing to prevent heat loss.


Q: What are the common faults in multi-effect evaporators?
A: Common failures include pump blockage or damage, pipeline leakage, abnormal pressure, insufficient heating, and reduced separation efficiency. These problems can be caused by a variety of reasons, such as aging equipment, improper operation, or changes in material properties.


Q: How to clean and maintain the multi-effect evaporator?
A: The multi-effect evaporator should be cleaned regularly to remove the sediment and dirt on the tube wall. This is usually done by chemical cleaning or mechanical cleaning. At the same time, pumps, valves and other dynamic equipment need to be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure their good operating condition.
