Film evaporator is a special liquid-liquid separation technology. Under high vacuum conditions, the mean free path of vapor molecules is greater than the distance between the evaporation surface and the condensation surface, and liquid mixtures can be separated by the difference in the evaporation rates of the materials and components in the liquid.
How it Works?
The QIYU agitated thin film evaporator consists of two major assemblies: a cylindrical heated body and a rotor.
Product is introduced above the heated zone and is evenly distributed over the evaporator's inner surface by the rotor. As the product spirals down the wall, the high rotor tip speed generates highly turbulent flow resulting in the formation of bow waves (see illustration right) and creating optimum heat flux and mass transfer conditions.
Volatile components are rapidly evaporated via conductive heat transfer. Vapors flow either counter-currently or co-currently through the unit, depending on the application requirements. In both cases, vapors are ready for condensing or subsequent processing (i.e. fractionation) after exiting the vapor discharge section.
Nonvolatile components are discharged at the outlet. Continuous agitation and mixing by the rotor blades minimizes fouling of the thermal wall where the product or residue is most concentrated.
