Rising plate evaporators

December 1, 2008


API’s Schmidt Sigmastar 90 and 150 rising film plate evaporators provide short exposure time to the heating medium and reduce volumetric hold up. Suitable for a variety of evaporation processes, especially challenging products such as slurries, fluids with high viscosities and those with fouling tendencies that cannot be processed in falling film evaporators, the evaporator’s rising plates are pressed with longitudinal corrugations. When assembled in a frame, the adjoining plates form vertical tubes.
