Tubular evaporator

June 1, 2011


Used for the evaporation of low-viscosity items such as dairy products, fruit juices, plant extracts and other organic and non-organic products, the SPX falling film tubular evaporator consists of vertical tubular heat exchangers with a vapor separator, condenser and pumps. The unit provides a short residence time and high-efficiency heat transfer. Depending on the available energy source, either mechanical or thermal vapor recompression can be used in conjunction with the evaporator.
