The Evaporation Process
Caloris is a world-leader in delivering process solutions in evaporation technology for existing or new equipment installations. Whether you are in the food, dairy, or beverage industry (including juice), or have an industrial or wastewater process that involves evaporation, the Caloris team brings to bear hundreds of years of experience to evaluate and design innovative solutions to meet your needs.
How Does the Evaporation Process Work?
The process of evaporation involves the removal of water (or other solvents) from a product or wastewater stream by adding energy to change the physical state from a liquid to a gas. In an efficient system, this energy is then recaptured as the gas (or vapor) state is condensed back to the liquid state.
With a keen eye towards the customer’s needs, the Caloris team focuses on delivering projects that focus on:
- Process Capacity Optimization
- Energy Optimization
- Robust Operation
Left: Evaporator wastewater feed (original volume = 100%) Middle: Evaporator concentrate (10% of original volume) Right: Condensed vapors (clean water) “freed” from feed (90% of original volume)
What does MVR stand for?
MVR stands for Mechanical Vapor Recompression. MVR turbofans generate heating vapors by compression of the water vapors evaporated from the product. For more information, see our blog.
How do I know what type of evaporator will work for my situation?
Caloris will work closely with you to learn about your current system and processing goals. We will bring our pilot equipment to your location for on-site testing, when applicable. The information derived from this testing will help us tailor your evaporation system to your exact needs.
Doesn't evaporation require a lot of energy?
Evaporation can be a very energy-intensive process, but Caloris specializes in the design and optimization of evaporators for peak energy-efficiency. Our patented designs ensure that your Caloris evaporator wastes no energy. Learn more about advances in evaporator energy efficiency on our blog.
Does Caloris only service Caloris evaporators?
All of us benefit from the evaporation process every day, in the beverages we drink, the foods we eat, and the products we use.
