Our MVR and TVR evaporator systems are designed with maximum flexibility to concentrate a wide variety of dairy products to a high total solids percentage.
The RELCO® Hi-Con Evaporator is specifically designed for use with our L-TECH Permeate Drying System. It is intended to concentrate permeate from feed solids of approximately 55-60% total solids to a discharge concentration of 75% total solids. The Hi-Con Evaporator utilizes TVR evaporation technology to minimize steam consumption.
Preheating is done with a tubular heater.
The heart of the evaporator where evaporation occurs. RELCO utilizes a falling film design. Calandrias are designed for each application to optimize surface area, tube wetting, and vapor velocities.
External vapor separators are sized to maximize evaporator condensate quality.
Uses steam to evaporate water. Thermocompressors are used in thermal vapor recompression (TVR) evaporators, and use plant steam to entrain and compress water vapor. This vapor mixture is used to concentrate incoming product.
Even the piping layout is specifically and uniquely laid out for the Hi-Con, allowing for reliable operation at very high product concentrations.
