Mechanical Vapour Compression
Vacuum evaporator by thermocompression for the evaporation of industrial wastewater
In vacuum evaporation, mechanical vapor compression is a technology used for industrial water evaporation. It is based on utilizing the steam generated in the boiler to provide energy to the water in the boiler. It consists of two streams:
- The first stream is the steam generated in the boiler, which receives an energy input when it is compressed in a compressor and releases energy in a heat exchanger.
- On the other hand, the remaining water is pumped from below the boiler and sent to the heat exchanger, where it receives energy from the steam and is recirculated to the boiler.
The use of this technology results in low consumption and, consequently, low economic costs because it operates in a closed cycle and does not require an external energy regulation system.
