The B&P Engineering evaporator system it’s a modern device used to achieve the required degree of concentration of various types of fluids.
The B&P Engineering falling film evaporator system is a modern device used to achieve the required degree of fluid concentration. The multistage evaporator (juice evaporator) with falling juice film is the most important device of the production cycle. It is used to condense juices, juice syrup and oat syrup as well as apples or soft (coloured) fruits juices.
Depending on the Customer’s needs and technical constraints we build III-IV-V-VI-section evaporator systems. Number of sections (columns) of the station depends on the Customer’s requirements and B&P Engineering suggests the best solutions for a particular application.
Evaporator stations manufactured by B&P Engineering allow you to change the capacity mode without the need for an operator to perform mechanical operations.
|Evaporation efficiency||3 000 to 56 000 l/h (two modes of operation: low capacity up to 40% of nominal feed rate and high capacity 40% to 100% of nominal feed rate. The change of the operating mode is done automatically without the need for mechanical intervention by an operator. Within each operating mode, the output can be continuously adjusted.)|
|Number of sections||from 3 to 6|
|Steam consumption||aprox. 0.217 kg steam / kg evaporated water|
|Steam pressure||8 bar|
|Power input||60 - 300 kW|
|Materials||stainless steel AISI 304/ option AISI 316L|
|Dimensions/6-section system||Approx.14m x 3,5m x14m|
During the entire juice production process, raw material reaches the evaporation station twice:
State of the art technologies available on the market and ongoing research works makes B&P Engineering evaporation station marked out by:
B&P Engineering evaporation station ensures high process efficiency, rapid evaporation and low steam consumption. Automatic controlling with visualisation enables the operator to control the parameters of pasteurised juice on a current basis.
The product is distributed on the heating pipes and a thin film is created as it flows downwards. The heating steam is used to heat the pipes from the outside, causing the fluid to boil and evaporate. Fluids and vapours are separated in the lower section of the heating element.
The concentrated fluid travels to the subsequent concentration section, while vapours are directed to the separator and are later used for further evaporation. The product must undergo all evaporation stages in order to achieve the desired degree of concentration. Each B&P Engineering juice evaporator system is designed based on extensive consultations. Thanks to our excellent vertical integration, we can guarantee high flexibility and ensure that all process and customer requirements are met.
