Aqua-Chem Introduces New Plate-Type Evaporator —Literature Available
The Water Technologies Division of Aqua-Chem, Inc. recently introduced a new line of marine plate-type, seawater desalting evaporators, designated type "SP". The standard unit, using low-temperature waste heat, is capable of producing 10,000 to 15,000 gallons of fresh water per day; other sizes are available on request.
Specifically designed for naval, commercial marine, and offshore applications, the standard "SP" single-stage plate evaporator measures 83 inches high, 70 inches wide, and 57 inches deep. Using waste heat from a diesel engine or other source, the unit evaporates salt water in a vacuum to produce fresh water.
A swing-away hatch provides easy access to the plate bundles and distiller chamber for ease of maintenance. Standard titanium plates, used in both the evaporator and the condenser plate bundles, provide excellent heat transfer and are resistant to seawater corrosion. A copper-nickel shell and internals are provided as standard; coated steel shells and internals can also be provided.
