Double Effect Evaporator

The double effect evaporator separates the feed stream into distilled and concentrated streams. The generated steam is used to further concentrate the liquid stream. The reuse of the steam gives the cost savings value to this technology. Students run the system batch and continuous modes.  Students will perform mass and energy balances for the system based on the data they obtain. The students also develop a theoretical model of the system to compare the actual data to.
