Falling Film Evaporator
The falling film evaporators are equipment manufactured in Brazil with technology from French company FIVES in association with PROCKNOR ENGENHARIA and are designed to provide high evaporation rates operating with low temperature difference between the heating steam and the condensed juice.
Falling Film Evaporators have lower residence time of the juice on the equipment, which reduces the color formation. They operate automatically, with a recirculation pump that ensures the formation of a film of juice through the tubes, which have greater length than those of conventional evaporators. This construction allows to operate with smaller temperature difference, which is ideal for systems with five effects of evaporation or to work with lower escape vapor pressure. There are now over 30 falling film evaporators operating in plants throughout Brazil.
