Thermal separation of products by evaporation is widely used throughout the process industry. The purpose of the extraction varies from application to application, but the ultimate goal is the same – to get more products with less expenditure of energy and raw material.
These industrial evaporation processes are typically multistage; where the solvent is evaporated step by step, during which time the product phase becomes more viscous and concentrated. This in itself increases the risk of downstream equipment damage in case of carry-over. In addition, every single droplet lost in the process represents a loss in raw material and energy. Efficient mist eliminators play a crucial role in the evaporation processes by both protecting your process equipment downstream of the evaporator and by reducing loss of product.
