TEC Square designs a high-concentrator for dairy production lines, with an integrated feed and recovery system. This principle of design assures high energy recuperation, and minimal production losses.
The principle of operation is given by the following sequence:
- The pre-concentrate is heated by “cow” water, and other available sources of energy.
- It is, then, further heated by hot water to evaporation temperature.
- The condensed vapors or “cow” water are cooled by incoming pre-concentrate.
- Next, the high concentrate is directly fed to the high pressure pump that is linked to the spray drying operation.
High savings on Capital Expenditure and Operational Costs
The design requires less building foot print, less energy and fewer CIP circuits. A short holding time at thermophile temperatures.
Characteristics and advantages of a TEC Square High Concentrator
High Concentrator Type
TEC Square is flexible as we define MVR or TVR evaporators based on customer request. We adapt the design to suit our process needs.
Higher Concentrator Outlet System
TEC Square designs the outlet of the concentrated liquid as a buffer tank. This will allow forwarding the concentrate straight to a spray dryer without a spray dryer feed tank system.
TEC Square designs the system such that we create maximum heat recovery:
Straight Through Process
TEC Square designs the process without the need for buffer tanks. The product goes straight from the high concentrator outlet to the spray dryer.
We have a small water buffer tank for starting and stopping the process.
