Installing Drum Evaporators

Installing Drum Evaporators

Installation of the ENCON Drum Evaporator is very straightforward and is generally handled by facilities, maintenance, or plant engineering personnel. For auto-fill applications, primary connections include plumbing from the holding tank, sump, or pit to the feed pump and/or inlet valve. Then from the pump and/or inlet valve to the 1" NPT inlet located on the lid of the evaporator. Stacks of varying materials are easily fitted to the exhaust stack with the provided quick connect adapter and ring clamp. The stack is typically installed vertically through the ceiling but can also be run at an angle to a nearby wall then run vertically up the side of the building. Recommended stack materials include galvanized, stainless, or CPVC.


Finally, three phase 240 or 480 VAC power is run to the control panel. All major system components such as control panel, level probes, blowers, thermocouples, and temperature controllers are prewired and tested at the factory.
