Thermal Evaporators

ENCON Thermal Evaporation and Distillation Systems are engineered to provide you with the most effective and economical method of industrial wastewater minimization possible.

Wastewater evaporation is a time-tested method for reducing the water portion of water-based wastes. In its simplest form, the evaporator converts the water portion of water-based wastes to water vapor, while leaving the higher boiling contaminants behind. This greatly minimizes the amount of waste that needs to be hauled off-site. Click Here to learn more about evaporation.

If your waste stream is substantially water (70-99%), it is likely to be an excellent application for ENCON wastewater evaporators.

Thermal Evaporator Configurations

The ENCON Thermal Evaporator product line ranges in capacity from 8-400 gal/hr. These evaporation systems use natural gas, propane, steam, #2 fuel oil, diesel, kerosene, off spec gas, waste oil or electricity in order to fuel their heating processes. Alloys of construction include: 316L Stainless, 6% Molybdenum Super Stainless, and Hastelloy C to provide appropriate corrosion protection. Standard units exhaust water vapor to atmosphere. The optional condenser captures water vapor as distilled water.

All ENCON systems are assembled with the highest quality components, ensuring years of trouble free operation.

Our unique heat exchanger design on our thermal units provides extremely efficient heat transfer, resulting in reduced fuel costs.

Key to the effectiveness of out ENCON Thermal Evaporators is the Mist Eliminator. This feature captures unwanted contaminants before exhausting, thus enabling you to comply with today’s stringent emissions regulations (evaporation) or to return high quality water to your process (distillation).

The evaporator product line is defined by our feature based nomenclature as referenced in the tables below.
