Thermal Evaporator Installation

Evaporation and Distillation Mode

Installation of the ENCON Thermal Industrial Wastewater Evaporator is very straight forward and is generally handled by facilities, maintenance or plant engineering personnel. 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. Other optional plumbing includes hard piping with a manual ball valve from the fitting on the residue cleanout flange to a residue holding tank as well as providing a nipple and manual ball valve to allow for decanting of free oil to a drum.

Evaporation Mode

Stacks of varying materials (galvanized, stainless, or CPVC) are easily fitted over the blower exhaust outlet. 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.

Finally, electrical power is run to the auxiliary control panel on the rear of the evaporator. Single phase, 110 VAC power is required for units 8-72 gal/hr (excluding electrically heated systems which require either 240 or 480 VAC, three phase power) and three phase, 240 or 480 VAC power is required for units rated 96-400 gal/hr. All primary system components such as level probes, blowers, burners, and modem are prewired and tested at the factory.

Distillation Mode

The only stack required for the ENCON Distillation System is for the flue gas. A high temperature (350-550F flue gas) B-Vent stack can be easily fitted over the outlet end of the draft inducer located on the chimney side of the system. 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. Electrical requirements are the same as for the Thermal Evaporator systems operating in evaporation mode:
