Easy to operate & extremely sturdy. Most frequently used
The Falling Film Evaporators can be operated with a low temperature difference and since the product residence time is very less, they are best suited for liquids which are temperature sensitive, have a high rate of specific heat transfer, particularly for non-crystalline solutions. Having low liquid holding volumes, the falling film evaporators are very easy to operate, clean and are extremely sturdy, thus the most frequently used types.
Caution must be used to ensure a continuous film wetting rate and to prevent nucleate boiling, otherwise the rate of heat transfer will fall off dramatically, and the rate of fouling on the heat transfer surface will increase.
