Evaporators - A Design Philosophy
That Assures Optimum Performance
Every Samsco Evaporator is designed to continuously concentrate water-based chemicals under harsh, ever-changing conditions. This demands uncompromising attention to system design, materials of construction, component selection, and safe process control logic.
The SAMSCO Water Evaporator II reduces wastewater volumes up to 99%. Samsco’s flagship product, the thermal SWE-II Sentry System, has been helping clients solve their industrial wastewater disposal problems for over twenty years. Single units evaporate from 8-150 gallons per hour, but may be combined to dispose of volumes up to several million gallons per year.
The SAMSCO WasteSaver™ Vacuum Distillation Evaporator recycles and recovers process wastewater for reuse The steam-heated, dual-effect WasteSaver™ maximizes efficiency by reusing process steam. This double use of process steam dramatically cuts energy costs. In addition, the patented EVAC™ liquid transfer system separates and returns to process, clean, distilled water. The units process from 50-2400 gallons per hour.
The SAMSCO EnviroStill is a highly energy-efficient, vacuum-aided, mechanical vapor recompression (MVR) evaporator.
The EnviroStill boils water under vacuum, and the vapor released from the boiling solution is compressed, and then condenses, yielding latent heat of vaporization, which is used to evaporate more liquid. Because most of the process heat is recovered and recycled, overall specific energy requirements are dramatically reduced, saving thousands of dollars in annual operating costs. The units process from 50-1500 gallons per hour.
Samsco also offers wastewater treatment technologies, including Reverse Osmosis and Ion Exchange, when a complete turnkey package best meets our clients’ needs.
The ET-III-W atmospheric wastewater evaporator is designed specifically to evaporate water from solutions with high solids content. This particular design eliminates any small, entrapping passages. The up AND down-draft spraying at very high flow rates produces high evaporation at moderate temperatures.
Filter Presses - A filter press is used anywhere there is a need to separate heavy solids from a liquid.
Clarifiers - Settles out solids into slurry by gravity feeding the wastewater from the top of the unit directly to the bottom, and forcing the water back up through the plate packs. Solids settle in the bottom cone section as thick slurry.
Sludge Dryers - The cake from a filter press can be reduced by as much as 4:1 by utilizing a sludge dryer.
