Increased heat transfer and reduced scaling of evaporator tubes

Multi effect evaporators are a key component of industrial processing. In the sugar cane industry they provide high energy efficiency and good control resulting in good quality product. However the evaporation of water from the sugar juice results in scaling of the internal surface of the tubes, with decreasing heat transfer over a few weeks reducing throughput. A 10 hour stop is then required to clean the evaporators with chemicals. A method of increasing heat transfer and reducing the scaling …
