The Mechanical Vapour Recompression (MVR) system is recommended for applications where the availability of steam is restricted or expensive. This MVR system uses high-pressure fans to compress the vapour generated by the evaporation to a higher temperature and return it to the same effect. Excess vapour from this effect is either lead to a condenser or utilized in a finisher.
The MVR evaporator can also be fitted with the wrap-around separator that considerably reduces space requirements while matching or even improving the high efficiency of the traditional tangential separator.
The advantages of the MVR evaporator are:
- Low energy consumption. This applies to both heating and cooling requirements as the plant produces cold condensate suitable for cooling purposes.
- Recompression power supplied electrically thus reducing steam requirement
- Ease of operation. The fan allows for full and rapid control of evaporation within the entire range of the plant without reconfiguration of the plant.
