Wiped Film Evaporator Short Path Evaporator
The most innovative form, in which GIG Karasek has particular expertise, is wiped film/short-path technology. The technology is based on the basic principle of distillation. This process is especially gentle and energy-efficient due to the mixture‘s short residence time at evaporation temperature. Installations with surface areas from 0.1 to 100 m² and evaporation capacities from 0.1 kg/h to 10 tons/h demonstrate the wide range of applications. Installations manufactured from high-grade steel or highly corrosion resistant alloys, are employed in fields as varied as the recovery of solvents, distillation of fatty acids, lactic acids or vitamins and the drying of industrial and municipal sludge. At the same time, GIG Karasek supports interested customers successfully through all stages from preliminary studies and practical testing in the company‘s dedicated development centre for evaporator technologies to erection and routine service interventions.
