Evaporators: Uses and Applications

An evaporator coil is a heat exchanger, so is a condenser coil. You have two coils in a heat exchange system: an evaporator (which removes heat from a room) and a condenser (which blows the heat drawn from the room outside). So, just like in your house, the evaporator is sitting in a plenum above your furnace on the inside, and the condenser is the unit outside.

There are many types of evaporators and condensers that will remove heat from one area and move it to another. At Tridan International, we manufacture machines to make heat exchanger coils for cooling hydraulic fluid.  Caterpillar tractors, swamp coolers, air handlers, water cooling systems and hot water heaters are some examples. Anything with a tube and fin coil is used for heat exchanger applications.Evaporator Coil

Here Are Some Specific Applications

Heat Recovery Evaporators

Heat recovery evaporators are made to pump seawater or other liquid feed sources into a chamber in the base of the evaporator.  Once pumped, the liquid then submerges a heat exchanger and the low-temperature boiling begins. As the steam vapor rises, it contacts a cold condenser tube bundle and condenses it back to a liquid. Then, the distillate is collected and is pumped into a clean water holding tank.

There are many benefits of having a heat recovery evaporator to create fresh water. Here are A few of its advantages:

  • Reduces energy requirements
  • Lowers operating costs
  • Long-term economic advantage
  • Cleaning is not really required
  • Easy and safe

Oil Field Evaporators

Oilfield evaporators help to remove produced water that often contains salt, oil and grease and various natural inorganic and organic compounds. Many suppliers to the oil industries are based and work in Oklahoma and Texas, where demand is high. Although these types of evaporators can be quite difficult to work with, a few advantages of owning one are:

  • Cost-effective produced water removal system
  • Meets many government regulations
  • Can rapidly increase the evaporation process
  • Relatively compact, reliable and efficient
  • Can be transported to different sites
