Title: Recovery Act - Process Intensification by Enhanced Performance of Multi-Effect Evaporators and Crystallizers
Agency: DOE
Contract: 02-10ER85641
Award Amount: $141,476.00
 

Abstract:

Currently enhanced tubes are not used in MEE evaporators and crystallizers and monitoring-based fouling mitigation is not practiced. Thermal separation processes are capital intensive and the industry is unlikely to replace the existing process equipment in working conditions just for energy savings. It was concluded in the ITP Sponsored AIChE Panel on Separations that in 2020 and beyond the industry will be using the process equipment installed in 2000 and before. Therefore, the developments to improve the energy efficiency should focus on retrofitting multi-effect evaporators and crystallizers with enhanced tubes and industry-wide application of mechanical vapor recompression (MVR) heat pumps. This proposal follows a similar path forward for multi-effect evaporation and crystallization process units. This transformational change in design of evaporators and crystallizers will have tangible energy efficiency improvements to achieve the DOE
