Modular Evaporator

Aquatech’s SMARTMOD  uses a vertical tube falling film evaporator design to treat water produced during steam-assisted gravity drainage in oil sands. Benefits of SMARTMOD over conventional evaporator systems include a 10% lower power consumption and ASME distillate quality. Its online washing allows for continuous distillate production at more than 70% of design capacity during washing, said the company. The evaporator’s reduced center of mass and weight eliminate the need for a large evaporator building and the cost of foundation labor and materials. Its design also reduces freight costs for transportation of the system to the site.
