A bench top training apparatus for the continuous concentration of a solution by evaporation under vacuum.
This working, controlled and operated, continuous evaporation unit and training aid, provides for an in-depth, hands-on understanding of the basic, the practical and the theoretical evaporation process. The device allows the student to experience and operate a continuous evaporation process and modify the variables upon which it is based. The product depicts the dynamic behaviour of single effect evaporation , such as the concentration of a juice or a solution with water and sugar. Students can analyze and calculate the thermal and mass balance as it is operated by the instructor and/or a student.
