Plate Evaporators: A Key Technology in Sugarcane Processing

Enhancing Efficiency and Reliability in Sugar Processing Plants with Plate Evaporators

Plate evaporators are widely used in the sugar industry for their high efficiency in concentrating sugar cane juice. As large-scale sugar factories increase their production capacity, the demand for high-capacity plate evaporators continues to grow. The KELVION GEA CT193 plate evaporator is a popular choice for many sugar mills. SHINEHEAT, a professional supplier of plate evaporator accessories, offers laser semi-welded plate cassettes and gaskets that are fully compatible with the CT193 model, providing excellent cost-effectiveness and performance.

Working Principle:

Plate evaporators operate on the principle of heat transfer between two fluids. The sugar cane juice to be concentrated flows through one set of channels in the plate, while the heating medium, such as steam or hot water, flows through the alternate channels. The heat from the heating medium is transferred to the sugar cane juice, causing it to evaporate. The concentrated juice, now in the form of a syrup, is then collected at the outlet.

Advantages of Plate Evaporators:

  • High efficiency: The close proximity of the heating and evaporation surfaces in plate evaporators results in high heat transfer rates, leading to efficient evaporation and concentration of sugar cane juice.
  • Low energy consumption: The compact design and efficient heat transfer of plate evaporators minimize energy consumption, reducing operating costs for sugar mills.
  • Easy to clean and maintain: The plate design allows for easy disassembly and cleaning, minimizing downtime and ensuring optimal performance.
  • Scalability: Plate evaporators can be easily scaled up or down to meet the specific needs of different sugar factories.
