4) Evaporator systems, designed for crystallization of tartaric acid, batch-type, 2,000 gallons per 4-6 hours. Complete with crystallizer body constructed of sanicro 28 alloy, rated for full vac internal, measures 6' diameter X 8' straight side, dished top & bottom, (2) sets of internal coils, center top agitation with paddle agitator, driven by approx. 2 HP motor thru gear box, 6" center bottom outlet, 2" feed inlet with manual valve, 18" top manway & 16" top vent, each have a steam jet vacuum ejector. Gases escape through vent opening to (2) elevated evaporator bodies measuring approx 36" diameter X 6' high each. Second body introduces water through plates to create suction and condense gases. Also includes vacuum pump. Previously, solution entering the crystallizer was 15-18 % tartaric acid. Slurry coming out at end of process was 65-70% tartaric acid. By adjusting the amount of time of evaporation you can use lower or higher initial concentrations and obtain lower or higher final concentrations. Still installed and in very good condition.
