Industrial Fixed Wastewater Evaporators

Recover up to 95% of industrial wastewater as high purity distillate

GE's vertical tube, falling film brine concentrators, and evaporators can recycle wastewater into a high-purity distillate that can be used for boiler and cooling tower makeup, flue-gas desulfurization (FGD) blowdown, NOx control, and process use. The remaining 5% is a slurry concentrate that can be sent to a small solar pond, reduced to dry solids in a crystallizer or spray dryer, or used for ash wetting.

Fixed Evaporator Features

  • Energy-efficient operation that is 25 to 50 times more efficient than conventional single-effect, steam-driven evaporators
  • High-grade construction materials designed to provide decades of reliable operation
  • Variable waste flows to treat as much as 3,000 gallons per minute (gpm) plus, or as little as 10 gpm
  • Ability to run on electricity or steam in a multiple-effect configuration
  • Patented brine distributors that ensure a smooth flow of brine, avoiding scale formation
  • Corrosion resistant titanium for reliable operation and long lifecycle
  • Proprietary seeded slurry technology controls scale, often limiting cleanings to only once per year
  • Fully automated operation to maintain precise system control and minimize operator interaction
