PERFORMANCE OF FALLING FILM PLATE EVAPORATORS IN RECONSTRUCTED MULTIPLE-EFFECT EVAPORATION STATION IN SUGAR FACTORY

ABSTRACT
General trend of free trade in regional level as well as in the direction of European Union has motivated sugar factories located in Serbia to invest into technologies that are more efficient in order to make their products more competitive at the markets in Europe. The aim of this work was to evaluate effects of falling film plate evaporators on the energy consumption of evaporation plant, as well as to validate performance of this type of evaporators. It was found that this type of evaporator decreased energy requirements and in the same time evaporation process was more effective due to high values of heat transfer coefficients. .
