Vacuum evaporators

Vac pan agitators

In the sugar industry, one of the most important processes is vacuum evaporation, used in the crystallization of sucrose: during treatment, the mixed fluid can also reach very high densities, up to 1.5 kg/dm3 and a maximum viscosity of 35,000 cP.

To keep production active it is therefore necessary that during the campaign, between August and November, the agitators operate in a continuous cycle, without any interruption. For this case, we at PRO-DO-MIX® have chosen to install our 3PM-1084 impellers, which ensure a very high pumping capacity inside the draft-tube and very high heat exchange efficiency, and at the same time, maximum durability, necessary to avoid having to stop operations for any required maintenance.

In the gallery, some projects are shown for 70 m3 vacuum tanks installed in Italy and Russia.

Industrial Mixing Impellers

Three-blade impeller with high hydrodynamic profile. Within our industrial impeller models, it has the lowest torque for the same flow rate. Moreover, it can create the highest flow rate with the lowest peripheral speed.

It is perfect as flow-maker, for high head values in recirculation.

It can be manufactured with different diameters, 200 to 3500 mm.

A completely disassemblable option is available as well, to ease the entering through the tank manhole.
