In evaporation, a solution consisting of a non-volatile solute and avolatile solvent is concentrated by the addition of heat. In multipleeffect evaporation, the volatile solvent recovered from the firstevaporator is condensed and used as a heat source for the nextevaporator. This means that the second evaporator must operate at alower temperature and pressure than the first evaporator.In this module you will simulate a series of three evaporators toconcentrate a solution of sucrose/water. Each evaporator is modelledusing a flash tank. You will convert the completed simulation to atemplate, making it available to connect to other simulations.On the next page, a Process Overview is shown. This represents theactual process. On the third page a Simulation PFD is shown. Thisrepresents the simulation as you will build it in this module. Building the simulation in this way allows more flexibility in the design.
Once you have completed this section, you will be able to:
