One of the important process activity in chemical engineering is the concentration of the liquor. This is required in crystallization and many other processes to obtain solutions of required concentrations. Also in refrigeration and cooling plants, evaporator is one of the important components. Use of multiple effect evaporator can can improve efficiency and energy consumption. Optimum number of evaporators can be determined by increamental cost analysis of added effects and corresponding savings. The current review aims at summerizing the studies and research on evaporators.
Key words: heat transfer area, temperature, efficiency, energy consumption.
