Original Press Release
Encon MVC Evaporators Dramatically Reduce Costs Associated with Industrial Wastewater Disposal
Press release date: February 1, 2009
FEBRUARY 1, 2009, MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE - The ENCON Mechanical Vapor Compression (MVC) Evaporator is designed to drastically reduce costs associated with industrial wastewater disposal. The ENCON MVC Evaporator is now available in standard capacities ranging from 40 gal/hr up to 1,800 gal/hr. Larger custom systems are also available. Each MVC evaporator can simultaneously process multiple waste streams and yield a distilled water product at a fraction of the cost of other disposal methods.
As the cost of energy continues to rise, the ENCON MVC Evaporator offers an economical solution to your wastewater disposal problems. Using proprietary technology and premium off the shelf components, the ENCON MVC Evaporator captures and reuses the latent heat normally lost in traditional evaporation equipment.
This "energy-recycling" process reduces the ENCON MVC operating costs by 85% to 95% over thermal evaporation, resulting in a typical operating cost of $0.01 - $0.02 per gallon of distilled water (based on $0.10 per KWh).
Across virtually every industry, environmental regulations governing the discharge of industrial wastewater are becoming more stringent. The ENCON MVC Evaporator converts your industrial wastewater into clean distilled water by removing oils, soaps, solids, and literally hundreds of other contaminants. The resulting clean water can be reused in your processes, or safely dumped to the sewer.
As a stand-alone solution or as a part of a multi step wastewater treatment system, the ENCON MVC Evaporator has simplified the process of wastewater management by eliminating the need for complex filtering or chemical treatment systems. By removing those time consuming and difficult to maintain processes, the ENCON MVC Evaporator also reduces the amount of manpower required. There are no sludge pits to empty and no chemicals to mix.
ENCON Evaporators is a principle designer & manufacturer of industrial evaporation, distillation and desalination systems. Product offerings include drum, thermal and MVC evaporators. Since it's founding in 1993, ENCON Evaporators has shipped hundreds of systems both domestically and internationally. ENCON is a leader in low-energy-cost solutions including the MVC Evaporator ($0.01-0.02 per gallon of distilled water) and the Waste Oil Evaporator that uses free waste oil to evaporate wastewater. Capacities for ENCON evaporator systems range from 2 - 1,800 gallons per hour.
