Coastal Technologies Solves Unique Paper Mill Challenge

Hampton, SC—Coastal Technologies, Inc., a worldwide provider of high-quality industrial mist eliminators, coalescors, and separation solutions, continues to meet and exceed customer expectations. In a recent collaboration with a large Georgia paper mill, Coastal solved a unique challenge involving an evaporator retrofit.

The mill, the second-largest producer of container board in North America, contacted Coastal for help with an existing chemical recovery evaporator train requiring retrofit to an evaporator during a short scheduled shutdown.

Having worked on numerous evaporator upgrade and retrofit projects in the past, Coastal was perfectly suited to accept the challenge of replacing the existing vertical flow chevron with a horizontal flow design in a fast turnaround. The solution was to implement a high-efficiency design to minimize chemical and energy loss.

Coastal used a standard AIROL® 430H125 chevron, with proven performance in "black liquor" service worldwide, in a uniquely packaged manner. To ensure a fast, accurate, and trouble-free installation, ten large preassembled subassemblies were installed by crane into the 30-foot-diameter vapor head through the removable 13' 9" diameter top head.

This resulted in low chemical loss to condensed steam, low operating pressure loss, a fouling-resistant design with exceptional accessibility for future service, and—most importantly—another satisfied customer.
