ARTICLE ON SIMULTANEOUS EVAPORATION AND CONDENSATION TECHNOLOGY IN “WATER TODAY”
My article on my patent pending “Simultaneous Evaporation and Condensation in Connected Vessels” technology was published in “Water Today” magazine. The technology provides a more efficient, economical and operationally flexible form of distillation operation to separate dissolved or suspended solids and miscible liquids from water or other liquids. The technology is based on a new principle given by the inventor according to which the molar rate of evaporation in one vessel is equal to the molar rate of transfer of vapors to a connected vessel and the molar rate of condensation in the connected vessel for a closed system. Any change in either of the three rates results in adjustment in the temperature and pressure of the two connected vessels such that the three rates again become equal at a new value. The principle holds when a compressor is configured in the connecting pipe. The technology is simpler to implement and less expensive in capital as well as operating costs than “Low Temperature Thermal Desalination (LTTD)” technology and “Mechanical Vapor Recompression (MVR)” technology.
