IF YOUR DISTILLED WATER NEEDS ARE NOT IN THE 800-6000 GALLON PER DAY RANGE AS ILLUSTRATED IN THE VAPOR COMPRESSION SECTION(HERE), YOU MAY WISH TO CONSIDER SMALLER WATER DISTILLATION SYSTEMS WHICH USE A "MULTIPLE EFFECT" DISTILLATION PROCESS:

75, 120 OR 500 GALLONS PER 24 HOURS



"Multiple-effect" distillation gets it's name from the fact that more than one boiling chamber or "effect" is used to produce distilled water. With multiple-effect technology, the heat energy contained in the steam generated in the first boiling chamber is reused to boil more water in subsequent boiling chambers. This recycling of energy provides the energy saving feature of multiple-effect distillation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The multiple-effect distillation systems use more than one boiling chamber ("effect") in the distillation proccss.

For example, the Model 500 with six boiling chambers, distills six gallons of water for the approximate cost of distilling one gallon of water in a typical single-chamber system. Similarly, the Model 120 uses four boiling chambers, so it is four times more efficient than a single-chamber system. In short. the more chambers used, the more eflicient the system.


FEATURES OF THE MULTIPLE-EFFECT DISTILLATION SYSTEMS

  • Effective producing water with purity of less than 2 ppm TDS.
  • Economical and efficient. Multiple-effect process cuts operating costs by one-half (Model 75) to one-sixth (Model 500).
  • Durable and dependable. No moving parts, such as floats, motors or compressors to wear out.
  • Constructed primarily of type 304 and 316 stainless steel.
  • Easy to install: only one electrical and three water connections are required.
  • Easy to operate, with built-in fail-safe controls. If feed water flow is interrupted, the low-water shutdown will stop system operation until the proper amount of feed water is again available. Electrical surge protection is standard equipment.
  • Self-cleaning, if system is operated on water containing less than 1.0 ppm of hardness and chlorine. A dual alternating tank water softener and commercial activated carbon prefilter are required.
  • Easy to monitor, with see-through panel for instant checking of system operation at a glance. Sight glasses and indicator lamps make each system even easier to use.
  • Water Purity Monitor designed to divert distilled water below preset purity level. Ensures that water for bottling or other application(i.e. Water Store) is always at acceptable purity levels
