All TDS-Pro® evaporators have the ability to operate as a concentrator or a crystallizer. Both modes of operation utilize the same evaporator module, with no modifications necessary.
Operating as a concentrator allows the operator to generate a heavy liquid by-product that has a very high level of total dissolved solids. The concentrate can be used beneficially when heavy liquids are valuable to a process, or be disposed of through conventional methods.
Management of solids is one of the biggest challenges to desalination, and can have a major impact on the O&M expense. The TDS-Pro® has a very elegant approach to reducing the liquid volume to solids, so they can be transported off-site without hassle or downtime.
