Open Pan Evaporator
Evaporation is a process for
concentrating a solution by vaporizing part or all of the solvent. In
most of the cast s the solvent is water. The Pan Evaporator set-up is
designed to study the fundamentals of evaporation process. The set-up
consists of a jacketed pan evaporator made of stainless steel and an
electrically heated steam generator of suitable capacity. To evaporate
the solution in pan, steam is allowed to enter in the jacket using a
control valve. Condensate is collected from steam trap for energy
measurement. Tilting is done by a worm gear arrangement to empty the

- To determine the value of heat transfer co-efficient at the boiling point.
- To plot heat transfer co-efficient.
