Multi-effect Evaporators: Interactive Simulation

This simulation is browser-based and will work directly on this page. Try to predict the behavior when a parameter changes before using a slider to change that parameter.

Simulation: Triple-effect Evaporator

Try to answer these questions before determining the answer with the simulation. We suggest that you write down the reasons for your answers.

  1. As the feed flow rate increases, what happens to the concentration of sugar in the last effect?
  2. As the feed temperature increases, does the steam economy increase or decrease?
