Concentration is a required process stage in different industries to get final products with a different quantity of a specific component to be placed into the market, to reduce the product quantity to be stored or transported, to recover by-products from spent solutions or , if applicable, to reduce time and costs of sequent process steps as filtration, drying, purification.
Since 1961, under the Mabo brand, we develop solutions based on thermal separation processes and mainly on evaporation that can be successfully used to concentrate different kind of products, organic and inorganic, including waste water.
Concentration of temperature sensitive, viscous and fouling products is also possible thank to our advanced equipment portfolio including thin film evaporators.
Depending on the specific customer need other process steps can be developed and engineered:-
To identify the specific process solutions we rely on our R&D centre equipped with process simulation software, laboratory and pilot units: tests are run on samples provided by customer in order to select process equipment, study product behaviour during evaporation, define the right process parameters and support scale-up. Customer process validation and reliability verification tests are run on request.
Physical and chemical parameters are also determined: boiling point, density, viscosity, solubility, chemical composition (e.g initial and final product concentration, distillate and concentrate composition, impurities)
From testing to engineering and plant design, a dedicated team of scientists and engineers assist and support our customers, progressing together step by step.
