Mar 24, 2003· Wiped Film Evaporators - posted in Industrial Professionals: Does anyone know a good resource on the theory and operation of wiped film evaporators? I am having some issues with heat transfer on our unit in the plant and am trying to get to the heart of the theory. I have looked in Perry's and did a search on Dogpile, but I haven't gotten the kind of information that I am looking for.
Wiped film evaporators / thin film evaporators. In a wiped film evaporator or a thin film evaporator, a rotating wiper system distributes the crude product to a film on the inner surface of a heated pipe. The wiping system speeds up the evaporation process by keeping the product film turbulent so that the heat transfer and mass transfer are .
An LCI agitated thin film evaporator (TFE) or wiped film evaporator (WFE or "wiffe") provides short residence time and open, low pressure drop configuration, allowing continuous, reliable processing of many heat sensitive, viscous, or fouling materials without product degradation.
