Efficiently evaporating water from syrup to reach a true solids concentration much above 37%TS is not easy to do on a consistent basis. Aside from heat transfer challenges, pumping the shear thinning fluid at higher pressures is also a challenge. Kinergetics has performed extensive rheological (viscosity) and related property testing on “syrup,” and understands how to heat it, and how to pump it while minimizing fouling. Our high concentration systems are integrated with plant operations to ensure thermal efficiencies exceeding 90%. Pumping power is also optimized to ensure the lowest electrical cost.
