Our MVR and TVR evaporator systems are designed with maximum flexibility to concentrate a wide variety of dairy products to a high total solids percentage.
The CrystaLac™ Crystallizing Evaporator is specifically designed to control crystal growth by recirculating a super-saturated lactose solution during evaporation. This process substantially improves final lactose yield, while reducing process variability for lactose drying systems.With the CrystaLac™ process, crystallization begins during the evaporation process, not during batch cooling as it does in traditional lactose manufacturing processes.
Crystal growth in the evaporator is controlled at a high solids concentration, significantly increasing product yield and promoting stable operation of downstream processing equipment. Crystal slurry containing the larger crystals is continuously bled from the CrystaLac™ Crystallizing Evaporator to the cooling crystallizers, increasing crystal size and maximizing lactose recovery in subsequent separation, washing and drying operations. The CrystaLac™ can be configured with vapour recompression technology for improved energy efficiency.
The CrystaLac™ evaporator is used specifically with the high quality L-TECH™ Lactose Drying System.
