Benefits of a Heat Recovery Evaporator
 
The benefits of using a heat recovery evaporator watermaker are:

Excellent Return-On-Investment
  • Reduces energy requirements
  • Lowers operating costs
  • Maintenance costs are greatly reduced
  • Up-front capital costs are in line with other watermaker technologies
  • Significantly longer equipment life
  • Long term economic advantage
Low Cost of Operation and Maintenance
  • Energy is derived from waste heat; enhances fuel efficiency
  • Low maintenance requirements in turn means low labor cost requirements
  • No filters to change or membranes to replace
  • Cleaning is not frequently required and is easy and safe
  • Start up is easy and the unit monitors itself

Effective Operation
  • Thermal Circulation Shroud/flushing designs
    • Provides thermal stability
    • Flushing actions keeps heat exchanger surfaces clean
Effective Layout
  • Equipment mounted on a common foundation to form an extremely compact, lightweight unit
  • Delivered complete, ready to install and operate
  • Easy to access all components and compartments

Robust Designs
  • Simple low pressure designs are highly reliable
  • Design provides good water production at different engine loads
  • Works effectively in varying seawater conditions
    • Water temperatures
    • All water salinity:
      • Fresh water
      • Brackish water
      • Seawater
    • Will not foul in the presence of oil or other contaminants
Eco-Friendly
  • Reduces CO2 emissions
  • There are no disposal issues created by discarding membranes and filters
