Large evaporation plant planned, built and commissioned for the company Jäger in Gmunden (Austria)
We were awarded the contract to build a turnkey evaporation plant for the concentration of whey. After an engineering phase lasting several weeks, the production of the large evaporator, which is the main part of the plant, has begun The dimensions of the evaporator amount to a total length of approx. 23 metres (unit length). It has a diameter of 4.2 metres at its largest point and a unit weight of approx. 45 tonnes. 1,141 pipes, each 15 metres long, are welded inside the evaporator, resulting in a total length of about 17 kilometres. This corresponds roughly to the distance between Schwindegg and Mühldorf am Inn.
The individual units, the evaporator, preheater, condenser, receiver tank, CIP tanks, etc., were prefabricated at the Empl plant. The large evaporator was manufactured in three subassemblies that were later joined together. The construction of the individual units took about 8 months to complete. The assembled evaporator has a unit weight of 45 tonnes.
