I. Overview

In the pulp (chemical) and paper manufacturing process to produce three major wastewater: black (red) liquid waste and paper machine white middle. Black (red) was mainly cooking pulp wastewater, including gray water pulp washing, screening, bleaching wastewater, waste paper machine white water of papermaking workshop. Wherein the waste water from cooking the most serious environmental pollution, accounting for 90% of the entire paper industry pollution.

The red liquid acid pulping produce is the key paper industry wastewater treatment. Paper red liquid handling system MVR evaporator. MVR evaporator, mechanical vapor recompression is the English abbreviation. MVR is the re-use of secondary energy generated by its own steam, thereby reducing the demand for a technology for external energy.

Secondary steam, compressed in a compressor, the pressure and temperature can be increased, increased enthalpy, it is supplied to the evaporator as the heating chamber is heated using steam that is generated steam, liquid material to maintain the state of evaporation, and the steam heating itself transferring heat to the material itself is condensed into water. Thus, it had to be abandoned steam has been fully utilized, the latent heat recovery, and improved thermal efficiency.

The technology is widely used in chemical, pharmaceutical, paper, sewage treatment, desalination and other industries.

Two, MVR evaporator system

MVR evaporator re-use of secondary energy generated by its own steam, thereby reducing the demand for a technology for external energy. Their work is low bit vapor compressed by the compressor, temperature, pressure increased enthalpy increases and then condensed into the heat exchanger, to take advantage of the latent heat of the steam. In addition to start the car, the entire evaporation process without the generated steam.

Multi-effect evaporation process, a secondary steam evaporator efficiency of this effect can not be directly used as a heat source, as a secondary effect or only a few times efficient heat source. As this effect as an additional heat source for its energy, its temperature (pressure) is improved. Steam ejector can only compress part of the secondary steam, MVR evaporator and evaporator can compress all of the secondary steam.

Solution in a falling film evaporator, the circulating pump through the material circulating within the heating pipe. The initial steam tube with fresh steam to heat the solution is boiled to produce secondary steam, the steam generated by the secondary turbo blower inhalation, pressurized secondary steam temperature is increased, as a heating source into the heating chamber cycle evaporation. After the start, the secondary turbo compressor steam inhalation, after heating becomes pressurized steam, so a steady stream circulating evaporated. Evaporated moisture eventually become condensed water discharge

Due to cost reasons, single-stage centrifugal compressor and pressure fan is widely used in mechanical vapor recompression system.

Increased evaporation fan pump is the core component of red liquid evaporation system, reliable and stable operation of the device is a set of red liquid evaporation system normal operation of the fundamental guarantee. Since the evaporation fan pressurized air pump special function in the entire system, so it is a special type of load, a non-fan and can not be equated to ordinary pump load, its great for the entire production process of the evaporator process control influences.

Third, mechanical pulp evaporation works

Mechanical pulp evaporation wind pump is mainly used for waste water treatment plant, field process shown in Figure 1:

Figure 1 site process

work process:

Evaporator fan ... high temperature (greater than 100 ℃) was evaporated into high temperature steam pipes, and then pulls out the subsequent stage of the steam back to the evaporator, if the evaporator temperature is lower than 100 deg.] C, then the plant will be added to the high temperature steam evaporated fan, the steam temperature is maintained above 100 ℃. The preheater is heated by a pump, and concentrated wastewater is introduced into the processing MVR evaporator in a heat exchanger, recycling of waste water using steam heating, evaporation, concentration and other treatment, distilled water was refluxed into the preheater, and to for preheating the liquid concentrate obtained and the steam enters the separator through the separator, the separated steam into the compressor, and the separated concentrate were directly back to the collection tank, is processed in the concentrate. wherein the recyclable useful substances, to achieve zero discharge of wastewater, protection of the environment.

(1) liquid preheater to be treated in a heat exchanger before entering the steam temperature is low, in order to take full advantage of the thermal energy within the system requires the use of a heat exchanger for preheating liquid.

(2) liquid evaporator preheated by feed pump load it into the evaporator, compressor and compressed steam heated by steam boost after heat exchange, it quickly vaporized.

(3) separator: separator is a steam and a concentrated liquid separating devices.

(4) a compressor (air pump) MVR system is the core component, through the system of the second vapor compression, enthalpy increase, then the temperature and pressure increase in the secondary steam as a heat source for heating the system .

(5) Control System: IPC and PLC constitute the real-time control system, the MVR evaporator. Through software programming, real-time acquisition status signals from various sensors to automatically control the motor speed, valve switch and adjust the liquid flow rate and flow rate, temperature and pressure control and regulation, to make the system work to a state of dynamic equilibrium. Meanwhile, the device also has an automatic alarm, automatic recording parameters and provide various functions report.

(6) After washing system solution was evaporated over time, it will occur fouling, fouling by adding a chemical solvent removal.

(7) Vacuum system: the role of the vacuum system is to maintain the degree of vacuum of the system, part of the air extracted from the device, as well as non-condensable gas into the solution of the gas in order to achieve a steady vaporization system state.

Fourth, the variable frequency drive speed control principle

Induction motor speed n and frequency f, the motor slip s, motor pole pairs p have the following relationship:

N = 60f (1-s) / p

Seen from the above formula, n and frequency f is proportional to the rotational speed, as long as the change in the frequency f can change the motor speed, and motor output power will change, linear relationship between n and f, when f changes 0 ~ 50Hz when the rotational speed of the adjustment range is very wide. When the load changes induced draft fan speed is reduced, decreasing the output power also learned from the principle of fluid mechanics, using an induction motor-driven fan load, shaft power P and flow Q, head H relationship is as follows:

When the motor speed to change from the n1 and n2, Q, H, P and speed relationship is as follows:

Visible flow rate Q and the motor speed is proportional to n, and the desired shaft power P is proportional to the cube of speed. So when you need 80% of the rated flow rate by adjusting the motor speed to the rated speed of 80%, which can adjust the frequency to 40Hz, then the power required will be only the original 51.2%.

As shown in Figure 2, the fan from running graph to analyze the energy saving effect of frequency control post.

Run graph 2 booster fan

When the desired air volume flow rate is reduced from Q1 to Q2, if the adjustment flap approach adopted, it will increase the resistance of the pipe network, pipe network characteristic curve shift, the system operating point from point A change to the new operating operating point B point run, the required shaft power P2 and H2 × Q2 is proportional to the area; if speed control, fan speed decreased from n1 to n2, its pipe network characteristics are not changed, but the fan characteristic curve down, so the operating conditions from the point A moves to point C. In this case the required shaft power P3 is proportional to the area HB × Q2. Theoretically, savings shaft power Delt (P) is proportional to (H2-HB) × (C-B) in the area.

Reduced efficiency and speeder after considering the deceleration additional losses, through the practice of statistics, fan speed control can save energy by 10% to 40%, some energy-saving fan load ratio of more than 50%.
