Aqueous Technologies Introduces Model AQ-Series Evaporators
Apr 05, 2004
Aqueous Technologies Corporation announces the introduction of a series of Evaporators: Model AQ-7, Model AQ-12 and Model AQ-12G.
The Model AQ-Series evaporators are available in either a natural gas or propane heated configuration, or as an electric model (Model AQ-7). Typical applications include minimizing wastewater from machining operations, parts washing equipment, compressor condensate, mop water, die cast solutions, and many other water-based wastestreams.
Installation of the series is very simple. Model AQ-7 requires an electrical service and a 6" vent stack. Model AQ-12 requires an electrical connection and a 10"diameter vent stack. Model AQ-12G (gas model), requires a 110 VAC electrical connection, a ĺ" standard pressure gas line, and a 10" exhaust stack. The units can be filled using three different methods: 1. Plumb the feed source into the supplied coupling on top of the unit; 2. Remove the lid and manually fill the unit; or 3. Use the optional 70 GPM self-priming fill pump.
After an initial heat up time of approximately one hour, the units will evaporate at fast rates. Model AQ-7 evaporates at 5-7 GPH, while Models AQ-12 and AQ-12G both evaporate at 12-17 GPH.
The Model AQ Series evaporators will shut down automatically via a low-level control. A secondary high-temperature shutoff is also provided. When a cycle is completed, the waste material can be drained via a 2" drain opening, vacuumed out of the unit via the removable lid with a wet/dry vacuum or pump, or for solid materials, scooped out. To facilitate cleanout, the interior tank of the AQ-12G is sloped toward a 2" outlet. Additionally, its "U"-shaped burner tube is located around the perimeter of the process tank, allowing access between the tubes.
Each evaporator in the series features a heavy-duty 12 gauge tank, covers and stack. Additionally, the series offers adjustable burners (NG or Propane) with electronic ignition, flame rectification system and, on the AQ-12G only, an air-pressure sensor. Automatic shutoffs, two-switch on/off operation, removable lid for fast and easy cleanout, fully insulated tanks, power exhaust for outdoor venting, polyurethane finish, and more also come standard.
