WHEN NATURE ISN’T FAST ENOUGH

Evaporation ponds, commonly used in desalination plants, mining operations and decontamination applications, are designed to efficiently evaporate water using sunlight and ambient temperatures. But nature can’t always work as fast as industry needs its to, which is where the E46 Floating Evaporator from EmiControls, available in Australia and New Zealand through Techpro Australia, can help.

Rapid evaporation depends on high temperatures, low relative humidity and high winds. Evaporation is also affected by the salinity of the water, with rates decreasing by about 1 per cent for every percentage increase in salinity.

The E46 Floating Evaporator is designed to increase the natural evaporation rate by at least 10-12 times the speed of nature. It even includes the option of a weather station so you can automate when the evaporator is in operation, depending on environmental conditions.

It works by pumping water through specially designed and patented nozzles that use the Venturi principle to draw air into the water stream to produce water droplets that evaporate more readily. The nozzles’ unique design also minimises the drift of contaminated water droplets outside the perimeter of the pond.

The E46 has four HDPE UV stabilised pontoons and a stainless steel lifting frame. Each nozzle is also HDPE to cope with hazardous ambient and corrosive liquids. The E46 is modular, so multiple units can be used in the same pond to achieve rapid evaporation.

The E46 Floating Evaporator is only available through Tecpro Australia, which holds the exclusive distribution rights in Australia and New Zealand. Founded in 1982, Tecpro Australia is a specialist engineering supply company located in Castle Hill, NSW.
