STEAM DRIVEN ABSORBERS

Thermax steam-driven absorbers are available in single effect and double effect modes. In steam-driven absorbers, the source of heat is saturated steam at pressures in the range of 0.5 Kg/cm2 to 10 Kg/cm²
In the single effect absorber, the gain in concentration of the absorbent is achieved in single step, i.e., it has only one generator.

Operating Range

Capacities

From 50 to 2000 TR

Steam pressure

From 0.6 to 3.5 Kg/cm² (g)

Chilled water temperature

Up to 3.5 ºC (0 ºC for brine)

Heat source

Steam

In the double effect machines, the gain in concentration is achieved in two steps. The primary generator (referred as High Temperature Generator or HTG) produces vapor, whose latent heat is used to fire a secondary generator (referred as Low Temperature Generator or LTG).
