Beverage Vapor Compression Distillation



Aqua-Chem manufactures 4 standard models of Vapor Compression Distillers and is capable of designing a system that will meet your requirements. The innovative design delivers reduced energy consumption and has less stringent feedwater requirements when compared to other distillation processes like multiple-effect systems, making Aqua-Chem Vapor Compression Distillers a popular and sustainable choice for water purification. All components are accessible from floor-level, with the compressor and pump convenient located at the edge of the skid for easy serviceability. Aqua-Chem utilizes low-speed compressor technology, which results in cooler bearing temperatures and less downtime.
