The GEA turbulence with draft tube and baffle crystallizer is the typical modern type of crystallizer in the industry. This is a typical model of mixing tank crystallizer. Draft tube is mounted inside, allowing crystals which are growing to be sent efficiently to the evaporation. In a continuous crystallization process employing an evaporative draft tube baffle (DTB) crystallizer apparatus to produce crystal product, the improvement which.

The publication also teaches that if the seed exceeds 20 mesh 0. Growing crystals are brought to the boiling surface where supersaturation is most intense and growth is most rapid. Country of ref document: A scraped surface crystallizer consists of a jacketed pipe in which a cooling medium between the pipe wall and bffle jacket remove heat from the slurry, causing crystallization.

It was found that the crystals in the suspension must be a mixture of medium sized crystals 14 to 10 mesh and smaller sized below 14 Tyler mesh.

Draft Tube Baffle (DTB) Crystallizer – Swenson Technology

The two DTB crystallizers shown below are used to produce ammonium sulfate. The turbulence DTB crysrallizer has been studied widely in crystallization theory, and can be modelled with accuracy.

ES Kind code of ref document: The GEA turbulence with draft tube and baffle crystallizer is the typical modern type of crystallizer in the industry.

The destruction of the crysrallizer particles is achieved either by heating or by diluting the brine containing these particles. The mother liquor drfat returned to the suction of the propeller circulator after the fines have been destroyed by heating or mixing with dilute feed or water, depending on the flowsheet. Home Menu Videos Contributors License. Since the withdrawal rate varies, it is inferred that the addition rate of these fine crystals is not constant.


The trend of modern agriculture is to employ bulk blends, i. DTB units are also crstallizer successfully for crystallization from reaction, such as fertilizers made by the neutralization of an acid with a base, because of their high level of internal mixing and the ability to introduce the reactants into a zone of high turbulence.

Production of large crystals has been made easier with the introduction of the draft tube baffle crystallizer DTB. A description of a typical apparatus and its normal operation are given below.

These types of crystallizers are classified as mixed-suspension, mixed-product-removal MSMPR crystallizers. Water vapor is removed via line After this has been done, the heated or diluted brine is returned to the crystallizer. The process of any of claims 1, 2 or 3 wherein said suspension of crystals in a solution is fed in an amount whereby the weight of crystals is 8 to 20 crysgallizer of the weight of the product withdrawn in step f.

The design of this crystallizer is described in U. Downloads General Catalogue Download. Scraped surface crystallizers are often grouped tubf in assemblies, as shown below.


Main Office Swenson Technology, Inc. Flow is controlled by the flowmeter A continuous crystallizer and a continuous evaporative crystallization process. The key assumption of an MSMPR crystallizer is that the slurry is perfectly mixed and uniform throughout the system.

Process and apparatus for forced circulation evaporative crystallization with large deposit inventory. Year of fee payment: DE Date of ref document: Method for producing a coarse-grained ammonium sulfate product by crystallization and facility for performing the method.

Evaporation of solvent water takes place close to the liquid level 14 induced by a vacuum created in the vapor space The DT is used for some baffls of flash cooling operations, where the main objective is to provide a well-mixed volume. DE Free format text: The drawing shows the suspension enters the crystallization apparatus via line 27 to line 22A, the thickener overflow line, which enters bafflr crystallization vessel 1 close to the liquid level There is also production of considerable quantities of fine crystals at these low points.


They are used primarly for the crystallization of melts. DTB crystallizers drart also used for the purification of organic compounds as well as the production of salts.

Method of production of metallic granules, products obtained and a device for the application of the said method. These fines are separated from the growing suspension of crystals by gravitational settling in the annular baffle zone. They are normally used for producing large size crystals of ammonium sulphate, potassium chloride, diammonium chloride etc.

Drafh, this method does not eliminate cycling; but reacts to it to increase total production of large crystals. A process for the preparation of a coarse-grained ammonium sulfate product by crystallization and plant for carrying out the method.

In fube typical operation of the evaporative DTB crystallizer, the vessel is about 24 feet in diameter and is about 50 feet drqft. Crystal slurry is removed via line 17 by the suction of pump 18 and ‘ discharged to a thickener 19 by line 17a. The circulation through the external fines dissolving circuit provided by pump 12 is about 10, gallons per minute.

Draft Tube Baffle Crystallizer – Swenson Technology

The description and examples are written for crystallization of ammonium sulfate; but the same type of apparatus may be used for crystallization of potassium chloride, potassium sulfate, sodium chloride and other crystalline materials. Continuous crystallizing tank and continuous evaporative crystallization process.

This invention relates to a process for crystallization in a draft tube baffle crystallizer wherein cycling in the particle size distribution of the product withdrawn is reduced and the rate of production of granular size crystals is increased.

DTB Crystallizer

Method and device for producing a coarse-grained ammonium sulfate product crystallisate. Forced-circulation crystallizers, such as the one shown below, are evaporative crystallizers. We have found that both the size and quantity of the crystals are important.
