School project[edit]

Please do not edit this article until after December 14th. It is written for a student project and is being edited and up-dated after peer review. Thanks. Priya Shoor 00:22, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Note from the course instructor - The project ended in December 2006 so feel free to edit.susato (talk) 16:00, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Messages from Gokhan[edit]

Hi Priya, I found your article which is well organized and written. As you mentioned, you will need to add some references for the information you put here. You should do this by not only giving a list of references at the end but also adding those references to your text. Anyway, you did a great job! GBoran 22:50, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

The page looks to be coming along nicely. For advice on formatting, please review Wikipedia:Manual of Style. And good luck with the project.  :) --Elonka 06:53, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Something's Wrong with the page[edit]

Hello.... there is too much of horizontal scrolling required for this page... please check it out. I don't know how to edit it else would have done it myself. Elncid (talk) 07:12, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Review from Vivek[edit]

Hey Priya, the aticle has a lot of good information. It seems well researched. If you could add more images that would be good. Once you add those images of evaporators, it should be fine. Also, some of your equations need to be in the bigger font version that they have on other articles, so it seems more professional. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Vivek216 (talkcontribs) 15:25, December 5, 2006

Just as a reminder, please remember to always sign posts with four tildes: ~~~~. This adds your name and a datestamp to your posts, which makes conversations easier to follow. As an advanced technique, you can also personalize your signature, by clicking on "My preferences" at the top of the page and modifying the "Signature" box. --Elonka 03:37, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Review from Jon[edit]

There's a lot of good info here. Good job! I agree with Vivek's suggestion of the addition of diagrams or pictures. Also, the first equation you have is only explained in very loose terms. A little more explanation of what each term is and how this equation is used would be good.

The last couple of paragraphs are pretty long. If you could break them up, it might make them a little easier to follow in this context.

The last thing I have is that there are places when the tone isn't very formal. I did my best to find them and point them out (I've been using Word to insert grammatical corrections and that sort of thing, so I'll email that to you), but it would be good to reread what you have and just see if there are any spots I missed.

I agree. --Denise from the Cosby Show 06:06, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Mmmmm[edit]

May I? An evaporator does not necessarily remove water from a solution, rather removes a solvent or a liquid component whatsoever from a mixed-phase mass. In the article the word water is pervasive, and does not seem correct to me. As a specialist in evaporation, I have drafted the it:Evaporatore entry in it.wiki, and I would like to work a little in this wiki - as soon as I return from commissioning an evaporator abroad, of all plants. Of course, all help is welcome, and several hands are always more accurate and fast than only one...Ub (talk) 16:27, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

fresh water generator[edit]

what are the parts of plate type evaporator?...and what is its porpuse?

evaporator[edit]

how can i know about the steam calculations —Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.65.136.141 (talk) 12:34, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Reference desk. I assume you are talking about Steam tables or some kind of turbine equation. For that sort of thing you probably want Isotropic compression or Polytropic compression. I recommend "J Winnick" Chemical engineering thermodynamics, and a lot of study ;) User A1 (talk) 16:00, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Broader Article[edit]

this article seems to focus too much on evaporators in the context of Chemical Engineering. Evaporators are used extensively in the refrigeration industry to remove heat from cold storage facilities. As such, this article should expand on this from the perspective of the Mechanical Engineer. I will try and do some work, and if others can help, that would be great.

Proposal[edit]

According to me, some sections needs improvement on this article specially types of the evaporators. Doing research on this topic , I found many different kinds of the evaporators which are used nowadays in chemical and other industries. Also, the explanation with the diagram would be easy to understand the process. The article needs to be updated using latest reliable sources.
