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.

Surrounding the suspended magma is an annular settling zone from which a stream of mother liquor bearing fine crystals can be removed. In a continuous crystallization process employing an evaporative draft tube baffle DTB crystallizer apparatus to produce crystal product comprising.

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in a draft tube baffle crystallizer cryxtallizer cycling in the particle size distribution of the product withdrawn is reduced and the rate of production of granular size crystals is increased.

The number 7 designates a draft tube.


Effects of operating conditions on agglomeration and habit of paracetamol crystals in anti-solvent crystallization. Process for recovering terephthalic acid from pulverized product of spent polyethylene terephthalate and system for use in such process. Forced-circulation crystallizers, such as the one shown below, are evaporative crystallizers.

By sraft of the baffled zone, the operating slurry density within the crystallizer can be regulated at any desired value by controlling the slurry underflow rate and removing the remaining mother liquor from the baffle section. The drawing shows the suspension enters the crystallization apparatus via line 27 to line 22A, the thickener overflow line, which enters the crystallization vessel 1 close to the liquid level These fines are separated from the growing suspension of crystals by gravitational settling in the annular baffle zone.

Downloads General Catalogue Download. Forced-circulation crystallization is the most widely used crystallization method in industry. The configuration of the crystallizer is such that it promotes crystal growth, and can generate crystals of a larger average size than could be achieved in an FC.

It is mixed with circulating slurry within the vessel and propelled upward through the draft tube 7 via the movement of propeller 8.

DTB Crystallizer

The mother liquor is 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. The boiling action is concentrated in the center of the vessel and is well distributed across the surface by means of the vertical draft tube inlet. After this dgaft been done, the heated or diluted brine is returned to the crystallizer.

Growing crystals are brought to the boiling surface where supersaturation is most intense and growth is most rapid. DTB crystallizers are also used for the purification of organic compounds as well as the production of salts.

B1 Designated state s: The practical way is to perform a gravity settling to be able to extract and possibly recycle separately the almost clear liquid, while managing the mass flow around the crystallizer to ctystallizer a precise crhstallizer density elsewhere.

This type of crystallizer is used primarily in the production of a variety of large-size crystalline materials such as ammonium sulfate, crystallize chloride and diammonium phosphate for the fertilizer industry. Crystal size easy to control Economic due to recyclability of fines More energy efficient than forced-circulation crystallizers.

Options include baffling, a conical entrance, and an elutriation step.

Draft Tube Baffle (DTB) Crystallizer – Swenson Technology

Flue gas treatment Oil refinery technology Polymers process. Swenson Recognized with Export Leadership Award. The evaporated solvent is then condensed, cooled, and returned to the region of active crystallization.


To achieve an effective process control it is important to control the retention time and the crystal mass, to obtain the optimum conditions in terms of crystal specific surface and the fastest possible drfat. Elutriation, like baffling, removes smaller particles from the slurry, except elutriation separates particles based on weight rather than size.

Continuous crystallizing tank and continuous evaporative crystallization process. Surface-cooled crystallizers such as the one shown here are used to produce sodium chloride from caustic solutions, sodium carbonate decahydrate from waste solutions, and sodium chlorate from sodium chloride saturated solutions. Fube Process Equipment Selection and Design. Process for the crystallization of solid substances in a coarse granular form from solutions.

The thickener is normally a cyclonic separator. This is achieved by a separation of the crystals from the liquid mass, in order to manage the two flows in a different way. The fine crystals are defined as those below 20 mesh 0.

This crystallizer has been named so because xraft provides for two discharge streams, one of slurry that contains the product crystals, and another, that is mother liquor saturated solvent with a small amount of fines. Withdrawal of slurry from the crystallizer is alternately increased and decreased to keep the particle size distribution between an upper limit onset of the crest in the crystqllizer and a lower limit the onset of a fines shower.

Crystal size difficult to control. Low head loss in the internal circulation paths makes large flows at low power requirements feasible. Process and apparatus for forced circulation evaporative crystallization with large deposit inventory.
