Columbia Energy developed a nuclear-grade wiped film evaporator (WFE) system to consolidate and/or reduce liquid wastes prior to final treatment processing. We designed, built, and tested both a pilot and full-scale evaporator.
The technology provides low-temperature processing and produces near drinking water standard condensate. The equipment is designed to offer both transportable and permanent configuration. This technology would allow multiple units to be deployed in a parallel configuration to adjust to varying concentrates and quantities.
