EFC Technology – Equipment
At COOL Separations, we develop our own EFC crystallizers, from lab scale to industrial scale set-ups. All additional equipment is skid-mounted together with the EFC crystallizer resulting in a compact and easy-to-transport construction.
The core equipment of our EFC Units is the EFC Crystallizer together with its custom designed refrigeration system and the solid-liquid separation equipment for the ice and the salt product. All our units are equipped with instruments and sensors for measuring and monitoring the relevant process parameters such as temperatures, torques, flows, levels etc. All data is logged and saved via a special made (Labview-based) software package to ensure correct data collection and a user-friendly operation of the units.
Our laboratory and pilot EFC units are semi-automated and are able to run in batch or continuous mode. Fully automated industrial scale units with a continuous operating mode are under development.
