Introducing New Efficiency in Wiped Film Evaporation & Short Path Distillation

Are you certain that you are getting the best available performance from your Wiped Film Evaporator or Short Path Distillation System? If the answer is "no" or "maybe", then you really need to evaluate the POWERFILM Rotor Technology at InCon's Toll Processing Plant and Technical Center near Chicago, IL. 

POWERFILM employs a proprietary GIG Karasek Balanced Blade design that virtually eliminates vibration, maximizes evaporation performance while minimizing wear forces during idle time periods. 

POWERFILM Rotors have provided up to 30% more capacity compared to other Wiped Film Evaporators and Short Path Evaporator in side by side evaluations. 

  • You can plan for much longer time between shutdowns. We have eliminated the most likely single point of failure in existing designs. There is no bottom bearing, so you will not need to shutdown for bearing maintenance.
  • POWERFILM Technology has reduced the residual impurity level tenfold in one application replacing a competitive rotor!
  • On a recent project, we replaced a 2 stage process with one stage of high performance POWERFILM Technology. Consider the cost savings if you can cut your hardware investments in half.

Interested? You have to call us to start the process of design, testing and technical improvement. E-mail us to get literature or call me to discuss applying this revolutionary technology in your process.

Is Your Process Limiting You?

InCon draws on our extensive experience and adds the expertise developed over decades by GIG Karasek in the design and production of Falling Film, Forced Circulation, Thin Film and Molecular Distillation Evaporators. 

Often a client will approach us with a constraint on their process such as: 

  • Unacceptable residual impurity levels 
  • High monomer level in polymer or silicone oils 
  • Off specification color 
  • Costly process equipment failures
  • Excessively high distillation temperature
  • Inadequate nutritional product yield
  • Cumbersome multi-step evaporations
  • High melt point polymer or wax

Would you like to tap into the best available separation technology for your chemistry or process area? Then you might like to know that we provided leading edge technology for: 

  • The World’s Largest Biodiesel Glycerine Dryer, replacing a failing competitor's dryer
  • Lactic Acid Purification Processes; making highest purity lactic acid at maximum recoveries 
  • Titanium & special metallurgy fabrication of evaporators, reactors and heat exchangers. Details are at 
  • Fischer-Tropsch Wax Distillation systems

If you did not call InCon, you probably paid too much for your Molecular Distillation System and you may have missed profitable opportunities to make a more valuable product.

Did you know...

InCon Process Systems (IPS) was selected for design, building, construction and commissioning for a High Nutritional Red Palm Oil Vacuum Distillation Plant in Indonesia. The plant employed two of the world’s largest Short Path Distillation Evaporators. The InCon Palm Oil Molecular Distillation Process was selected since the process could recover maximum nutritional content in Palm Oil. 

IPS can contract manufacture the same High Nutritional Red Palm Oil by Molecular Distillation in our Toll Processing Plant. Or we can recover any nutritional compound from a Biodiesel Process. 

We installed the world’s largest Biodiesel Wiped Film Evaporator Dryer to vacuum distillation process to recovery pharmaceutical grade glycerine.
Using POWERFILM Rotor Technology and IPS’s best manufacturing practice, InCon has shrunk a two-stage Wiped or Thin Film Evaporator Process to one stage. Savings on the Molecular Distillation System were 40%. 

POWERFILM Wiped Film and Short Path Evaporator Rotor Technology has increased capacity by up to 30% when replacing a competitive Wiped or Thin Film Evaporator and Short Path Evaporator.

GIG Karasek utilizes Wiped Film Evaporator and Short Path Evaporator technology in their Vacuum Distillation Lactic Acid Process and can offer clients up to 95% recovery of Lactic Acid. This Vacuum Distillation Process can maximize yield, however the final result is often dependent upon limitations peculiar to a client’s specific chemistry. 

IPS has developed a multi step process to concentrate Omega 3 Fish Oil to up to 70%. The process employs a staggered array of Vacuum Distillation Rectification feeding a Short Path Evaporator, feeding a second Short Path Evaporator, and a Wiped or Thin Film Evaporator. 

IPS and GIG Karasek can fabricate Short Path Evaporator, Wiped Film Evaporator, and Thin Film Evaporator Technology in Hastelloy, Inconel, Monel, Titanium, Zirconium or other exotic alloys. In fact GIG Karasek has been fabricating world class Titanium since 1954. Customers bring their proprietary heat exchanger, column, reactor, and falling film evaporator designs for us to fabricate.
