Low-temperature concentration (vacuum environment), extremely short product residence time (less than 1 sec.) within the equipment, high concentration rate in a compact equipment make “EVAPOR” the best choice for the processing of heat sensitive products.
Suited for heat sensitive, highly viscous and foaming products:
Best final product quality due to low temperature evaporation under vacuum, very thin and homogenous film liquid (less than 0.1mm) formed by centrifugal force (over 200G) of high-speed evaporation rotor and extremely short residence time (less than 1 second).
Instantaneously evaporation at low temperatures minimizes product quality deterioration
High heat transfer coefficient resulting in a high evaporation capacity
Wide range of applications including concentration, evaporation, deodorizing, distillation, stripping, degassing, dealcoholization and solvent removal
Wide variety of options such as especial grades of stainless steel and surface finishes, customized automation systems, touch operation screen, data recorder, explosion-proof design, auxiliary tanks and apparatuses, etc.
Compact, space saving design and long operation life
Low installation costs, low maintenance costs, ready for immediate use
Easy operation, product inspection, maintenance and cleaning
Evaporation surface can be monitored during operation through the sight glasses and the rotor housing can be easily opened for cleaning and verification meeting sanitary requirements such as HACCP and GMP.

As an engineering company, OKAWARA’s aim is to develop and provide the optimum combination of quality, safety and environmental technologies that will enhance the value of our customers’ business while also contribute to the progress of society at large.
OKAWARA’s commitment to always provide the best equipment begins with a full understanding of the customer’s product and its unique needs. This often means testing the product to understand its unique thermal profile and handling characteristics. Learning in this process will be applied out through the design, engineering and manufacturing of the equipment.
Customized design requirements often include precise condition for airflow and temperature uniformity, uniformly heated jackets, uniform coefficient of heat transfer, uniform moisture content and temperature distribution throughout the products, customized automation solutions, special grades of steel and surface finishes, energy saving, highly specific PLC based control systems for monitoring among others.
The combination of over 85 years of thermal processing expertise with product test data results in a tailored equipment perfectly matched to the customer’s needs.
