Kontro is a high-speed processor that achieves high-efficiency vaporization by forming a thin film of solvent on its cylinder wall. With no heat transmission pipes, supports, or other structural elements in its interior, scaling is minimized, and there is virtually no change in heat transmission with time. This makes it suitable for materials that change when heated. It can also be used for concentrating candy, fruit juices, and other food products.

Vaporizer is used for vaporizing water or solvent from fluids to concentrate residual substance, and there are some types. Within this category, centrifugal processor form a thin film of processed fluid on the interior wall (vaporization surface) of the heated cylinder, dramatically increasing the efficiency of vaporization. Our non-contact-type device using rotating blades on the evaporation surface is called Kontro (contact type: Sevcon). The rotating blades inside Kontro cause the processed fluid to form a uniform film. Vaporization and concentration is possible in a short span of time, because Kontro uses power agitation and centrifugal force to process fluids ranging from low to high viscosity. Kontro is suitable for continuous operation, because the processed fluid can achieve a specified degree of concentration in a single pass from the entry port to the exit port.
We offer our customers total support, from engineering through delivery and installation, to commissioning and maintenance.
In the selection of a centrifugal thin-film processor, complicated questions must be addressed concerning the state of solvents and other ingredients in the processed fluid (material properties, heat stability, viscosity, shape, etc.), and the processing volume and density at entry/exit. We choose specifications based on processed fluid data from our customers. We verify functionality in our experimental facilities, and we offer total support for achieving performance.
We offer installation, commissioning and maintenance for Kontro, and in our EPC solutions we offer integrated packages including design, procurement, and construction for Kontro and its peripheral racks, piping, electric and control systems.
Of all the Kontro models, this is the most general-purpose model, suitable for a wide range of applications. Its most important feature is that the heating body is tapered, so the film remains stable and is unlikely to tear even when the volume of fluid is reduced, near the exit port.
The following are other outstanding features.
The basic functions are the same as the horizontal Kontro, but is better suited for low degrees of concentration and larger volumes of processed fluid.
The Kontro 50 is our low-priced model; the tapered body has been straightened in both the horizontal and vertical models.
This model is suitable for low to medium-viscous fluids, and low to medium degrees of concentration. In vaporization efficiency, it is the equal of other Kontro models.
For fluids where it is difficult to decide between Kontro and Kontro 50 on the basis of process data alone, our experimental installation can be used to verify functionality and make selection easier.
This model is dramatically more capable than the vertical Kontro. The rotating blades work like screws, exerting force on the thin film, making it possible to work with High-viscous processed fluids, and fluids in a thixotropic state.
