Re: Flash Evaporation?

A significant problem with evaporators is constant scaling of and fouling by carbonates .... anytime seawater is raised above ~153F carbonates precipitate. Usually in 'industry' flash evaporation for the production of 'purity' water is preceded by demineralization / RO, etc. and thats for 'fresh' water infeed.
