SMPT Multiple Effect Distiller


BRAM-COR Multiple Effect Distillers Mod. SMPT are designed and manufactured according to cGMP to produce compendial Water for Injection. Each unit contains a number of boiling columns (or effects) with the first column producing pure steam, which is condensed and re-distilled  in the following columns decreasing the operational costs.


Heating for evaporation and cooling for condensation processes are performed by double tube sheet (DTS) exchangers. Condensation is achieved by means of the thin-falling film technology. The process is repeated in each column: the higher the quantity of columns  the lower overall the consumption of the equipment. The quantity of columns therefore does not influence the quality nor the output of the equipment. A special labyrinth-separator installed at the top of each column separates the steam generated by the evaporation process from entrained substance in the steam itself. The result is a pure, “dry”, pyrogen-free steam, condensed in compendial Water for Injection.

The first column of the Still may be used to produce alternatively or even at same time, also Clean Steam. Pressure vessels are designed according to ASME and PED regulation and the equipment features:

  • Double tube sheet heath exchangers
  • Certified AISI 316L stainless steel mirror-polished and passivated product contact surfaces
  • AISI 304 frame, jackets  and control board
  • PTFE gaskets
  • Pneumatic valves with Teflon membranes and AISI 316 L SS polished body
  • ASTM C-795 – compliant insulation.

Capacities range: from 50 to 15.000 lph with three to ten columns.
