In the first Galicos module, the recirculating gas stream absorbs evaporation heat and some (clean) vapor from the contaminated hot fluid.
In the second Galicos module, this gas stream condenses in the cooler and cleaner liquid and the absorbed evaporation heat is released to the liquid as condensation heat.
Besides the intended liquid-liquid heat transfer also a relatively small amount of liquid is recovered from the contaminated liquid.
The heat exchange capacity depends on the (average) temperature
- high heat transfer capacity (W / m². K)
- suitable for heavily contaminated liquids
- easy to clean
- makes recovery of low-grade energy cost-effective
- Low own energy consumption
- practically no maintenance
