Tag Archives: mechanical vapor compression

Is the evaporation method by which a compressor is used to compress and thus increase the pressure of the steam produced. Since the pressure increase of the steam also generates an increase in the steam temperature, the same steam can serve as the heating medium for the liquid being concentrated from which the vapor was generated to begin with. This makes this evaporation method very energy efficient.
