StilmasoffertworangesofVapourCompressionStills:
theBDserieswithmediumspeedturbocompressors,capacityrangefrom10024,000l/hr;
theFAHRserieswithlowspeedvolumetriccompressors,capacityrangefrom504,500l/hr.
Both types produce distilled water for injectable use which meets the latest requirements of the
internationalpharmacopeiasincludingUSP,EPandJP.

OperatingPrinciples

VapourCompressionStillsfollowasimpleoperation:
Preheated feed water is evaporated in a vertical shell and
tubeheatexchanger(tubeside)(8)
Thesteamflowsintotheseparationchamber(13)wherethe
decontaminationoccurs(dropletandconsequentlyendotoxin
reduction) The resultant pure, dry steam is drawn off by the
compressor(7)andreturnedunderslightpressuretotheshell
sideofthemainheatexchanger.
This pressurized steam condenses in the exchanger,
transferringitslatentheattotheincomingflowoffeedwater

providedbythecompressor.
The condensed WFI is sent to a hydrostatic column (9) for
degassingbeforefinallybeingpressurizedbyasanitarypump

sensible heat in this WFI can be recovered via a sanitary

VapourCompressionMisconceptions
There are some misconceptions regarding Vapour Compression
Stills when compared to Multi Effect Stills. Below some of these
clarified:

Multi Effect Stills operate at higher temperatures and are
thereforemoreeffectiveatmicrobialandendotoxinremoval?
WRONG Multi Effect Stills and Vapour Compression Stills are
bothequallyeffective.Thetemperaturedifferenceisduetothe
different thermodynamic processes. The last effect of an ME
