Intube Falling Film Evaporators
A key factor in the successful operation of an intube falling film evaporator is the uniform distribution of feed to all tubes and the uniformity of flow around the periphery of the tubes.
The film shown to the left was formed using only an orifice plate located above the tubesheet. This film is unacceptable due to poor fluid distribution and random film breaks around the periphery of the tube.
The falling film shown to the right uses the same orifice plate but with the tubes extended above the tubesheet. This M & L innovation adds nothing to the cost of the unit with the resultant film being uniform and stable. Heat transfer to the thin film is high with a holdup and time of contact low which is of great advantage in handling heat sensitive liquids. Evaporation at very low absolute pressures is possible since there is no hydrostatic head to affect the boiling temperature. All M & L distribution devices are tested in our research laboratory prior to production.

SUCTION BELLS & SUCTION HEATERS
M & L Suction Bells are important accessories in any oil burning system, upon which the success or failure of the entire system may depend. Their function is to pre-warm the oil in cold weather so as to permit pumping to the oil heater. They are economical units, very simply installed within the storage tank.
M & L Suction Bells are, in effect, localized heating devices with piping connections arranged so that the oil is withdrawn and excess heated oil is returned through it. This combination of coil heating, using steam or hot water, and the return of the excess heated oil from the oil pre-heater and burner system, affords localized heating without wasteful heating of the entire tank contents.

Cross Flow Fuel Oil Heaters
For steam service only
These compact units are exclusive M&L developments, particularly recommended for high steam or oil pressures. Due to the high turbulence of oil achieved by the transverse baffling, these heaters have high capacities per square foot.
