LCI awarded patent for thin film evaporators

LCI Corp today announces that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued Patent  10,384,145 for thin film evaporators, wiped film evaporators, and short path evaporators. Thin Film Evaporation is a specialized process that quickly separates more volatile from less volatile components using indirect heat transfer and mechanical agitation of a flowing product film under controlled conditions. Inventors Jessica Astoria, John Fields, and James Horton have created an energy efficient solution for maintaining a consistent product temperature throughout the entire evaporation process. The invention provides a number of benefits and solutions, including:

  • Increase energy efficiency
  • Reduce cost of installation by reducing or eliminating preheater auxiliary equipment
  • Reduce cost of energy consumption
  • Reduced installation footprint
  • Reduces number of pressure vessels,  pressure relief valves, stream traps, and external piping

LCI Corp has a prototype test unit at their Test Center located in Charlotte, North Carolina. LCI Corp provides testing, equipment, and process expertise for industry leading companies around the world. LCI Corp, (formerly Luwa) is continuing to innovate and provide solutions worldwide since 1961.

Press Release - New Website

PRESS RELEASE – NEW WEBSITE LAUNCH ANNOUNCEMENT – LCI Corp. Launches updated website.

We are pleased to announce the launch of our updated website! After many months of hard work and dedication from our team at LCI and Nederman.

Our primary goal during the redesign process was to create a more valuable, user-centric and responsive resource across all platforms and devices. Specifically, we wanted to focus on making it easier for our users to learn and locate valuable information about our technical solutions for their particular application or industry not only at their desk but on mobile devices.

We have reorganized information into products, applications, parts / service, and test / design categories. Case studies have been added under the application pages to highlight completed projects and the value add created for our clients as a result.

Keep up to date on our latest workshops, trade shows, seminars and company announcements in our news section.

We hope you enjoy our new look!

For any suggestions, questions, comments please contact us.
