Device and Method for Evaporating Liquid Media
Dr. Schubert, Dr. Brandner
The invention relates to a device for evaporating liquid media, for example a starting material for a fuel-cell fuel. The device comprises: at least one first heating part for heating a liquid medium, whereby said first part has at least one channel for conducting the medium and at least one first heating device; at least one second heating part for the additional heating of the heated medium, preferably to a predetermined temperature, whereby said second part has at least one channel for conducting the medium, and at least one second heating device; and at least one intermediate chamber between a first heating part and a second heating part and/or between two first heating parts and/or between two second heating parts for homogenising and/or vortexing and/or further evaporating and forwarding the heated medium from the outlet of at least one channel of a heating part to the inlet of at least one channel of a subsequent heating part. The invention also relates to a corresponding method for evaporating a medium.
