Water Eater Model 85E®

Wastewater Evaporator

The Water Eater Model 85E is an electrically heated wastewater evaporator designed for the small to medium sized generator of wastewater. It comes in two models, the Model 85E Carbon Steel version and the Model 85E-SS 316L Stainless Steel version (tank, floor, lid, covers, and stack are 316L SS). Installation is easy consisting of only an electrical hookup and a 6" diameter vent stack. The unit can be filled three different ways: (1) Using the supplied 2" coupling on the top of the unit; (2) Remove the lid and manually pour in fluid; or (3) Using the optional 70 GPM self priming fill pump. After an initial heat up time of approximately one hour, the Model 85E will evaporate 5 gallons per hour of water. The Model 85E will automatically shut itself down via a low level control. A secondary high temperature shutoff is also provided. When a cycle is completed the waste material can either be drained via a 2" drain opening, vacuumed out of the unit through the removable lid, with a wet/dry vacuum or pump, or, if it is a solid material, scooped out. To facilitate cleanout, the interior tank of the 85E water evaporator has no obstructions (such as heating elements or stationary float mechanisms) impeding cleanout.
