Desuperheaters perform a seemingly simple task of cooling superheated steam, but they play a very critical role in every industry.
This is because superheated steam cannot be used for several purposes like heating or heat transfer. For these purposes, steam needs to be of a lower temperature. A desuperheater accomplishes this task by injecting water into the steam flow.
Popular for all the right reasons
Komax desuperheaters are used around the world in a number of industries. Because of the variety of essential industrial equipment that Komax manufactures, they are highly regarded the world over, and their products used in every industry.
Much like their static mixers, their desuperheaters are also recognized and used across the globe.
Komax desuperheaters are built for industries such as power, refining, food and beverages, pulp and paper, plastics, and pharmaceuticals. All Komax desuperheaters are custom made for each application, which ensures flawless service for years.
Some of the advantages of Komax desuperheaters are:
They have no moving parts. Much like a static mixer, desuperheaters have no moving parts, and require no specialized skills for operation. This makes them simple and easy to use for every manufacturing unit, whether big or small.
They don’t require electricity. Energy consumption is often a big worry for a lot of plants. But with desuperheaters, no matter how often or how long you use them, there is never any extra energy consumption because they don’t require electricity to run. This also makes them easier to maintain and cuts down on costs.
They come in various types, sizes, and configurations. As mentioned earlier, desuperheaters are custom designed for every industry and application. No two desuperheaters are meant for the same application. When clients approach Komax for a desuperheater, they must describe the purpose for which the equipment will be used to get a custom fit.
Designed to fit in
They are compact. Not all manufacturing units have plenty of space. Smaller plants often have a hard time trying to install larger machinery in their limited space.
With desuperheaters, that isn’t a problem because they are compact and need little space to fit. No matter how small a plant, a desuperheater can always be designed to fit in.
The best in the business
They require no thermal liner, except during emergency dump applications. Desuperheaters are safe, efficient, and have a high turnaround rate. Whether your plant is small or large, a desuperheater from Komax can take your production rate and energy savings to a new level.
