Energy savings is a common theme when it comes to industrial plants, factories, and industries across the board. All of them are looking for higher efficiency ratings. This is what Komax set out to create, a heat exchanger, knowing that this problem was about technological advances.
The heat exchanger is expected to transfer heat between two or more liquids. Heat transfer takes place through a separating wall between fluids.
There are several applications that we can use heat exchangers for.
A heat transfer is much needed when it comes to municipal wastewater purposes specifically in municipal sludge and FOG (fat, oil, grease). Heat from outgoing digested sludge is transferred to the cold incoming sludge, fostering resiliency in anaerobic digestion for biosolids output. In addition, it also helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the sequestering of carbon.
The key feature of a heat exchanger is to save energy and preserve the environment while delivering the best possible heat. Komax saw that this was an area that needed a new solution for industries and the engineers created the Klean Wall Heat Exchanger.
They created the Komax solution to solve several problems while still maintaining efficiency, handling debris, increasing bacteriological activity, and ease of maintenance.
The Komax heat exchanger can also be used as a sludge heat exchanger to heat sludge in a recirculation loop with a digester, for the co-digestion process. This method is more thermally efficient than a shell-and-tube heat exchanger because of the Hi-pass components created within.
The Klean Wall Municipal Sludge Heater Exchanger stands apart from the crowd because of all the benefits it provides.
The Klean Wall Heat Exchanger is non-clogging, non-fouling, and does not require cleaning. However, preventive cleaning is preferred the design allows for a hydro-rod cleanout because of the pathway down the centerline.
The Komax Heat Exchanger is in thousands of installments all over the world, including plants that have severe sludge applications. If you’re looking to improve your plants; efficiency with a long-lasting heat exchanger, give the engineers at Komax a call. They can help you improve your workload to get the best results with efficient heating.
