Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) Desuperheater
Energy – it’s an essential topic in the conversations of now, and many believe liquefied natural gas (LNG), is the energy source of the future. As a result, plant numbers throughout the world continue to pop up, as does the need for the technology to keep those plants functional at lower costs. Komax Systems Inc. – the one company that is keeping up with the massive increase in demand for LNG desuperheaters necessary to ensure these LNG plants are more effective than ever.
LNG Desuperheaters Provide Solutions
With the concentration of large EPC (Engineering Procurement & Construction) companies serving the Energy industry in Texas, working with our highly skilled Komax Representative in your area will provide you with the industry knowledge and application expertise to assure success for solutions including: Desuperheaters, Gas/Liquid Contactors, and Gas/Gas mixers. The LNG Desuperheaters, and or, Gas/Liquid Contactors have been specifically designed for injecting a liquid into a superheated gas stream and are manufactured from materials to match the application.
Gas or Steam desuperheaters are a must in an LNG plant setting, and for a number of plants, the Komax brand is the only place to turn.
The Komax LNG Desuperheaters
Unlike other options on the market, the Komax Desuperheater has six fixed mixing elements. Once the superheated steam comes into the Equalizer™ module and is combined with the injected cooling product, it is then divided and mixed by the elements in each of the six holes. Multiple impingement mixing zones develop at the exit, thus completing the three-stage contacting process. For more on the Desuperheater.
Technical Specifications and Available Options for
End Connections & Available Custom Options
- Flanged Ends: Flanged end connections specifically allow for easy mounting of the desuperheater into the process pipeline. As a general standard, metal desuperheaters have raised face flanges per ASME B16.5 or ASME B16.47 (for sizes larger than 24”) standards. Komax can also fabricate mixers to contain DIN (metric) flanges as well.
- Threaded Ends: Komax Systems also offers male and female NPT end connections on desuperheaters, as required.
- Weld Prep Ends: For custom configuration, Komax Systems specifically offers weld prep end connections on Desuperheaters.
*All desuperheaters per customer specification; end connection type can be made specifically per customer request.
Available Materials and Sizes
- Diameter: 2” – 48” (for sizes above 16”, contact Komax Systems for more information)
- Standard Metals: Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel, Chrome Moly (P11/P22/P91)
- Exotic Metals: Hastelloy, Inconel, Monel, Alloy 20,
- Pipe Schedule: Schedule 10 – XXS
Your Best Option
Wondering just what makes the Komax Desuperheater so good? Three stages of mixing, including our patented Equalizer™ mixing module within the desuperheater. Cooling happens almost instantly as it exits the mixing module, thus it doesn’t require the extensive downstream pipe lay length required by old-school designs. In fact, it needs less space, delivers more accurate temperature control, and reduces or eliminates thermal cycling fatigue in your piping, ensuring improved safety, less wear, and downtime.
There are no moving parts, and our steam desuperheaters offer significantly high levels of consistency. Therefore, maintenance is never an issue as the low-pressure nozzle lasts and lasts. Almost no noise or vibration can be expected, and it’s a perfect fit for limited space.
Our patented Komax Desuperheater will exceed your expectations by increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of your gas desuperheating application at a price you can afford.
