The purpose of heat exchangers is quite simple: they are used to transfer heat from one medium to another. In a manufacturing plant, the two mediums are usually two fluids, either in direct contact or separated by a wall.
Some if the industries where a heat exchanger is used are food processing, power generation, mining, petroleum and petrochemicals, and others.
Heat is an important requirement for every industry. From melting, molding to mixing or separating, heat is required for every purpose. For this reason, heat exchangers also have an essential role in the manufacturing industry.
There are two primary types of heat exchangers – shell and tube. However, they do not offer the highest efficiency. This is why Komax heat exchangers are in great demand, just like their static mixers. The heat exchange shares some of the principles of operation with static mixers, except that they are used to transfer heat.
The reason why Komax heat exchangers are so much in demand is because they have a spiral or helix mixing element just like their static mixers.
Not only does this achieve high efficiency, but also helps in the treatment of high viscosity fluids. Komax heat exchangers are also available for treating low viscosity fluids.
The spiral mixing element increases heat transfer by up to 400 percent because of the strong radial flow increasing the refresh rate on the inner walls of the pipe. In short, Komax manufactures normal tube or shell heat exchangers but with a static mixer fitted inside.
Some of the distinguished features of the Komax heat exchanger are:
Advantages of Komax heat exchangers
When manufacturing units use Komax static mixers, they enjoy a number of benefits, such as:
Komax heat exchangers have the most sophisticated design, owing to which they provide high efficiency as well last for years without needing any servicing.
These cost-effective tools come readymade as well as custom designed. Get in touch with Komax Systems Inc to include a highly efficient heat exchanger in your manufacturing plant.
