Heat exchangers are commonly used in a variety of industries as they create energy efficiency. The Industrial Manufacturing industry has found that technology in heat exchangers makes their plants more effective and efficient than ever before. Specifically, with heating, cooling, condensing, and mixing.
The commons problems that face industrial manufacturing typically include clogging, fouling, or wall buildups. With newer technology, the issues that the plant is facing will be eliminated. It also can save up to 300% of energy as compared to standard slurry heaters or shell exchangers.
One of the most common complaints of those using traditional heat exchangers is wall buildup and fouling issues. Sludge and other materials pack the walls thick. This constant build-up ends up causing fouling, increasing the thermal resistance, and lowering the overall heat transfer coefficient of the exchanger equipment.
This can also impede fluid flow and increase pressure drop across them. However, the Klean-Wall heat exchanger also referred to as the Komax sludge heat exchanger. The design is to resist any such accumulation. It thereby succeeds in maintaining high efficiency and eliminates fouling.
It’s shearing and sludge features contribute to the increased bacteriological activity helping to improve digestion. Furthermore, you do not ever need to clean these heat exchangers. If you feel compelled to, you may clean them easily due to the hi-pass design, it is not a requirement.
Due to the upgraded technology, the heat exchanger can be 50% smaller than the standard is. These high-efficiency heat exchangers are also immune to clogging, which adds to the benefit that industrial plants find so appealing.
They utilize the sludge heat exchanger for mixing and heating municipal sludge, FOG, and manure for aerobic/anaerobic digestion purposes. The sludge to sludge heat exchanger can also be for reclaiming heat from hot outgoing digested sludge to heat the cold incoming sludge. The sludge heat exchanger enhances biogas production and also helps in the production of Class A biosolids.
The Komax Klean Wall Heat Exchanger heats sludge in a recirculation loop with a digester, utilized for the co-digestion process. The sludge heat exchanger is more thermally efficient than a straight shell-and-tube heat exchanger.
Effective industrial equipment can carry out several functions in a large variety of industries. The Klean-Wall Heat Exchanger has found countless applications across industries like agriculture, chemical, heavy industry, and more. Also, in other everyday cases where heating or cooling is a need, such as swimming pools, data centers.
Both micro-networks and urban networks have witnessed the high use of heat exchangers for heating and cooling processes. Sources of how networks include superheated water, waste incineration plants, thermal solar panels, oil, and gas.
In the agro-industry, juices at ambient temperature must be heated from the early stage to that of evaporation.
A sludge heat exchanger also comes handy in the refining of oils, esterification of biodiesel, and pasteurization of dairy products.
