No matter the industry, the push for energy savings and sustainability within plants and companies is a big deal. Within plants, saving energy and working more efficiently are the two major factors that they are trying to solve within the equipment and process. Heat Exchangers are a solution that many plants and industries are using as a tool that will help solve these problems. Here is a look at the Klean Wall heat exchanger and the advancing technology that is being made.
A heat exchanger allows for heat to pass from a liquid or gas into another fluid without the mixing of the two. A heat exchanger can work in cooling or heating applications. An exchanger can transfer heat directly or indirectly as well. Therefore, heat transfer takes place through a separating wall between fluids.
There are several industries that rely on heat exchangers for their applications, such as:
For plants looking for higher efficiency, the Klean Wall Heat Exchanger was designed with you in mind. The technology gives a 300% increase over traditional slurry heaters and tube and shell exchangers. The installation of the Klean Wall Heat Exchanger is best in a circulation loop for a large digester heater reducing retention time up to 50%.
Clogging is a major issue with applications and traditional heat exchangers. The Komax design does not clog even the stringy debris that typically creates plugging. The exchanger can pass up to 50% of the diameter of the pipe.
The bonus of the Klean Wall Heat Exchanger is that there is no cleaning required. The design is specifically about creating ease of use and a more productive line. However, if one would want to do preventive cleaning, the Hi-Pass design has a clear pathway for a hydro-rod down the centerline.
Municipal sludge can buildup on the walls over time and with thick walls, the heat exchanger is not as effective. It has a high level of turbulence at the boundary walls that help eliminate this build-up. The turbulent sludge is regularly scavenging the wall surface to help eliminate fouling.
With improved digesting because of the shearing and sludge mixing applications will see an increase in bacteriological activity.
If your plant and applications need to save energy and increase efficiency, then the Komax Klean Wall Heat Exchanger is the solution you are looking for. It is non-fouling, non-clogging equipment that promotes a self-cleaning environment. The Komax design delivers the best possible heat. The engineers can customize it to meet your specific needs. They have installed their equipment in plants worldwide to make a difference in production, and they are ready to help you. Even in severe sludge applications, their design will work.
