Komax has always been a bit of an odd duck. Our static products are unlike others, and though they are a bit of an outcast, they are much better and have quickly become the industry standard. The case of our Inline Steam Heater is a particularly romantic one, a tale that deserves to be kept in mind.
When a paper mill was really down in the dumps and having problems with their production, they turned to us with a plea for help and innovation. We were obliged to offer assistance, not only with our products, but with our forward-thinking ideology to help progress this company and ultimately, the entire paper industry.
The problem was simple, yet the solution was elusive. Our friend in the paper industry was having constant breakdowns and inconsistent output, a problem they desperately wanted to solve. Working together with an eye on perfection and low maintenance, we came up with our highly versatile and resilient Inline Steam Pulp Heater. This addition of heat, along with our mixing technology, temporarily decreased the viscosity of the adhesive chemicals thus allowing better drainage and a consistently top-tier product.
Our newfound friends in the paper industry would gladly have paid handsomely for this dependable and effective Steam Heater, yet our static technology and simple design ended up saving them $1,000,000 dollars a year. Our product worked to increase output while drastically decreasing production cost and upkeep. It was truly a match made in heaven. Once the effectiveness of our Steam Pulp Heater was demonstrated, they swept through the paper industry replacing outdated parts.
Our innovation has decreased price for both consumer and producer, all while drastically reducing the carbon footprint of paper production. We are very glad the industry turned to us for help because we rely on weeding out inefficient systems and replacing them with significantly better options. Our partnering with the paper industry was just a small step in our crusade to maximize production efficiency, yet we still hold dearly this connection.
