Is your company looking to leverage heat while saving energy? The issue of saving energy while maintaining efficiency is a common problem that needs actual solutions when it comes to factories in the industrial sector that use heater exchangers. Let’s look at the Klean-Wall Heat Exchanger.
A heat exchanger is a system that allows heat from a fluid (gas or liquid) to pass to a second fluid. They can use heat exchangers in both cooling and heating processes. Thus, separating the fluids to prevent mixing or can come in direct contact depending on the application.
Heat exchangers maximize the natural process of heat transfer from high temperatures to lower temperatures. It can also transfer heat directly and indirectly.
There are many industries that rely on heat exchangers in the production process which include, Biofuel, Oil and Chemical, Municipal Wastewater, Petroleum, and Steam Power Plants.
Using technological advancements, Komax has created a solution to produce maximum steam heat efficiency. It will leverage heat, save energy, and provide cost savings to industries. The Komax Klean-Wall Heat Exchanger is an advanced inline mixing system.
The design allows for a different type of mixing within the heat transfer system so that pants can meet their specific mixing requirements.
There are several differences between the Komax Klean-Wall Heat Exchanger and traditional heat exchangers. Here are the reasons the Komax design is a significantly improved option.
The Komax Klean-Wall Heat Exchanger has hi-pass mixing elements within the design. These elements create turbulence at the pipe walls and reduce boundary layers. The purpose of this is to specifically ensure that the system maintains consistent operating efficiency immediately and over time.
One of the main issues with traditional heat exchangers is that there tends to be clogging of debris, causing ineffectiveness. The Komax-Klean Wall System was designed to improve upon this common situation by resisting clogging and passing debris up to 50% of the diameter of the pipe. It can even pass stringy rope-like debris without plugging. The heat exchanger eliminates wall build-up and can pass municipal sludge and other materials as well as making it a universal product.
Debris will pack the walls on traditional heat exchangers, causing efficiency to degrade over time. The Komax design specifically combats this with a high level of turbulence. The turbulent sludge scavenges the wall surface and thus removes fouling in the process.
The Klean-Wall Heat Exchanger design ensures increased bacteriological activity and improved digesting. The shearing and sludge mixing makes this possible.
The Komax Klean-Wall Heat Exchanger does not require cleaning and minimal maintenance. This was a key feature, as most plants do not have extra time built into production for constant maintenance and cleaning without seriously affecting the efficiency.
Komax wanted to help solve the problems for the plants that need a more effective process while saving energy and preserving the environment. If you would like more information or a custom solution Komax can help. They have installed the Komax Klean-Wall Heat Exchangers in plants worldwide. Whether it is plant efficiency, energy savings, or a more cost-effective product, they can help not only with heat exchangers, but static mixers, and desuperheaters.
