Waste effluent is a big target for environmentalists looking to critique production facilities. More than that and also overlooked by critics, companies strive for environmentally conscious practices in order to reach for maximum efficiency and a renewable market. Although effluent is necessary, the way you treat such wastewater can lead to less overall waste and better efficiency of your production.
Neutralizing wastewater has previously fallen to a multi-tank system requiring lots of energy, space, and time. No longer is this the case with Komax’s Teflon and Kynar static mixers. Where there was once a propeller mixer and smoother tank, a process taking up tons of electricity and floor space, there is now a simple addition to the pipeline that does this instantaneously and all in one process.
Komax’s lined static mixers transport this process to the backburner with no moving parts, no electrical input, and no maintenance required thus eliminating tons of expense. Komax Mixer’s independent nature means that all the mixing happens within the unit and needs no downstream pipe lay for completion of the process. pH probes can then be positioned just 2-4 times the diameter of the pipe downstream for accurate and non-fouling readings.
Previous mixing systems subjected components to the concentrated sulphiric acid and although the concentration isn’t super corrosive, over time it would cause problems. Komax mixers have full protection from this or other acids since they use either Teflon or Kynar coating. At Komax, we will make these mixers with whichever coating best fits your need.
Working in an industry with waste automatically puts a spotlight on your practice, but we know that you are striving for the safest and most responsible practices. That is why at Komax not only do we want to help you produce responsibly, but also our products with save you tons of money and perform better.
