Sewage – nobody wants to deal with it, but if it isn’t done properly we all pay the cost. Fortunately, waste management is helped along with quality products, such as the mixers, heaters and digesters produced by Komax, ensuring our communities maintain a high standard of living when it comes to waste. Want to see how we help this industry thrive? Read on!
Komax helps by tackling the issue of energy. Recycling waste means energy has to come from somewhere to heat the inputs, stimulate bacterial digestion, etc. The keys to success here are using products that get the slurry to the optimum temperature quickly and keep it there for maximum sanitary effectiveness. A Komax Scepter Tank Heater or Klean Wall Heater do just that while taking less effort, meaning a municipality can actually save on the energy it needs to begin the mixing process.
There are also ways to save energy during the process of mixing itself. Once mixing has begun, anything that can help reduce the amount of energy needed to complete the job will also maximize your ability to manage the waste safely. Our mixers agitate slurry far better than other options by keeping sediment suspended within the digester and at the proper temperature. In some cases, we have seen as much as 50% more bacterial activity!
Of course with any slurry comes the issue of sludging and fouling. Our products do not get snagged up by clogging and the downtime of maintenance because of their clean-in-place technology, but also because they have no moving parts. This innovative design means your production goes on longer and with fewer interruptions – and your workforce is not regularly exposed to contaminants via constant maintenance!
By ensuring the waste management process is efficient and productive, we help keep communities safe while performing a difficult task.
