Speak to almost any company that utilizes a heat exhcanger in their line, and you’ll find one major problem – plugging. Over time, there’s a slow build-up of sludge and other solids inside the heat exchanger, and once it gets serious, the heat exchanger simply can’t do its job. The result is either removing it for a complete cleaning or wholly replacing it. Cleaning them is an expensive, time consuming job, and the simple truth is that you shouldn’t have to expect to replace a piece of equipment just because it gets dirty.
The Komax Klean-Wall Heat Exchanger, though, is different. In fact, it offers a 300% efficiency increase over standard slurry headers and tube and shell heat exchangers. The best feature of this option, though, is that it will remain clog free.
The system was designed to pass debris of up to 50% of the diameter of the pipe. In certain settings, that’s an absolute must. In fact, it can not only pass big debris, but complex debris as well, like the stringy rope-like debris that often occurs in some settings.
Passing debris is just one good feature. It can also eliminate wall buildup that often leads to clogging. Because materials tend to pack walls thickly over time, clogging becomes far more common. With the Klean-Wall Heat Exchanger, though, you get a higher level of turbulence at the boundary walls, which helps to eliminate wall build-up and fouling.
