Consistency can be tough to achieve in any industrial process, and desuperheating steam is little different. When you need predictable condensation, though, it’s an absolute must. Fortunately, for the Komax Desuperheater, it’s not an issue thanks to one big design change over traditional desuperheating technology – six fixed mixing elements.
How It Works
When the steam begins to flow, the mixing module inside the Komax Desuperheater, dubbed the Equalizer, uses low pressure water injection to help cool it. Carefully directed upstream, when the steam hits, that flow of water reverses direction, and the two pass downstream through the mixing module. Inside are those six fixed mixing element chambers, which help to develop multiple impingement mixing zones upon exit, which means a three-stage contact process. It’s here that this unit really shines. Those chambers mean a more effective combination, and in most settings, that means the perfect value for any mixture.
Throughout the process, you’ll find absolutely no noise or vibration. Often that spells less damage to other equipment. It’s virtually maintenance free, and it works well in almost any industrial setting thanks to very little need for additional pipe lay.
