One of the standout benefits of desuperheating is that it helps to reduce the cost of electric bills for your organization. This is because desuperheaters are big on recovering heat that would otherwise go to waste. Simply put, a desuperheater works by taking in cold water and sending hot water out. The hot water thus obtained can be used for different heating purposes. Desuperheaters are 30 to 40% more energy-efficient than conventional electric heaters. They are popular with food and beverage, oil and gas, pulp and paper industries. These industries benefit significantly from this environment-friendly, cost-effective, and safe heating solution.
Desuperheaters are an efficient, modern way to heat fluids through recovery. They are more efficient than traditional tank-style water heaters. Desuperheaters can be easily installed alongside industrial equipment with significant fluid heating demands.
Desuperheaters are heat exchangers that are engineered to perfection for an efficient design. It works by heating a fluid with a lower boiling point, such as water or glycol, to a higher temperature. This then vaporizes the fluid and extracts heat from the vapor. The vapor is then cooled to condense it back into liquid form before being reused in the process.
The Komax Desuperheater provides many benefits beyond generating steam for your process needs. Unlike boilers, desuperheaters do not produce harmful emissions because they don’t use fuel and only use clean water or glycol to produce steam. They also can be used in conjunction with solar power for added efficiency and sustainability.
The Komax Desuperheater is one of the most innovative patented desuperheaters in the market. It can reduce downstream requirements substantially. E.g., you can reduce from 30 pipe diameters to 10 pipe diameters ahead of the temperature probe. Thereby reducing stress on piping due to thermal cycling. It also eliminates the need for any thermal liners for the desuperheater.
