One of the biggest problems in wastewater treatment facilities across the globe is the constant buildup of sludge. Because it can pack a thick coating along the walls, continual maintenance on the surrounding equipment and tanks is often necessary. Preventing that maintenance these days is absolutely key thanks to smaller than ever budgets and other ongoing problems. The best solution? The Komax Klean-Wall System.
What Is It?
The Klean-Wall is a state-of-the-art heat exchanger. Unlike standard tube and shell exchangers, though, it’s was designed to pass debris instead of getting clogged when debris enters the system. In fact, it was designed to pass debris that takes up more than 50% of the pipe, even if you’re dealing with stringy, rope-like debris that will clog nearly everything else. More importantly, though, the technology involved stops the problems often associated with wall buildup. The Klean-Wall creates a higher level of turbulence, even right at the boundary wall. The result? The continual accumulation that often happens is virtually eliminated.
Besides keeping those tank walls cleaner, the Klean-Wall has other benefits to offer as well. Standard installation is inside a circulation loop, which means less retention time, leading to higher efficiency ratings. Additionally, cleaning is not required with this unit. While you certainly can clean it with a hydro-rod thanks to the Hi-Pass design, you’ll never feel like you have to spare the personnel to do so because it simply won’t clog.
