Paper is one of the most ubiquitous products in any business. It’s used in packaging, printing, transportation, record keeping, and countless other areas. For such a simple product, you might assume that the manufacturing process must be fairly straightforward. While the pulp and paper industries have streamlined their processes significantly over time, it’s still not an easy process. Perhaps surprisingly for some people, steam is a crucial part of the pulp and paper operation, and Komax has the steam heating technology to meet the needs of your business.
Many steam injection systems utilize smart technology in order to maintain energy and production costs. Steam can be a very difficult product to maintain efficiently because it can be very difficult to control. Excess heat can waste energy and also cause damage to other systems and products. Water needs to be used productively, and you’ll want to minimize any downtime that is needed for maintenance. By using steam injected hydroheaters, you can maintain precise temperature control during the heating process. Greater control means a dramatic drop in wasted energy.
Steam is used in the process needed for bleaching the paper. recovering water, cooking starch, and heating liquor. Not only does Komax offer steam injection devices that can be used in this process, it also has a variety of desuperheaters that are used to reduce superheated materials to a manageable level. Desuperheaters create consistent and controlled steam temperatures in addition to the initial injection.
Komax has considerable experience in the production and installation of these technologies. Some companies who use them do not install or maintain them properly resulting in damage or inefficient power management. Contact Komax to ensure that you have the right equipment and the correct installation as well.
