HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Jan. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Industries often have to get creative when it comes to building a more efficient business, and Komax has long specialized in the technology to help a wide variety of industries do just that. Thanks to the Komax Hotshot™ Inline Steam Heater, Komax is working to save the pulp and paper industry like no other.
Tackling the Headlines
A 2017 report from the University of Maine found that the industry has remained just as valuable as it was in 2011 over the past six years. The report concluded that the industry will do more than $8 billion in sales in the upcoming year.
A big part of the continued success in the face of the declining need for pulp and paper has been the introduction of more efficient systems like the Komax Hotshot™ Inline Steam Heater.
The Komax Difference
The Komax Hotshot™ Inline Steam Heater offers close to 100% efficiency, and it has been rated to offer a 25% higher efficiency capacity than other heat exchangers on the market. A breakthrough in heating and mixing technology, it is a compact, steam heater with no moving parts. Steam and cold water are instantly mixed by six radially chambered static mixing elements. Very little noise and no vibration result from the process.
"We've designed a direct steam injection option that comes at a very low capital cost to today's cash-strapped companies," said Sameer Kshirsagar/Sr. Applications Specialist. "It means an unlimited supply of hot water instantly and a precise temperature control. We've installed it in many mills across the country already with great success."
If the pulp and paper industry wants to remain sustainable, big changes may have to happen, and Komax is working to provide the equipment necessary to do just that.
