Sometimes, less is more. In the case of Komax systems, less power, often combined with more efficiency, will result in more productivity for your business across a wide variety of industries.
The concept, of course, is simple. Why waste energy when the laws of physics will do the job?
For example, the Scepter Tank Heater—unlike tank heaters with moving parts—is static. The unit is inserted into a tank of liquid, and uses momentum of steam to circulate liquid. Not only is less energy required because of the absence of moving parts, but the Komax Heater also takes less time to heat the water. One of our industrial client’s engineer team calculated that a Komax Scepter Heater would raise the temperature of water sixty degrees in thirty minutes. After installation, the team was surprised to learn that the Komax heater finished the job in six minutes—all without the noise pollution caused by alternative heaters. Less is more.
An in-line static mixer saves power costs too. A Utah-based company had used two tanks—a neutralization tank and a smoothing tank—to lower the pH of runoff from their plant. These two tanks were extraordinarily inefficient, both using an excessive amount of space (four-hundred square feet) and energy (65,000 kilowatt-hours per year). This led to a $25,000 annual maintenance cost. The Komax static mixture used gravity to do the work, and took up about three feet. Less is more.
Across the board, Komax System prides itself in reducing or eliminating the number of moving parts in a wide range of fluid-mixing solutions. Less moving parts can result in more efficient fluid mixing for your company’s work. Over one hundred thousand installations across the world since 1973 have shown that less is more.
