Below is just one example of how Komax Systems, Inc. provided an optimal energy efficient mixing solution to a client within your industry:
In 2009, Directive 074 was put in place by the ERCB (Energy Resources Conservation Board) in Alberta. This outlined specific criterion with timelines that Oil Sands operators needed to comply with the new Oil Sands Tailings regulations. At the same time our Water/Wastewater Treatment Applications Engineer received and inquiry regarding an application of mixing polymer with a clay slurry in an Oil Sands Settling Pond north of Fort McMurray. Known by industry leaders as Tailings Reduction or treatment this application called for a low cost, maintenance free, energy efficient way to speed up the reclamation process of the tailings ponds, a mixture of mostly clay and sand as a result of bitumen extract in the oil-up industry.
To mix the polymer with the clay slurry for the desired results Komax Systems, Inc. factored in the flow rates, density and viscosity to calculate and design the patented Hi-Pass™ Static Mixer. 12” in diameter made of Carbon Steel housing four (4) Hi-Pass™ mixing elements with an additive port.
The polymer was injected upstream of the Hi-Pass™ elements creating a shearing action with the clay slurry inducing a chemical reaction to effectively remove/treat their effluent tailings. Komax Systems, Inc. made by design with no fouling over 100 of these 12” Hi-Pass™ Static Mixers from 2009-2011 that were placed inline by this industry leading company to comply and pave the road to reduce tailing ponds and their carbon footprint.
