STEAM PULP HEATER
STATIC BLEACH MIXER
ClO2 Bleach Mixer
oxyozoneThe Komax Chlorine Dioxide High Substitution Bleaching System is now an established and reliable technology used by modern mills worldwide. Our unique “Triple Action Mixer” creates back mixing which produces the high shear that is needed to separate the pulp fibers. Fluidization of the pulp also occurs, allowing excellent chemical contacting which reduces chemical usage.
LOW AND MEDIUM CONSISTENCY CHLORINE DIOXIDE BLEACH MIXING SAVE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN CAPITAL INVESTMENT AND ENERGY
More and more mills in the U.S. and Canada bleaching medium consistency stock with100% chlorine dioxide have reduced their capital equipment costs by installing a single Komax fiberglass static pulp stock mixer. A low cost Komax static mixer installed upstream of the mechanical high-shear mixer acts as a pre-mixer. Chlorine dioxide solution is injected into a FRP static mixer. The four element static mixer thoroughly mixes the CLO2 into the pulp diluting it down before entering the downstream high shear mechanical mixer. This enables the pulp mill to purchase a far less expensive stainless mechanical mixer avoiding the very high cost of a mechanical titanium mixer. Savings will be well over $100,000. Mills that have installed the Komax static mixer were surprised to find that it was providing 100% of the mixing when they had to remove the high shear for repair. Most of the mills have left the mechanical mixer out of the line saving 200 h.p. The energy saved in one year equates to four times the cost of the Komax static. Added to the savings is zero maintenance for ten years of service.
