Mokon (Buffalo, NY, US) is emphasizing the redesign of its Duratherm MAX water system line. The new design incorporates a top air discharge to direct waste heat away from personnel, features increased mechanical compartment ventilation, offers greater access to components for maintenance and improved overall performance of the system. Duratherm MAX is a line of high-performance water systems with temperatures up to 193°C and system pressures up to 300 psi/20.7 bar. Duratherm MAX is designed for restrictive processes and high-temperature water applications. It features a stainless steel heater vessel designed and tested to ASME standards. The system uses nonferrous and stainless steel materials of construction and a seal-less magnetic drive turbine pump fitted with a stainless steel impeller. The Duratherm MAX incorporates a fan-cooled heat exchanger that provides safe and dependable cooling of the process fluid and eliminates thermal shock, flashing to steam, mineral buildup and expansion noise.
