Food Plant Saves 5 Million Gallons of Water
Mar 31, 2014
A food processing plant was experiencing low make-up water hardness and high alkalinity issues, resulting in significant white rust problems that caused cost expenditures of $750,000 to replace failed cooling towers.
This food processing plant turned to Nalco for assistance to help them address these issues. An important key to the success of the program was the alarm notification feature of the automation equipment. Through implementing 3D TRASAR Technology for Cooling water, the plant was able to save 5 million gallons per year in reduced cooling water sewer costs. The plant was also able to save $10,000 per year in reduced cooling water sewer costs.
