Tire Manufacturing and Products

Tire and Rubber Manufacturing Solutions

Tire and rubber production processes have critical heating and cooling needs in mixing, extrusion and final curing. Effective utility management is essential to improve product quality, brand loyalty, assure process reliability and control operational costs. Nalco Water is committed to helping improve process operations, optimize water use and lower energy consumption to reduce your costs and improve market competitiveness.

Bladder Curing Solutions

Bladder curing is a critical step to ensure product quality in tire manufacturing. Dissolved oxygen in hot water can lead to premature failure of the bladder, which results in high tire scrap cost and frequent downtime. The Nalco Water Corrosion Stress Monitor detects changes in oxidation/ reduction stress, determines corrective action and respond in real-time by changing oxygen scavenger feeding to protect the system.

Steam Reliability in Tire Production

Reliable steam generation lead to optimized curing cycles and reduced scrap rate. 3D TRASAR™ for Boilers provides reliability, extended asset life as well as reducing total costs of operation with labor, water and energy savings.

Water Leak Detection

Due to the vast and complex use of water in tire production, leaks are common and difficult to fix. Nalco Water diagnostic TRASAR™ and 3D TRASAR™ for cooling water and boiler systems can help find and maintaining optimized use of water. The Nalco Water team will partner with you to find and implement projects that improve your total cost of operation at your tire manufacturing plant.
