While cement manufacturing is largely a dry process, the cement industry is still dependent on water for maximizing the performance of utilities systems such as oil cooling, compressor intercooler cooling and steam generation.

Some of the critical areas that must be focused on in order to ensure the reliable and efficient operation of the plant include:

  • Control of scale deposits in high temperature intercoolers and other heat exchangers that is exacerbated by contamination of cement dust in the system
  • Slime control in heat exchangers and cooling towers of cooling systems
  • Suspended solids control in low velocity heat exchangers
  • Corrosion protection of cooling systems to maximize plant life & performance
  • Control steam purity from boilers to protect steam turbines
  • Management of boiler feed water purity

The water management programs developed by ZI-CHEM are based on global technologies that have been applied in the field for many years and refined to optimize and enhance results. These are delivered by dedicated and experienced field service teams that are based close to or inside the plant site to ensure attentive support and rapid responses are provided, so that the objectives of the programs are achieved.
