Metals smelting plants and mills are dependent on water for many areas of the plant operation. Water is used to cool external surfaces of furnaces, quench and cool surfaces of product metal throughout many stages of the refining and fabrication process, through to rolling and forming. Steam is also used for the addition of heat to various parts of the refining process and for power utility applications.
Some of the critical areas that must be focused on in order to ensure the reliable and efficient operation of the plant include:
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.
