Tyre & Rubber

The tyre & rubber manufacturing industry uses water in many areas of the process. These include direct contact cooling and curing water and steam, indirect steam and cooling via heat exchangers, heat exchangers and moulds, and utilities cooling of air compressors, oil coolers and other machinery.

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

  • Corrosion protection of boiler systems particularly afterboiler systems
  • Control of condensate quality and monitoring for contamination
  • 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 of scale deposits in heat exchangers
  • Control steam purity from boilers to protect steam turbines
  • Management of boiler feed water purity
  • Treatment of wastewater to minimize suspended┬ásolids, COD and BOD

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.
