The tobacco industry also uses direct application of steam onto tobacco leaf and for temperature and humidity management inside the factory. Cooling is used extensively for utilities applications including cooling of air compressors, for utilities air, and refrigeration for temperature control.

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

  • Response to volatile organic acid contamination in steam condensate to prevent steam condensate corrosion and control dissolved and suspended iron
  • 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
  • Scale deposit control to maximize capacity and efficiency of critical cooling heat exchangers
  • Management of boiler and steam to comply with regulatory requirements
  • 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.
