Installation of Monitrol Water Management Program at midwest automotive customer results in 80% water and 15% chemical usage reductions.
The customer is a large automotive parts manufacturer located in the Midwest, USA. The account has multiple cooling towers totaling just over 1100 active tons.
The facility had two primary issues with their water treatment program. First, copper corrosion was occurring in the system, resulting in copper levels at the discharge greater than local regulations allowed. Copper levels in the blowdown of the various towers ranged from 0.1-1.1 ppm. Second, due to the limits of the water treatment program being used, cycles were limited to just two. This resulted in a blowdown rate in excess of 17 million gallons of water per year.
The DuBois Solution
DuBois proposed a complete, Water Management Program across all of the facilities’ cooling towers. This program consisted of Monitrol 2300 PBB, DICA 66, and Trex-Ade 410 (for additional copper corrosion inhibition.) A Monitrol equipment program was also installed.
