CSN is a large Brazilian steel group that prioritizes the rational use of natural resources, including proper management of water. To achieve greater environmental and financial results, CSN partnered with Ecolab to address recurring premature burning on hot blast valves from one of its blast furnaces. Leveraging Ecolab’s 3D TRASARTM Technology program and Tagged High Stress Polymer technology, CSN reduced fouling and scale in its critical process cooling.
Faced with rising electricity costs and increased demand, Chinese steel producer Sha Steel sought to reduce costs and save water and energy. Ecolab employed a suite of solutions, including its 3D TRASARTM Technology Scale Index to monitor, control and optimize Sha Steel’s critical process cooling system efficiency.
