OUR CLIENTS &
PREVIOUS WORK

SOME CLIENTS

Some of the largest businesses in the world have trusted us to help them control and elimate their scaling problems.

PREVIOUS WORK

The following case studies and project descriptions demonstrate the kind of results we help to create for our clients.

A "Big 3" Landfill

Midwestern United States

Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Landfill

PROBLEM:

Aluminum dross creating accelerated heat in leachate creating havoc on force mains, pumps, gravity lines and more.

1/4

Vale Inco

Mining Industry

 

PROBLEM:

Vale Inco (Sudbury, Ontario) historically experienced heavy scale issues in its process equipment, particularly in its rod mills facility. Lost productivity due to downtime for cleaning purposes was a critical factor.

A "Big 3" Landfill

Ohio, United States

 

PROBLEM:

This site had issues with a clogging leachate collection system, including the headers.

Domtar

Pulp & Paper Industry

 

PROBLEM:

Domtar's lime kiln scrubber historically experienced scaling problems in the piping and pumps that circulate water and mud slurry through the system. The pumping efficiency was typically observed to degrade after about 3 months of operation, wherein they were foced to stop the kilm in order to pressure wash and clean the system. Beyond the costs of pressure washing, the cost of the downtown was even worse.

1/3

Dupont

Automotive Industry

 

PROBLEM:

 

Dupont manufactures nylon for the automotive industry in North America. The spinning process uses large industrial air washers to mist and cool the nylon before final production. Using filtered lake water, the air washers would get a build-up of calcium carbonate scale in the cooling fins that would then reduce and eliminate the flow of moistened air through the washers. Every 90 days the complete T-333 process would need to be shut down for scheduled maintenance to clean the air washers, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost productivity and labour

1/4

Abitibi Consolidated

Pulp & Paper Industry

 

PROBLEM:

 

Over the past 15 years of operation, calcium carbonate and calcium silicate scale has accumulated in the piping system, disk thickeners, floatation cells and pressure screens. To deal with the scale problem the mill would have to spend approximately $150,000 annually on chemical scale inhibitor to reduce scale build-up in the process equipment. In addition, Abitibi would need to bring in high-pressure cleaners during their shutdowns to hydro-blast the equipment to remove the scale build-up.
