Need: Deionized Water
Customer: Fortune 100 Primary Metals Manufacturer
Challenge: Reduce cost for demineralizing 250 gpm of municipal water
The Superintendent of a rolling mill was faced with intense pressure to reduce manufacturing costs. He had no budgeted money for capital improvements and was unlikely to get any approved in the then current budget cycle. WaterProfessionals® helped him evaluate his deionized water specifications for service deionization (SDI) provided by an off-site vendor.
An alternative commercial reverse osmosis technology was evaluated and found to produce water acceptable for the process. Equipment was purchased using a tax-friendly lease with an option to purchase. The WaterProfessionals® provided routine and emergency service under a 10-year maintenance contract to assure uninterrupted production of 250 gpm of demineralized water 24/7. Immediate and significant monthly savings were realized.
