Water has nearly innumerable uses in steel and aluminum manufacturing: cleaning, cooling of products and equipment, dust control, descaling, heat treatment, electrochemical treatments, and scale/fines transport. Trucent’s robust separation technologies are ideal for extracting from the water the contaminants that result from these processes. Water can then be recirculated/reused.
Similarly, oils and lubricants play an important role in steel and aluminum production. Cooling water, scale, dust, and other contaminants can quickly degrade the quality of the oils and lubes, affecting the production process and material quality. Trucent’s portfolio of products and services includes those specifically designed to remove contaminants from oils and oil-based lubricants.
