Insight

DS Smith, a global manufacturer of sustainable corrugated packaging materials and specialty papers, operates a power plant in Porcari, Italy, that produces electricity for the power grid and steam for an adjacent paper mill.

The power plant was experiencing ongoing challenges with intermittent, high levels of iron corrosion particles in its steam generation system. This was negatively affecting its boilers as well as its  productivity, profitability and overall operations.

Innovation

Enter Nalco Water’s team of experts. They identified the source of the magnetite loss and implemented 3D TRASAR™ Technology to reduce iron oxides in the boiler water, which greatly reduced the risk of the plant being taken offline. It also led to reduced boiler water blowdown, erosion and corrosion, which lowered maintenance costs and cut water consumption, decreasing the plant’s environmental impact.
