3D TRASAR Technology Wins Achievement in Innovation Award

Nalco 3D TRASAR technology was recently honored with the 2010 Steel Manufacturers Association (SMA) Achievement in Innovation Award during their annual meeting in Washington, D.C.

“3D TRASAR technology was recognized by the SMA because it has the demonstrated ability to help steelmakers reduce maintenance costs associated with furnace and rolling mill equipment cooling, caster mold and machine cooling, as well as casting and rolling contact cooling water,” said Mike Romano, Strategic Business Unit Leader. “It also has the potential to improve steel quality and casting speeds by eliminating deposits, thus providing more effective and consistent mold cooling.”

The trade association for electric arc furnace (EAF) steelmakers counts members from 36 North American companies that operate a total of 130 steel plants and accounts for over 70 percent of domestic steel production. Nalco, one of 129 non-steel producing associate members who provide goods and services to the steel industry, has been an active member since 2003.

“This technology has been successfully implemented in 18 North American EAF steel making facilities including those of Gerdau Ameristeel, Nucor Corporation and Steel Dynamics, Inc.,” said Joe Mazur, Marketing Manager. “Recognition by the SMA helps to validate our 3D TRASAR technology and should aid our sales force in accelerating market adoption.”
