3D TRASAR® technology for Cooling Water helps Nucor Steel Kankakee save 60 million gallons of water

During World Water Week, Nalco will be featured jointly with Nucor Corporation in an advertisement in the U.S. edition of The Wall Street Journal on Sept. 7. Nucor, the largest U.S. steel producer and North America's largest steel recycler, implemented 3D TRASAR® Technology for Cooling Water and saved 60 million gallons of water at its Kankakee rebar facility.

Nucor Steel Kankakee Inc. in Bourbonnais, Illinois was facing issues with respect to water balance.  As part of their initiative to reduce water usage, they recycle all of the blowdown from the four non-contact cooling water systems to the main process water system which supplies cooling water for the continuous caster and rolling mill. Because the non-contact cooling water cycles were not optimized, excessive blowdown was entering the process water system leading to water balance issues. Nalco collaborated with Nucor to implement 3D TRASAR technology to solve the mill’s water balance challenges while meeting water conservation targets.
