Water cycle treatment additives were successfully tested in the Republic of Uzbekistan

During the period from May 22, 2015 to July 8, 2015 the first pilot tests of reagents of Water Circulation System Service Business Unit (Mirrico Group of Companies) were successfully performed at the metallurgical plant of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

The combined water circuit of the oxygen compression shop was tested. Oxygen compression shop is one of the main shops in the structure of the plant and is designed for uninterrupted provision of the plant workshops with compressed air and air products.

The specialists of the Reagent Treatment Technology Department Radik Valiev and Alexei Pavlov, the specialist of the Technical Audit Department Rustem Zainullin participated in the tests, and the representative of the Mirrico Group of Companies Alisher Sultanov conducted extensive support during the tests in the Republic of Uzbekistan.

The tests were carried out under rather severe conditions: reagent treatment of water cycles was not performed before the tests; there was a large amount of salt deposits and mechanical impurities on internal surfaces of the process equipment and pipelines; circulating water had high salinity and its corrosive aggressiveness was at a high level; the ambient temperature reached +55 °C. Nevertheless, objectives of the tests, that is to reduce corrosion processes, scaling processes, biological sediments and prevent blockage of heat exchange equipment were achieved. The results of the pilot testing of the combined contour of the old and new shops of the oxygen compression shop hailed a success. Reagents of Water Circulation System Service Business Unit are recommended for industrial application.

A decision to involve Water Circulation System Service Business Unit for carrying out pilot tests of chemical reagents at other water-rotation cycles was taken in the course of the technical meeting at the metallurgical plant.
