Phosphate Production

Nalco Water Deploys Scale-Guard™ Program to Help Phosphoric Acid Plant Increase Annual Production by 54%

In phosphate processing operations, calcium sulfate scale is a daily cost of doing business. The scale results in lost evaporator efficiency, lost production time due to cleanings, increased cleaning-related expenses, and cleaning-related safety challenges. Nalco Water partnered with a US-based phosphoric acid plant to help minimize scale build-up. By deploying SCALE-GUARD EP310, Nalco Water helped the plant increase annual production by 54%, as well as decrease cleaning time and intensity.  Download the case study below to learn more.
