Nalco Champion has conducted a work in partnership with Braskem to analyze points out of specification, which were hindering the improvement of results; then, the company implemented some improvements with the consequent reduction of losses, as shown in the table below:
Since 3 boilers had a potential optimization of parameters, the impact was approximately MR$ 645/year. Given the great challenge faced in 2017 in the Camaçari/BA area, savings in water resources are also noteworthy, i.e., a 39% reduction in blowdown flow, meeting all Braskem's corporate sustainability goals with a positive impact on water security of adjacent communities.
Through a patented fluorescence technology for internal treatment and boiler feed water, we are able to measure its concentration and obtain the benefit of diagnosing losses of these boilers.
