Case Study - Fertilizers Manufacturing, Wloclawek, Poland


Mexel products were employed to treat two cooling towers and associated water circuits at a Fertilizer Factory located in Wloclawek, Poland. The factory produced ammonia, nitric acid and ammonia nitrate and its total water flow was approximately 110,000 gpm. The problems being experienced included corrosion induced leaks and excessive quantities of scaling and mud. Mexel proved successful in stopping the pitting, reducing biofouling, stabilizing the pH, and diminishing the sedimentation and metals’ discharge in two separate units with varying constituent materials.
