Production of Distilled Water
Melting department is the “flaming heart” of each foundry and “Dnepropromlit” is not an exception. One of the conditions for ensuring the high productivity of induction casting furnaces is the elimination of equipment shutting down due to its overheating. Otherwise, performance of the units will drop violently and an emergency situation may occur, which will lead to the activation of the protection systems or even to the failure of the equipment.
Only distilled water is used for cooling since it gives the possibility to avoid the sediment formation on the cooling system vessel walls. Nevertheless, earlier purchased distilled water was expensive, had poor quality and led to losses during TFC operation.
Therefore, our own distiller for pure water for TFC operation was successfully purchased and installed during the overhaul at DPL.
