Nalco understands that the boiler is at the heart of the corrugated box manufacturing process. If the boiler goes down, no boxboard can be made, and most plants do not have a spare boiler. Any interruption or variation in steam quality can quickly lead to poor bonding and increased scrap rates.
In addition, corrugators have a highly variable steam demand, as today’s corrugators can go from 100 to 1,000 lfm very quickly. These add up to a challenging water treatment situation which, if not properly controlled, can result in increased boiler carryover and increased scrap rates. Nalco understands these complex challenges. We treat the majority of the major corrugated box plants in North America, providing both a wealth of industry experience, as well as a track record of superior results. Some of the comprehensive solutions Nalco can assist you with include:
