                      Egyptian Fertilizers Company (EFC) is a?leading global producer and distributor of?high-quality nitrogen fertilizer products?and industrial chemicals that provides?clean, environmentally sound solutions?to its customers. Its Suez plant is one of?the largest fertilizer complexes in Egypt,?producing 1,400 tons a day of ammonia and?5,000 tons a day of urea. It has four different?recirculating cooling water systems designed?to manage critical process operations.



                      One of the biggest challenges in open,?recirculating cooling systems is a high risk?of bacterial proliferation due to ammonia?contamination and the high temperature of the?cooling tower. This can lead to increased water,?energy and chemical consumption as well as:?

                      • Lower production
                      • Heat exchanger failure
                      • Microbiologically induced corrosion
                      • Loss of revenue

                      Nalco Water provided a comprehensive?solution that included on-site expertise and?Purate? Technology, a patented, proprietary?chlorine dioxide program that controls biologic?growth in cooling towers and other industrial?water treatment applications. The treatment?program has helped the EFC plant reduce:

                      • Water consumption
                      • Maintenance costs
                      • Corrosion rates
                      • Chemical usage

                      In addition, overall plant performance has?improved, and safety has increased, due to?the replacement of volatile chlorine gas with?stable and reliable Purate biocide technology.
