Chemical plant

BASF has a peculiar corrosion issue. To cool their cooling tower pumps, they use surface water from a nearby source. This water is treated by Evides Industriewater and distributed over the site. The water quality transported through the two water circuits feeding the pumps is identical. However, visual inspection has shown that a different degree of corrosion is observed in the pumping station, depending on which circuit the water comes from.
