Steel Mills: Removing Oil from Scale Pits

Posted by David Cehlar on May 1, 2019 9:34:30 AM

Steelmaking is a competitive industry with a wide range of external factors that could inhibit operations. These include global market conditions, raw material prices, environmental standards and government regulations.

Luckily, there are ways in which the operation of steel mills can be significantly improved with a small investment. One of the easiest ways to achieve that is by installing an effective and efficient oil removal system.

Manufacturing steel produces a large amount of both solid and oily waste that get mixed into the wastewater. By implementing proper water treatment and oil skimming systems, a substantial part of these materials can be recovered and potentially reused. At the most basic level, removing oil from water in your scale pit or discharge ponds will help your steel plant run more effectively and efficiently.
