Steel industry

Steel-making processes consume large amounts of water because production both releases and demands lots of heat. In fact, the production of a metal or a by-product is very sensitive to corrosion.

The financial stakes involved in corrosion are therefore much greater than those of the water treatment cost.

Thanks to its know-how in the management of water and treatment processes, Aquaprox supplies its customers in the metallurgical industry with solutions that are both economically and environmentally sustainable.

Our products and services are designed to support our customers in improving the quality and the efficiency of their production, whilst at the same time reducing their overall operating cost and their environmental footprint.
