Water treatment for the metal and mining industry Degremont Industry provides water supply for each metals and mining industry to reconcile competitivity and protection of the environment. The steel and metallurgy industries are capital intensive and operate in global markets prone to cyclical variations, meaning that they must be as competitive as possible in terms of both cost and quality. As such, securing the water supply and controlling the water cycle are prerequisites for protecting the environment whilst enhancing its competitive edge. Where the steel industry handles large volumes of water during production and the cooling process, the metallurgy industry often uses smaller quantities of water and must comply with more stringent quality criteria for water used as part of the process itself, for stripping, rolling and surface treatment (galvanisation, etc.). Controlling the water cycle in the mining or metallurgy industry requires detailed knowledge of the production processes and the ability to correctly scale the associated water treatment lines (hydrocyclone, settling, filtration).
