ROI Case Study: Using ATP to Improve Surface Treatment Operations
Problem: An aircraft production facility’s surface treatment system was experiencing issues associated with excessive microbiological growth within the coating system’s recirculation loops. These issues led to increased maintenance costs, water consumption, chemical consumption, and production of wastewater.
Facility: A surface treatment plant at an aircraft production facility in France.
Investment: QGA test kit for initial microbiological survey and follow-up testing to verify efficacy of corrective actions.
Economic Analysis: Corrective actions reduced the frequency for ion exchange regenerations, water consumption, labour requirements, and chemical consumption, resulting in a total savings of $23,000 per year.
