At this Wastewater Treatment Plant in Glendale Heights, IL, an aluminum slide gate had to be forced open using a front-end loader and a chain after seizing in place due to inevitable corrosion. The corrosive bond was so severe that the chain snapped upon the first attempt.

The water and wastewater treatment and control industry is a prime example of how constant exposure to toxic elements can and will cause costly maintenance issues in metal equipment. This is most evident in highly sensitive applications like wastewater treatment.
