The largest aluminum manufacturer in the country has a plant in South Texas that extracts aluminum out of bauxite. This specialized, multi-step process requires chemicals to be pumped through lines located throughout the facility. This process and the chemicals are extremely sensitive to cold weather. During the winter months, the facility monitors external temperatures and will inject anti-freeze to keep the product from freezing, which would turn it into a cement-like substance that permanently blocks the lines. In the event the product does freeze, the manufacturer has to take apart the entire facility to fix the tubes that have been blocked. This type of facility shut down could take days, weeks or even months to fix, leading to a loss of productivity and revenue.
StormGeo provides this aluminum manufacturer seven-day forecasts broken down hour-by-hour with weather and temperature conditions. In the event of a winter weather advisory, StormGeo alerts the facility of the upcoming weather event, allowing the plant to take precautionary measures such as adding anti-freeze to the lines.
