Abstract:Misunderstanding the true cost of utilizing raw materials such as water can frequently result in poor management choices regarding how the raw materials are used. Metal finishing operations are notorious for using large quantities of water in their processes. The common perception is that "water is cheap" so, it can be used liberally to ensure that work-pieces are adequately cleaned, rinsed, and coated. While it may be true that the actual purchase of the water itself is relatively inexpensive, the cost to using the water within the processes may be considerably more expensive.
