Clarifier - Case Study Just to clarify…



We buy used wastewater treatment equipment!: Do you have a used Filter Press, Clarifier, Sludge Dryer, Wastewater Evaporator or any other Wastewater Treatment Equipment that you are no longer using? Met-Chem has a long history of buying quality used equipment at fair prices while increasing our inventory.  This is how we offer quality new and used equipment at a reasonable price. 

Waste Water Treatment Systems Case Study: Just to clarify…: A new boarding school needed to put in a self-contained sanitary waste treatment system to handle all water sources generated at their facility. Met-Chem designed and built two 120 GPM clarifiers with flocculation tanks, and custom catwalks built to fit space limitations and overlook and operate the waste treatment system. 

Filter Press Case Study: No time to Waste - Emergency Filter Press Repair and Replacement: The client contacted Met-Chem with an immediate need for repair.  Aside from the safety concerns of a damaged press, a filter press cannot run with a broken skeleton.  For this application, waste was continuously generated, which rendered this an emergency situation. 

Filter Press Case Study: Turning water into Gold: To dewater the gold concentrate, Met-Chem installed a 1200MM filter press, and to eliminate the need for tailing ponds, Met-Chem designed a 1500MM filter press to dewater the tailings concentrate.

While Filter Presses have been the focus of Met-Chem manufacturing for many years.  We have built a solid reputation for building quality Filter PressesClarifiersSludge Dryers, Complete Waste Treatment SystemsFilter Cloths and Filter Press Plates and Parts.  Our pollution control equipment  has been used in a variety of industries from plating and metal finishing to chemical and food processing and bio diesel industries to name a few.  

At our Cleveland, Ohio manufacturing facility, we can design,  engineer, build and install your waste treatment equipment.
