Met-Chem has built a solid reputation for acquiring and refurbishing used filtration equipment.
We have yards filled with a wide variety of used equipment, some of them are in great condition, some are not... However any piece of equipment that has been refurbished by Met-Chem leaves our facility in excellent, "good-as-new" condition.
Clarifier Reconditioning Process: This particular clarifier was in rough condition and once it was reconditioned, it was the perfect solution for someone's wastewater treatment plant.
The reconditioning is not only for the outside of the clarifier. Both the inside and outside of the Clarifier are stripped and sandblasted to remove any loose paint, rust, or other materials.
This sandblasting process helps to expose any issues with the steel, joints, etc.
New metal is added to replace questionable or damaged metal. The legs, braces, brackets, and supports are all repaired or replaced.
As with the outside of the clarifier any internal parts are repaired, replaced, or fabricated.
Our team members have extensive knowledge and skills for building and fixing parts when needed.
Not only does this give Met-Chem the ability to proceed quickly, since we don't have to wait for parts, but it also allows us to customize the project as needed by the client.
The exterior, safety blue, two part epoxy, consists of an epoxy resin which is cross-linked with a hardener. When catalyzed and applied, our epoxies produce a hard, chemical and solvent resistant finish for the clarifier.
The black, coal tar epoxy is applied to the inside of the clarifier. Coal tar epoxy is a heavy duty, high build protective coating commonly used industrially on barge hulls and underground tanks. This blend of epoxy resin and coal tar makes an excellent protective barrier coating for steel and iron.
Finally, the completed clarifier is reassembled, checked, and tested to ensure all the parts are working correctly, there are no areas to cause leaks, and the quality surpasses expectation.
Fully assembled, Met-Chem performs the final factory acceptance test of quality assurance. This test includes the mixer gear box and motor test, as well as water fill/leak test.
You are welcome to inspect and sign-off on the unit before final payment. You can visit the clarifier in our shop or we can send a video of the unit in action. We are confident you will be impressed with the final product.
Once the unit passes our reconditioning tests, and is approved, it will ship with a 30 day warranty.
