In stone cutting, polishing, and finishing, water is a vital part of stone cutting and quarry operations. It helps to keep tools from overheating and reduces dust from operations. Water used in this process must be treated before it can be used again. As an authorized dealer of Matec Equipment, we’re bringing you the best equipment to facilitate that process. Matec systems are designed and manufactured for any sector that deals with waste water and silt.
When it comes to stone cutting, its important to be compliant with environmental laws. To keep up with the changes, new technologies in the wastewater and slurry treatment field have been developed.
As an authorized dealer of Matec technology, we’re proud to provide equipment that is in line with environmental regulations, without a loss in returns for plant owners. With the use of Matec filter presses, plants are better able to recover and re-use water and dispose of arising sludge. Matec treatment plants are designed to maximize the returns of stone working sites.
Stone cutting is the process by which raw stone is either cut or grinded down into a usable material according to plant specifications. Depending on the type of stone, it will then be polished for use in a variety of different industries, and/or finished with different finishes depending on how they are going to be used. Wastewater that originates from this process must be collected and treated for reuse. In Matec systems, after water has been collected, it fills a deep cone vertical thickener. Flocculant is prepared and injected into dirty water pipes before entering the vertical thickener.
There decantation takes place and purified water overflows into a clean water collection area. Any mud left over is sent into a Bifang homogenizer tank, then to a filter press where dry cakes are formed and discharged. With Matec presses, they beat the average residual moisture of cakes of 20% to as low as 7-8%.
