There are several applications where the use of a Matec Filter Press is most useful. The filter press is:
All things considered, these solutions save our customers millions each year in handling and disposal costs.
Several industries can apply the Matec system:
Wherever a slurry requires treatment, a Matec system is the best solution available. The system allows customers to efficiently remove solids from waste water and dispose of them with minimal hauling on unnecessary water weight, all while saving money.
Typically, silt and other fine particles are in settling ponds. As a result, the heavier particles settle to the bottom creating sludge. Removing this waste is expensive because it requires heavy machinery and extra personnel for extraction. The Matec filter press can provide:
In stone cutting and concrete grinding operations, water has many applications from polishing the stone to preventing the tools from overheating. The plant can either reuse or discharge this water appropriately. The Matec filter press works great because it:
Treating the water will ensure residue isn’t left over after washing out trucks and mixers. After treating the water, personnel can implement and use the Matec filter press. The filter press presses the water and after low moisture cakes remain that are easy to dispose. This allows the water to recover and recycle back into the wash process.
In this industry, it is important to treat the water in order to remove the residue from glass working. The residue and water create slurry and then pumps through the filter press. By doing this, the filter press separates the water and residue and optimizes water recovery.
In short, the companies that implement the Matec Filter Press, find it is a vital part of their operation. Customers save money, time, stress and worry by making the switch and giving them one less thing to worry about.
