Turnkey Solutions for Heavy Metal
from Industrial Wastewater
system for heavy-metal removal from wastewater.
Metal removal from
industrial waste water requires more than
chemicals and an understanding of the chemistries.
It requires an integrated solution which combines
the right chemicals and processes with piping,
tanks, sensors, an automated process control control
system,human-machine interface (HMI), and provisions
for all-around safety.
By working with
Wastech Controls &
Engineering as its equipment and process
control partner, MetFloc Chemicals Company can provide
complete turnkey solutions for heavy metal removal,
water recycling, zero discharge, and waste water
processing. Wastech has been a one-stop shop for
industrial waste treatment since 1987.
It is a world-class,
full-service, industrial fabricator, waste treatment
manufacturer, and process system integrator.
Integrated MetFloc™ Systems
for Heavy Metal Removal
MetFloc™ technology is available for efficient and
cost-effective removal of ALL heavy metals. Even the
presence of metal complex or interfering agents
(such as ammonia, sulfates, soaps, etc.) will not
reduce the effectiveness of this chemistry. In one
pass, the MetFloc™ chemistry can remove heavy metals
below compliance levels instantaneously and without
a secondary pH adjustment. Sludge is reduced and is
easy to dewater. This new technology provides
one-step chrome removal and zinc removal, and
can take very low metal content to ppb levels.

chemical formulations compete with common commodity
solutions such as caustic soda, ferric chloride, ferrous
sulfate, lime and acid additives for heavy metal waste
treatment. These require multiple steps and generate
large amounts of sludge with high labor costs and
capital requirements. The MetFloc™ solution is much more
cost effective. In addition, common metal grabbers and
metal scavengers will not be as effective as MetFloc™
If you are exceeding
your discharge limits for lead, zinc, copper,
chrome, or other heavy metals, MetFloc Chemicals
Company can provide a cost-effective, integrated
solution regardless of the volume discharged. Using
the latest MetFloc™ chemical technologies, our
experienced engineers will design a complete system
including controls, chemical usage, and sludge
handling. Such a system can include redundant
sensing, communications an monitoring, plus
state-of-the art operator interface.
packaged, skid-mounted systems for smaller discharge
volumes. These provide a safe, one-pass discharge
for different types of wastewater, including
recycled coolant water or recycled parts washing
water. This design uses a bentonite clay compound
that will encapsulate contaminants including
emulsified oils into a sturdy clay floc that in many
cases is non-hazardous. The system can include ozone
treatment and polishing. It can be a continuous or
batch process, automated or manual, with either bag
filters or an indexed filter bed.
