Did you know: Our membrane filter presses helped remediate more than 13 miles of contaminated riverbed in the Lower Fox River in Wisconsin, with each filter press capable of producing 18 tons of filter cake every hour. 

Environmental remediation is always an ambitious task. And the case of Lower Fox River in Wisconsin was no exception. To clean up contamination from PCBs, the dewatering stage alone demanded eight fully automated, cost-efficient membrane filter presses, each capable of producing 18 tons of filter cake every hour, over the course of 10 years.

The result? More than 13 miles of remediated riverbed, and a thriving ecosystem for future generations to enjoy.
