Metal Finishing

The metal finishing industry is faced with stringent wastewater effluent guidelines as administered by the USEPA and local municipalities. Extreme pressure from competition and the need to be cost competitive make meeting these guidelines particularly important, as stiff financial penalties can result from violations. Surface preparation applications generate a wide variety of challenges for meeting wastewater compliance on a consistent and economic basis.

One water treatment company has chosen the treatment of industrial wastewaters as its core business focus. Plymouth Technology serves the metal finishing industry with a variety of proprietary wastewater treatment formulations to meet stringent effluent limits for heavy metals, oil & grease, suspended solids, and other contaminants.

Our field formulation chemists have the tools to develop a chemical and service solution to effectively treat water to remove:
  • Zinc
  • Nickel
  • Copper
  • Tin
  • Lead
  • Cadmium
  • Hexavalent/Trivalent Chrome
  • Fluoride
  • And other contaminants
Accompanying our high performance products is a comprehensive onsite service plan. Plymouth Technology customers can expect a qualified formulation chemist to regularly visit their site to optimize chemical treatment, investigate value-added projects, carry out technical training, and implement continuous improvement and best practices initiatives for your facility to maximize their value and generate spectacular results.
Forging Our comprehensive product line will effectively treat and remove heavy metals, organics, die lubricants and other contaminated streams to allow the facility to consistently maintain compliance and protect valuable process equipment from scale and corrosion.
PaintingAlthough the process of coatings continues to move towards environmentally "neutral" practices, the process is still water intensive and thus creates the demand for proper stewardship of the wastes generated by these processes. Plymouth has partnered with the painting industry to create innovative ways for reducing chemistry, labor, wastes, and ultimately costs that have been ever-present in this manufacturing sector.
PhosphatizingPlymouth Technology has a long history serving the zinc phosphating industry for the treatment of rinsewaters and concentrated solutions associated with zinc phosphating.
Plating We have developed a variety of proprietary treatment programs specifically designed and tailored for the typical manufacturing configurations found in the plating industry. In addition, our unique Metals Removal System technology has proven invaluable to numerous plating customers for its ability to effectively remove chelated metals and other contaminants to meet effluent requirements and even to recycle water back to the process.
