STC Dip Spin Equipment Offers Wastewater Treatment Systems

The equipment functions mechanically using membrane and vacuum distillation technology, offering chemical-free filtration for recycle and reuse of wastewater.

Kalamazoo, Michigan-based STC Dip Spin, a manufacturer of dip spin coating equipment, is expanding its offering to include wastewater consultation and equipment through a partnership with PRAB.

The equipment functions mechanically using membrane and vacuum distillation technology, offering chemical-free filtration for recycle and reuse of wastewater. Reducing waste from surface finishing and other common surface treatment applications helps cut operating costs and mitigates risk of environmental hazards. STC Dip Spin and PRAB, Inc. are sister companies as part of the KMC Global group; kmcorpglobal.com

“The surface finishing industry has struggled to find solutions to wastewater issues because few companies offer a full spectrum of wastewater treatment equipment," said Pat Burgio, STC Dip Spin Sales Manager. "This means, to achieve the required level of filtration without chemicals, the surface finisher/coating company must work with multiple manufacturers and with multiple pieces of equipment to achieve compliant filtration results. This situation is almost never ideal because each piece of equipment must work seamlessly as part of a complete system. Unless all parties are working synergistically and all components are tested together, the surface finisher/coating company is left to make all components operate as a system.”

The Systems View in Automotive Finishes: Essential, but Overlooked - The 38th William Blum Lecture

This article is a re-publication of the 38th William Blum Lecture, presented at the 84th AES Annual Convention in Detroit, Michigan on June 23, 1997.  This lecture reviews a number of works in automotive finishing R&D in which understanding of the overall system was absolutely essential to success, from classical nickel-chromium plating to work in vacuum/electroplated hybrids for plated plastics, electrogalvanized zinc and hard chromium in stamping dies.
