Plasti-Fab is the recognized leader in corrosion resistant equipment for water and wastewater treatment and control, specializing in Reinforced Copolymer (FRP) equipment for industry and infrastructure. Our equipment is resisting corrosion in abusive environments all around the world. FRP Rotating Scum Skimmers provide exceptional corrosion resistance under some of the worst operating conditions typically found in plant headworks and industrial process clarifiers.
We are proud to be a visionary company specializing in fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) equipment with the flexibility to meet your custom needs. For over 40 years we have produced engineered products designed to meet specific application requirements. We are a service-oriented organization with the experience necessary to recommend workable equipment and installation modifications when required.
Plasti-Fab has assembled a talented and seasoned team of sales professionals, operations experts, and engineers that are engaged in their work and excited to partner with organizations to find unique solutions to corrosion, structural, and infrastructure challenges using composites.
Plasti-Fab has a large selection of wastewater products to fit a whole range of needs. Plasti-Fab is also a proud member of the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA). You can learn more about the ACMA by clicking here.
From SQG to CEG
In 2009, we focused heavily on reducing VOC emissions. By eliminating the use of Acetone as a process solvent from 2000 gallons per year to less than 70 gallons per year, we reduced our VOC emissions from Acetone by more than 96%! As a result of these efforts, Plasti-Fab will go from a Small Quantity Generator (SQG) of hazardous waste - nearly 17,000 pounds annually, to a Conditionally Exempt Generator (CEG) – less than 2640 lbs annually. We are subsequently eligible for a reduced air permit as well.
Plasti-Fab has also switched its process of dispensing resin from traditional containers to closed dispensing systems. This manages and controls the VOC of gassing emissions by more than 80% for infusion oriented processes.
In 2010, we officially began recycling and reusing fiberglass waste in the form of a recycled FRP compound. This compound is not only greener, but also much stronger and will replace several poly foam materials currently being used in various projects.
We will keep you posted on all of Plasti-Fab's current and future Green and MEP programs as we continue move into a new era of responsibility and conservation.
