ProAct Services Corporation specializes in providing innovative air and water treatment solutions customized to meet the requirements of specific environmental issues. With an emphasis in on-site water treatment, industrial degassing/vapor control, environmental remediation, and suspended solids removal, ProAct Services Corporation is committed to delivering exceptional service in a safe, responsive manner to ensure client satisfaction. Our team of dedicated specialists, including environmental treatment specialists, project managers, field personnel, treatment system operators, skilled welders, mechanics, and electricians take pride in utilizing their unparalleled knowledge to design and build custom systems to operate at maximum efficiency. Headquartered in Michigan, with regional locations throughout the United States, ProAct Services Corporation is prepared to respond and mobilize to address immediate and emergent situations.
In 1994, Frank Smiddy and a partner founded ProAct Services Corporation with the goal of providing high quality environmental treatment solutions to their clients. Eighteen years and 1500 projects later, ProAct has established five US locations to serve our national clientele; Texas, New Jersey, Michigan, Connecticut and Maryland. ProAct has installed equipment across the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Bahamas and Colombia, South America.
ProAct's first mobile remediation systems were built for rent. ProAct currently has the largest rental fleet of environmental treatment equipment in the world, with an $8,000,000 inventory of over 300 trailer and skid mounted treatment systems. Our machinery is rugged and reliable, with run-times of greater than 90%. We guarantee our equipment!
In 1996, ProAct added mobile on-site water treatment services to support the petroleum and product pipeline industries. Using particulate and carbon filtration technology, ProAct's Water Treatment Specialists can treat water at flow rates from 10 to 5,000 gallons per minute. From pipeline hydrotests to construction dewatering and dredging, ProAct can treat for solids, hydrocarbons, mercury, iron and other metals, hexavalent chromium, chlorine, pH, PCB's, dyes and algae.
ProAct purchased its first Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) system in 1996 for use on gasoline contaminated soil sites. Presently, ProAct owns 20 ICE units, the largest ICE fleet in the world. Our ICE technicians are expert in the operation and maintenance of environmental remediation engines, keeping our engine systems in excellent repair and like-new condition.
Vapor emission control (tank degassing) services emerged as an extension of our ICE experience. ProAct has four twin 8 cylinder ICE systems specifically designed for storage tank emissions control. We also have scrubber systems and thermal oxidizers available for all emissions control applications. Our technicians are certified in refinery and tank farm safety.
ProAct's latest development is a fully automated and enclosed construction and dredging water solids removal system. The equipment is enclosed in a 52 foot heated box trailer, and is capable of operating at a flow rate of 350 gpm. The system continuously monitors turbidity and pH, and adjusts polymer and flocculent addition to match the solids loading in the water. Operator time is minimal compared to componentized treatment systems.
ProAct has constructed several comprehensive remediation systems. Noteworthy projects include a $4,000,000 water treatment bioreactor facility at a former coal tar facility, two mobile 200 pound per day ozone injection systems for year round operation in Alaska and numerous custom site remediation systems.
ProAct's success is built around the exceptional quality of its systems, the most highly trained treatment specialists in the industry, and an excellent safety record. Take advantage of ProAct's experience to make your next project a success.
