Harleysville, PA - Raymond J. De Hont, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Met-Pro Corporation (NYSE:MPR), announced today that the Company's Environmental Air Solutions business unit has received two orders, totaling approximately $900,000, to supply thermal oxidation equipment for the production of green fuels. One thermal oxidizer will be used in the production of high BTU landfill gas. The other will be installed in a facility for manufacturing and coating proppants, which are used in the exploration and extraction of natural gas. Both systems are expected to ship in the first quarter of the Company's next fiscal year.
The thermal oxidizer for the landfill gas purification system will incorporate an energy efficient staged combustion system to minimize the auxiliary fuel requirements. The purified landfill gas will be supplied to consumers through existing natural gas distribution pipelines.
The air emissions control system for the proppant coating line will be added to an existing Met-Pro thermal oxidizer. This is a fast track project designed to double the capacity of the existing oxidizer to 26,000 cubic feet per minute. The new system includes both Met-Pro Systems and Duall® brand equipment. The customer's preference to utilize the combined technologies of a Duall® venturi scrubber with a Systems brand oxidizer is another example of the "Total Solutions" product offering uniquely available from Met-Pro Environmental Air Solutions.
"These orders demonstrate the company's continuing strong presence in the emerging green fuels market and are another example of Met-Pro's ongoing efforts to leverage the single source synergies and engineering expertise that exist among the company's product brands," said De Hont. "They reinforce the reputation of Met-Pro Environmental Air Solutions as a leader in this field and give us continued optimism for similar orders in the future."
