Harleysville, PA, November 4, 2009- Raymond J. De Hont, Chairman and Chief Executive Office of Met-Pro Corporation, announced today that the Company's Duall business unit has received two orders, totaling approximately $2.8 million, from two municipal water treatment facilities. One, valued at $2.2 million, is to supply three odor control and six water purification systems. The second, valued at approximately $600,000, is to supply two Duall degasifier systems, complete with Duall exhaust fans. Both projects are located in the Southern United States and are expected to ship during the Company's next fiscal year, which begins February 1, 2010.
The odor control and water purification systems will reduce harmful and hazardous odors by removing hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide at the water treatment plant's filtration and processing operation. The systems include Duall forced draft aerators, odor control scrubbers utilizing the Company's Fybroc pumps for recirculation, and exhaust fans.
The degasifiers will remove hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide dissolved gases from contaminated groundwater as part of the process designed to make the groundwater suitable for public use. Both orders will be manufactured in Duall's Owosso, Michigan factory using Duall's unique NSF approved DUALLast® fiberglass reinforced plastic construction with thermoplastic inner liner for greater corrosion resistance and extended service life.
"These orders demonstrate Duall's continuing strong presence in the municipal water and wastewater markets and represent another example of Met-Pro's ability to provide solutions that utilize our diverse product brands," said De Hont. "Both orders were received during the Company's fiscal third quarter ended October 31, 2009, allowing us to achieve the highest quarterly booking total year to date. We are encouraged by our success in being selected for these projects and remain optimistic that circumstances are continuing to improve for the release of other large projects we have been pursuing."
