PCMF in Hessen (Germany)
The Mörfelden-Walldorf wastewater treatment plant is now the first municipal wastewater treatment plant in Hessen (Germany) to eleminate micropollutants and is starting to relieve the Hessian Ries. Until now, the unique combination of pre-ozonation and dosing of powdered activated carbon before Mecana Pile Cloth Media Filtration offers a maximum flexibility and efficiency in the smallest possible space.

PCMF for boat washing systems
Our pile cloth media filters are also in demand in SWISS ELEMENTIC boat washes. The pesticide-laden debris from the boat hull is collected in the basin and the dirty water is cleaned by a Mecana pressure drum filter (MDF). Thanks to regular hull cleaning of the boats, anti-fouling paints and fuel can be reduced. In the process, the MDF makes a major contribution to environmental protection.

PCMF in Dortmund Deusen
The world's largest pile cloth media filtration is being built at the Dortmund Deusen wastewater treatment plant! The first filter machine has been pre-assembled. We are looking forward to the 23 further PCMFs, in order to remove the powdered activated carbon together with micropollutant from the wastewater treatment plant effluent in the future.
