Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) June 11, 2010
Kroff Process Technologies, a newly formed business that serves the fabrication and primary metals industries, has developed a new technology that eliminates the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are a byproduct of the metal fabrication process, without compromising the process.
Kroff, Inc., a respected leader in wastewater treatment chemicals with headquarters in Pittsburgh, recently incorporated Kroff Process Technologies to provide cutting-edge technology and chemicals to the metal fabrication industry. Kroff Process Technologies provides solutions that enhance metal fabrication processes, thereby optimizing plant efficiencies and reducing costs.
“A typical metal fabricating facility yields 50,000 to 100,000 pounds of VOCs per year,” said Jason Johnson, senior applications specialist. “With our technology, we completely eliminate VOCs, which clearly should reset accepted industry standards for cutting fluids. At this point, fabricators should settle for nothing less.
“There are many benefits to our technology and chemistry. We’ve eliminated certain chemical components that have historically been part of the makeup of cutting fluids. By doing so, fabricators can truly cut with the lubricant components of the fluid, resulting in as much as a 10 percent life extension on tooling equipment.”
KPT’s new technology also creates an improved work environment. Eliminating VOCs from cutting fluids improves air quality, reduces fabricator issues with the cutting fluids and results in fewer reportable incidents.
“Kroff has always provided excellent customer service, highly trained and experienced consultants, state-of-the-art technology, and specialty chemicals, and we’ll continue to do that through our newest venture,” said Dave Sunderlik, Kroff’s Midwest area manager. “We’re confident in our people and our processes, and we’re confident in Kroff Process Technologies.”
