    There is not a company with a staff

    hat has more knowledge and first-

    and experience in filtration technology

    nd equipment design for municipal,

    ndustrial, minerals and pulp and paper

    pplications. The company's main

    ocus in all the product offerings are

    uperior process performance andmaintenance durability and this goal

    does not take second place to any

    ther factor. This is my commitment.

    Our 40,000 sq. ft.machining/fabrication facility is located just

    off Interstate 87, the Northway, in upstate

    New York between Saratoga Springs and

    Greenwich, 45 minutes from the Albany

    International airport and only 180 milesfrom export ports on the east coast.

    Our engineering department utilizes

    AutoCad and three-dimensional modeling

    software, SolidWorks, for optimization

    of fabrication methodology and designing

    from the ground up with fabrication and

    future maintenance issues in mind.

    Machining and Fabrication tooling capabil-ities are excellent with precision CNC

    Machines, "water jet" plate cutting center,

    vertical and horizontal lathes, MIG and

    TIG welders, large width plate shears,

    bending units, thermoplastic coating unit,

    sand blast, and paint booth. Specialized

    jigs, and tooling made to fit the equipment

    are also key to superior product quality.

    Quality People

    Our highly skilled staff complete the

    BDP profile. The company's strategy

    has been to develop the skill set of

    an accomplished staff and give themmodern tooling to allow them to make

    everything in house, nothing is sublet.

    Rolls (including thermoplastic nylon or

    rubber coating), frame, plastic slides,

    drainage pans, feed box, etc. are all

    made in house. Control system using

    PLCs, push buttons or panelview

    screens are designed and fabricated in

    house. Repetition and product applica-

    tion knowledge result in better product

    fabrication and quality.
