MATEC values the experience gained working on past projects. The following case studies have been developed to show how MATEC dealt with problems our competitors could not solve.
We have managed to solve several problems related with the disposal of the material.
Some of our best plants are in North America, precisely in the USA:
- Armstrong Coal (Kentucky);
- Iron Mountain Project (Nevada).
Through Matec machinery, our clients succeded in getting rid of obsolete systems, like the belt press, and increase their savings.
One of the main goals when dealing with aggregates production site has been eliminating the settling pond used for the disposal of fines. MATEC plants guarantee dry mud cakes that can be easily stocked and disposed of.
In this sector, we can show several examples of successful installations in the USA:
- Carolina Sunrock (North Carolina);
- Preferred Sand (Wisconsin).
Through filtration processes with MATEC machines, the recovery of precious materials can be dramatically increased.
In this sector, we usually dedicate different machines to the concentrate and the tailing sectors.

Pressure is to one plant what speed is to a car. More pressure (more speed) means better performances, a shorter cycle time, a lower humidity percentage and better results.
MATEC is the only 100% HPT company using pressures up to 16 and 21 BARS, twice as much as the pressures at which competitors work (8/10 BARS).
The shaking system is fundamental, without it you will have the cloth life reduced, the machine spraying and, above all, an operator to be always present.
MATEC uses the patented and high efficiency pneumatic GASSER system.
MATEC is the only company which gives a 36 month full warranty for its plants, for the electrical, the hydraulic and the mechanical parts.
A fully automatic plant does not need an operator, reducing the running costs.
MATEC produces only 100% automatic and hi-tech plants.
Always compare m³ per cycle and tons per hour. The productivity of a filter press is given by m³ per cycle and cycles, and consequently by tons of dry mud cakes produced, per hour.
MATEC designs and builds plants from 0,5 to 100 m³/h, every plant is automatic and customized.
The opening time (mud cake discharging) is an unproductive dead time. The faster the time for cake discharging and for restarting the filtration, the more productive is the machine.
MATEC is the only company which uses the TT2 patented system that reduces discharging times of big machines from 15/20 minutes to less than 3 minutes.
Stainless steel or iron is an important choice for the plant lifetime and
MATEC uses only AISI 304 Stainless steel to guarantee every product for 10 years and to reduce maintenance costs drastically.
