One of the equipment manufacturers was omitted from a recent article in Stone World (“Campolonghi opens new facilities in Carrara,” September 2007 issue, page 128). A Matec Water Treatment System, including a stainless steel silo and filterpress (originally pictured on page 128), is recycling the water and feeding water to all of the machinery at Campolonghi’s new facility. It is also dehydrating or dewatering the slurry into dry cakes. This system handles up to 5,000 liters/minute (1,315 gallons/minute).
