The unique functionality of the E-Cat

Thickeners and clarifiers are essential elements of a highly profitable and productive operation. Unfortunately, they can have a lot of moving parts and be hard to maintain. They also take up a lot of space and can be costly to run. The E-Cat solves all these issues. It’s one powerful machine that handles both clarifying and thickening.


No moving parts makes maintenance a breeze. And a compact design with clarification and thickening all in one machine means you’ll have more room to work with, keeping your plant more open, accessible, and safe.


Lower operating cost sets the E-Cat apart. Add to that low flocculant consumption, and you have a machine that can really take your operation to the next level. In addition to all this, we offer our personalised expertise to guide you through every step of the installation and maintenance process. Your success is our priority. This is just one of the many sustainable productivity solutions we provide.
