INTERNATIONAL TIRE COMPANY USES MECO INDUSTRIAL WATER SOFTENING SYSTEM IN ITS STATE-OF-THE-ART CHEMICAL AND POLYMER PLANT

MECO designed and manufactured an industrial water softening system for an international tire company’s chemical and polymer manufacturing plant in Beaumont, Texas. The MECO system consists of two industrial water softeners that produce 700 gallons per minute of pure water which is used in the manufacturing of synthetic rubber and specialty polymers. The MECO system removes hardness and ammonia from the plant’s incoming feed water source to produce the purified water required for manufacturing. The MECO water softeners are fitted with carbon steel with rubber lining, and they are ASME coded.
