Zinkan - Authorized Distributor of MATEC


If any of your processes involve water, you could

benefit from Matec technologies



Any industry that uses water in its processes would benefit from Matec's products. Benefits include: reusing of processed water, reduction of man power, and reducing chemical usage. Zinkan, being an authorized distributor of Matec, considers the low cost of implementation of Matec technologies as an additional benefit.





Aggregates generally include sand, gravel, expanded clay, vermiculite, and perlite, and also any crushed material used in building construction. They can be found in composite materials, such as cement and bituminous conglomerates and plasters. Sedimentary rocks: Chemical (Limestone, Dolostone, Evaporites), Clastic (Conglomerate, Breccia, Sandstone, Siltstone, Mudstone, Shale) Biologic (Coal, Chert); Igneous rocks: Intrusive (Gabbro, Diorite, Granodiorite, granite), Extrusive (Basalt, Andesite, Dacite, Rhyolite); Metamorphic rocks: Foliated (Slate, Schist, Gneiss), Non-foliated (Quartzite, Marble).


In the construction sector, the washing of trucks and mixers produces a slurry which contains several solids that could be recovered and sent back through the cement and concrete production process or discharged, cutting down on costs. Clarifying the washing water is an important point for saving it.


The Coal sector develops around the global use of coal as solid fuel for power stations and heating supply. USA is one of the major coal producers and users of the world. MATEC has installed over 50 filtration plants worldwide in the major coal mines. Rocks, coal, and clay may contain a wide range of heavy materials, such as arsenic, lead, cadmium, chromium, iron, manganese, aluminum and nickel. This is why it is important filtrating waste waters to clarify them and recover the precious materials.

Iron Ore

USA are well-known for their resources. The IRON-ORE industry involves the extraction and processing of raw materials, such as: metals (iron, nickel, bronze and zinc), non-metals, noble metals (gold, silver, platinum and palladium), minerals, and other sector products (silicates, clays, kaolin, etc.). The mineral concentrate value is increasing every day in the market. Its recovery is fundamental to maximize the returns.

Stone Cutting

In marble, granite, and stone cutting and processing, water has multiple applications either in quarries, workshops, or saw-mills. From cutting to polishing, water is necessary to avoid tools’ over-heating and reduce dust produced in various processes. Then, water needs to be treated in order to be re-used in the production closed cycle or discharged while complying with environmental regulations.
