KraftPowercon acquires MET

Global Mining Review,


KraftPowercon, Sweden, has announced the acquisition of 100% ownership of US-based Marsulex Environmental Technologies (MET).

MET has produces air quality control systems (AQCS) and services that aim to cost-effectively minimise pollutants, including sulfur dioxide particulates, nitrogen oxide, mercury and acid gas from emissions of electric utilities, petrochemical and general industrial facilities around the world. In the US, MET maintains facilities in Pennsylvania and New Jersey while operating globally, predominantly in the Americas and Europe.

The acquisition could enable MET to introduce cost-efficient electrical upgrades of Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs) using KraftPowercon’s ‘SmartKraft’ and ‘MicroPulse’ power supplies. This technology provides a means of upgrading ESPs to achieve particulate emission compliance.

Ranjit Jakkli, Managing Director of KraftPowercon, commented: “An electrical upgrade eliminates the need to increase the physical size of the ESP, making it the lowest cost, and most space/downtime-efficient means of achieving compliance with modern particulate emission levels. MET will continue to actively pursue its current markets with its suite of AQCS products to support the industry’s demand for lower emissions.”

KraftPowercon, Sweden, manufactures power supplies and rectifiers for a variety of industrial applications including ESPs, ballast water treatment and production of industrial gases, as well as surface treatment and production of semiconductors. The company has manufacturing facilities in Sweden, China and India.
