filter press

Leading the industry for both the latest filter press and wastewater treatment, Tons Per Hour, Inc. has been a well-established business for over 15 years. Below are a few of our areas of expertise:

wastewater treatment
Thickeners & Clarifiers

Circular and Rectangular Thickeners

With a very long history of innovation in this field TPH rectangular thickeners offer greater flow capacities than traditional circular thickeners that carry the "high torque" concerns associated with their centrally-mounted rake drives. TPH systems are completely pre-manufactured and shop assembled prior to the coating process to ensure they assemble in the field quickly and without modification.

Unique and innovative design allows for higher mud densities along with greater weir space to create reduced rising current conditions that can result in the “scouring” of settled mud into the clean water stream.

Single unit flow capacities up to 6000 gpm.

Belt Press
Belt Press
Tons Per Hour, Inc. offers Andritz belt presses for every application. The Andritz "Aggregate Press" was developed as a joint venture between the two companies. Many installations later, we can assure our customers we offer the most cost effective belt presses available anywhere.

TPH has aligned itself with many of the leading domestic pump manufactures to meet customers’ specific needs.

Focusing on field parameters to select the right pump for the application will always lead to the most cost effective long-term solutions in this highly technical area.



As with many suppliers in the field, TPH offers a complete line of liquid and powder flocculant and coagulants, all manufactured by very large, multinational chemical companies who carry the same basic products. What sets TPH apart is the approach to the application of the chemistry which demands careful analysis and consideration of field conditions in order to deliver the most cost effective solution.

Mixing, aging, delivery and control of the chosen chemical is as important as chemical selection. TPH offers and manufactures a wide range of solutions and equipment backed by many years’ of practical field experience. From the ‘Silver Bullet’ bulk handling of dry flocculants, including metering, mixing, aging, delivery and control, to the simplest floc pump for the metering of liquids, TPH can give you the means to control the chemical costs associated with liquid/solids separation in your plant.

Engineering & Custom Fabrication
