    We need to save water and manage waste

    The increasingly frequent climate disasters and the shortage of resources for a growing population heighten the attention on the need to develop technologies aimed at saving and making good use of resources such as water and waste, with a view to achieving a circular economy and long term sustainability.
    For all companies engaged in developing these technologies it is crucial to use highly flexible partners with long-standing experience in the production of filtering elements, given that these components can be decisive for the performance of plants involving filtering and separation processes.

    Filtering elements for water treatment and waste processing

    Costacurta has been manufacturing a wide range of filtering elements – including wire cloths and meshes, perforated plates and wedge wire screens – for a wide range of industries and applications for over 100 years.

    Costacurta’s wedge wire screens and perforated plates are key components in water treatment and waste processing. The performance of the entire process often depends on these filtering elements.
    Costacurta’s components are manufactured in compliance with strict technical specifications and are suitable for highly specific filtering and separation needs.

    The main characteristics are summarized below.

      Flexible production and strict quality controls

      The high quality of Costacurta’s filtering elements depends on a number of factors including the choice of raw material. The materials and sizes of the wires and plates are chosen to meet the customer’s specific needs. The chemical and mechanical properties of the materials used are closely monitored and checked.
      Production is characterized by a high level of automation, the experience and skills of the operators and constant quality controls both during production and on the finished product using laser, mechanical and optical instruments.

      Tailor-made services

      Costacurta provides tailor-made services also for orders of small quantities and dimensions.

      Product development and consultancy

      Thanks to its long-standing experience in the production of a wide range of filtering elements (wire cloths and meshes, perforated plates and wedge wire screens), Costacurta is able to help clients choose the best filtering element for their process and performance needs and, if required, to develop specific components able to meet highly specific filtering and separation needs in accordance with strict dimensional tolerances.

      Project management

      The sales&project managers accompany clients throughout the project: from the request for a quotation to the selection of the component, its construction and installation, and after-sales support.

      Flexibility

      The company can fulfil specific requests, including orders of small quantities, guaranteeing a high service level thanks to the stock of plates and wires in different materials and dimensions.

      Stock Agreements

      When requested, Costacurta can keep a stock of finished products in quantities agreed on with the client that that can be collected when needed.
