Filtertech Expands Their Line of Advanced Optical Lab Equipment

Filtertech unveils the LGEN-PAL System, first-ever spent
polish AND alloy water treatment system


Manlius, NY – November 20, 2018 – Filtertech announces the release of their latest system, the LGEN-PAL. This revolutionary system is the sixth addition to their advanced line of clarifying systems for the optical industry.

With three models; fully-automatic, semi-automatic, and manual, the LGEN-PAL is designed for all lens generating labs to easily treat spent polish and alloy waste water all in one system. The LGEN-PAL reclaims clean water from both alloy water and spent polish at the same time. The treatment allows thick, dry waste to be thrown away as a solid waste and clean water to be safely put down the drain.

With the possibility of fines being imposed as high as $50,000 for improper disposal, optical labs need to safely treat their alloy and spent polish water. With the creation of this new, easy-to-use system, Filtertech meets the demands of high-efficiency lens generation by safely removing waste. “With today’s growing concerns of environmental impact, Filtertech is proud of our latest system that will help the optical industry stay green while significantly reducing the high costs of using outside sources for spent polish and alloy water removal,” said Jamal El-Hindi, System Developer.

Filtertech also recently partnered with PSI (Practical Systems, Inc.), an independently owned U.S. manufacturer and distributor of quality optical lab supplies and equipment, to market and sell the LGEN-PAL system.

Other filtration equipment that Filtertech manufacturers specifically for the lens generation industry, include: the LGEN-P, a high efficiency coolant filter with single discharge point of heavy and fine solids; the LGEN-BR, a high efficiency swarf briquetter with 20:1 reduction; the LGEN-V, for high efficiency coolant filtration using vacuum; the LGEN-DS1, for pumping dirty coolant to a centralized filter system; and the LGEN-CFS, that automatically mixes your water and coolant to any percentage and doses with defoamer to keep the system running effectively and autonomously.
