Trucent announced that it has finalized the purchase of all the assets and rights relating to Advanced Separation Technologies (CentraSep®) and AST Leasing, collectively referred to as CentraSep.
CentraSep becomes part of the Trucent family of companies and will be known as Trucent CentraSep Technologies.
CentraSep brings an additional leading technology and strong market presence to Trucent’s portfolio: CentraSep centrifugal separators for liquid/solid separation. The company has a strong global presence in the solar panel production and glass grinding industries and is a market leader given the design, reliability, and overall fluid separation performance of its technology.
Trucent and CentraSep are no strangers to each other, with Trucent selling CentraSep centrifuges as part of its product offerings for years. Tom Czartoski, CEO and owner of Trucent, says “The CentraSep acquisition merges two great and complementary separation companies and elevates our game by adding a division with a talented team, and an established presence in North America, Asia, Europe and South America with the industry-leading technology.”
CentraSep has nearly 700 installations in 22 countries, with a significant presence in the brittle material industry, such as glass and ceramic grinding. Other market installations include wire drawing, wastewater treatment, food and beverage production, agricultural and biomass products, protein clarification, paint booth water filtration, and commercial laundry water reuse.
Both the Trucent and CentraSep leadership teams see this as an important step toward the future. The former AST/CentraSep operation will remain in Noblesville, IN, and Jeff Beattey, founder and CEO, will remain as the president of the Trucent CentraSep Technologies division.
