HEAVY METAL STABILIZATION
SCE owns and operates a Stehr soil stabilizer that can provide in-situ soil stabilization on a wide variety of projects. This unit is self-contained and provides mixing-in-place which turns native soil into high-quality material right on site. This technology takes the place of a pug mill or treatment plant and removes the need for multiple machines on a project. Our StehrSoil stabilizer SBF-24, equipped with binder spreaders, provides a dust-free scattering and milling operation. A 4CY hopper will hold the reagent or binding agent and apply it to the soil at a precise rate in a dust-free environment.
Lime (lkd) or cement (ckd) as binding agents are very effective, but also relatively aggressive when applied in a pug mill or ex-situ. This process makes soil stabilization near residential areas, roads, airfields and parked cars often impossible.
With SCE's Stehr unit, a binding agent is applied with an integrated machine and mixed into the soil in-situ.
A separate, costly spreading vehicle is no longer needed.

Heavy metal contamination is one the most common forms of pollution found in and around industrial sites, landfills, abandoned mining operations, and municipal and agricultural outfalls. In addition, heavy metals are used in a variety of industrial processes such as steel production, metal plating and anodizing, automobile and aircraft manufacturing, and general metal fabrication, just to name a few. Ultimately, all heavy metal wastes exceeding strict EPA environmental standards require adequate toxicity reduction and proper disposal.
