Designing & Manufacturing Industrial Wastewater Treatment Solutions – Since 1991

Locally owned and operated

Pan America Environmental, Inc. designs, develops and manufactures a wide variety of innovative industrial wastewater treatment systems to serve many industries and markets. Our designs are continuously reviewed and upgraded to implement our new ideas.

Pan America Environmental experience encompasses simple, single step applications to complex, multi-stage, multi-chemical reaction process installations with PLC driven control, fluid/solids handling sub-systems, sludge dewatering processes, chemical makeup and precision metering systems.

We offer continuous flow and batch chemical reaction systems, multi-stage-process reaction systems, pH adjustment, pH neutralization, dissolved air flotation, induced air flotation, slant plate clarifiers, inclined plate clarifiers (lamella clarifier), AQAM media filters, organoclay filtration, carbon filters, oil water separators, API separators, CPI separators, TPI separators, coalescing media and media packs, slant rib coalescers, emulsion breaking systems, car wash water treatment systems, wash water recycling systems, EnBio biological treatment and recycling systems, BOWTS bilge oily water treatment systems, groundwater remediation systems, control panels, pumping systems.

Our Slant Plate Clarifier plate packs, Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) and recycle saturation systems are offered for drinking water and municipal installations with pre-existing or new facilities requiring the latest in settling and flotation design to increase throughput and performance.

Custom, specialized systems are offered and designed for any particular facility, application and customer needs are regularly provided. Customization and specialized system packages are 80% of our daily business and we can find many ways to incorporate inventive solutions to current needs.

We provide equipment based on specific application criteria unique to your project in order to tailor the system sizing and configuration to your facility and site needs.

Pan America Environmental designs high quality systems and provides high quality industrial components from supportive manufacturers and suppliers to provide you with the best performance, lowest maintenance/down time requirements, fast reaction parts replacement and problem solving with excellent equipment life span and ROI.


To continuously improve your ownership, operating experience of our treatment systems and system performance/effectiveness Pan America has implemented a long-term, continuous product review program to improve existing products and develop new and better products.

Through ongoing product review using state-of-the-art 3D CAD design software, Computational Fluid Dynamics motion simulation software and structural mechanical simulation software we are able to R & D existing and new designs in house with higher design confidence, process physics comprehension and cost savings while enriching company capabilities and elevating our treatment designs.

Pan America Environmental, Inc. is a Wisconsin corporation established in the state of Illinois in 1991 for the design and manufacturing of Industrial Wastewater Treatment Systems. By marshaling technology and experience we strive to provide proven, reliable products the world needs and can use for decades to come through our use of quality practices, high performance designs and application assistance to tailor a system to the customer and project requirements.


We started in business by designing and providing oil water separators. Our designs were readily accepted in many markets such as groundwater remediation, machine shops, wash racks, fueling depots, fuel/oil tank farms and storm water treatment. Over the years we’ve applied our technologies in many other industries around the world as our national and international clientele grew. Since the introduction of our early oil/water separator systems we have added 7 different types of oil water separators, Dissolved Air Flotation, Inclined Plate Clarifiers, Slant Plate Clarifiers, TPI oil water separators, CPI oil water separators, Chemical pretreatment systems, emulsion breaking systems, Filtration systems, Batch treatment systems, Groundwater Remediation Systems, Vehicle Wash treatment, pH neutralization systems and API separators.
