Date:10/12/2010

HARLEYSVILLE, Pa., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Raymond J. De Hont, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Met-Pro Corporation (NYSE: MPR), announced today that the Company has acquired substantially all of the assets including the patents and technology of Bio-Reaction Industries LLC ("BRI"), a pioneer in environmentally friendly air pollution control systems utilizing state-of-the-art biological technology to eliminate volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), and odors.

"The acquisition of these assets significantly enhances Met-Pro's competitive position in both the municipal and industrial global markets by providing not only state-of-the-art biological technologies, but also a broad global reference base of satisfied customers," stated De Hont.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. It is expected that the acquisition will have no impact upon current year earnings but will be accretive to earnings in the Company's fiscal year ending January 31, 2012.
