Water technology

Water technology

Having a responsibility for water means having a duty of care. Water, especially drinking water, has become a valuable and often expensive commodity. It is vital to ensure the efficient automation of water treatment and waste water processes ; this will reduce costs and at the same time, it provides the conditions for maintaining consistently high water quality. You can rely on our many years of experience in municipal and industrial water technology and you have the option of getting everything from a single source.

Innovative automation concepts

Modular production

Automation of modular production plants (modular automation)

There’s little you can do about strong fluctuations in the consumption and the quality of the raw water. But what you can do is ensure that your water treatment is able to manage this intelligently. This is where networked Industry 4.0 comes into play, together with modular automation from Festo.

Just four steps to modular automation

Integrity test

Fully automatic integrity test in ultrafiltration

You need to closely monitor the differential pressure between the inlet and the outlet in order to identify membrane leakages in good time. Festo recommends automated, decentralised pressure control and pressure monitoring for this function.
