Your experts for the water and wastewater industry

Heidrun Tippe

Global Industry Manager Water and Wastewater

Water is our lifeblood. Consequently, there are the strictest requirements but mostly moderate budgets in the area of water and wastewater. We support our customers as experienced partners in keeping all standards and laws, increasing safety and yet working as efficiently as possible.“

Alan Vance

Industry Manager for Water and Wastewater, US

Future-oriented solutions with low total cost of ownership which prevail: We develop our products for the water and wastewater industry according to this principle. It is the digitalization which opens completely new dimensions to us, in particular. The simplest operation is the decisive criterion for us in this respect.“

Mastering applications for water and wastewater

Every person living in industrialized countries uses between 100-150 liters of water every day. Everyone of us pollutes 1.385 m³ of water annually on average worldwide. Producing and treating water is a top priority of the political and economic agenda in all countries around the world.

The operators of water and wastewater plants predominantly need effective solutions to the challenges listed below. These challenges have guided our experts for water and wastewater for many years in numerous applications installed by us:

  • Protect our water: The plant must run safely, reliably and demanded limit values must be adhered to. Ensure legislative compliance and water safety by relying on precise instrumentation. As we offer a wide array of different measuring principles and have more than 60 years of experience in instrumentation, we are able to advise you on the right instrument for your application.
  • Pump up your efficiency: The quality of our products is particularly seen in the most sophisticated wastewater applications. In addition, the housing density counteracts diffusion of hydrogen or ammonia in digesters.
  • Make planning a breeze: Our engineers accompany you in every step. You will find the suitable answer for your individual requirements in our complete portfolio through our Applicator.
  • Reducing material costs and maintenance expenditure: Our products manufactured in Germany recognize foam and partly verify and monitor themselves via Heartbeat Technology thus extending maintenance intervals. Furthermore, our broad portfolio which is based on a common platform technology, simplifies installation, operations and maintenance.
  • Simplifying quality and risk management: The portable water safety concept of the World Health Organization shows how risk and quality management are to be implemented in water treatment. Accuracy as well as precise measurements are critical and require instruments free of any interference.
