Ensure potable water safety

Fulfill environmental legislations and manage your risks in the drinking water treatment process

Increasing population, industrialization and climate change intensifies water scarcity. Water abstraction from wells, springs and rivers must be controlled to avoid irreversible damage to the local water balance. However, micro pollutants, hormones and other contamination make treatment challenges for safe drinking water more and more difficult. This results in more complex processes that need careful monitoring to ensure water safety.

Our Offering

The World Health Organization initiated the implementation of risk management systems and developed water safety plans to reduce the risk of contamination of potable water during abstraction, treatment and distribution. Safety plans mention that documentation management, instrument verification and maintenance strategies support the advanced quality management system. But this demands a high level of automation and online instrumentation. Endress+Hauser can support you with:

  • Container solutions for water body monitoring

  • An extensive portfolio for most measuring tasks in water treatment processes

  • Panel solutions for online analysis tasks and remote control solutions for periphery plant sections

  • Installed Based Analysis to identify critical control points and maintenance optimization, calibration and verification service

What you can do to protect our water

Water body monitoring

Water body monitoring

Endress+Hauser’s measurement container solutions are based on many years of experience in engineering, container construction and project management. On request, we even incorporate third-party devices and components to create a total turnkey solution. We have experience in engineering and designing customer specific panels and container solutions, which include standalone measuring points with independent power supplies, remote data querying and integration of third-party suppliers.

Easy maintenance and operation with Memosens

The solution for critical control points

A high degree of measurement accuracy is essential for safe monitoring of your critical control points. That's why we offer digital sensors based on our Memosens technology. These intelligent sensors have an integrated data chip in the head that stores raw data. The head can be easily replaced without disrupting the process and then recalibrated in the lab. This not only improves reliability but also enables predictive and easy maintenance.

Liquiline transmitter platform

Transmitter platform for all liquid analysis applications

Liquiline is the ideal platform for all liquid analysis applications and forms the basis for our state-of-the-art transmitters, analyzers and samplers. The uniform operation across all products offers convenience and ease of use and protects your process from operating errors. Liquiline’s standardized components optimize your spare part stock and provide significant cost savings.

  • Uniform operation for convenient, efficient and safe operation

  • Automatic sensor recognition speeds up commissioning

Ensure safe water distribution by reliable flow distribution

Reliable flow measurement

Flow measurement in the water distribution network is a basic and important control parameter. Leak detection, pump management and general flow balancing cannot be done without flow measurement.

  • Complete product portfolio of electromagnetic flowmeters specifically for the water industry

  • Corrosion resistance certified to EN ISO 12944 for a maintenance-free, dependable measurement

  • Increased measurement reliability thanks to advanced self-diagnostics concept

  • Installation costs reduced by flexible installation with unique “lap-joint flange concept”
