      Water preparation for your product with character

      The purity law for your water

      Carbonated or non-carbonated, hot or chilled – regardless of how versatile our taste is for water, the demands for the basic elements of your product are just as versatile. With the Hydronomic water treatment systems, Krones provides an individual programme for careful treatment of your untreated water. Regardless if handling brewing or process water or raw material for soft drinks, juice or tea: With the Krones process technology, you will give your water exactly the character which will meet the requirements of your product and customers.

      MDS: Mineral dosing station
      Hydronomic MDS

      Thanks to the use of a mineral dosing station – in brief MDS module – you can remineralise your water exactly in line with your own formulas – for the highest possible flexibility and individualisation of your product.

      EDI: electro-deionisation
      EDI module
      Electro-deionisation (EDI) allows you to produce ultra clean, deionised water which then merely requires the addition of the desired minerals. The use of this kind of additional EDI module is particularly recommended in cases where the untreated water quality fluctuates. This is particularly important in the manufacture of still table water where there must be no deviation in the mineral composition of the product. 

      RO: reverse osmosis
      Hydronomic RO

      Variable output regulation and automatic yield control ensure the highest possible flexibility and minimise scaling on the membranes. The membranes can also be flushed with permeate to minimise scaling and biofouling.

      UF: ultrafiltration
      Hydronomic UF

      • The individual control of the filter modules in the Hydronomic UF guarantees uninterrupted production. Only ultrafiltrate is used during backflushing.
      • Filtration performance: up to 150 m³/h
      • Rinsing water consumption: max. 36 m³/h
      • Yield: Up to 99.9 %

      MF: media filtration
      Hydronomic MF/GAC

      • Filtration performance: up to 120 m³/h
      • Yield: up to 99.5 %

      Hydronomic MF/GAC (Media Filtration)

      The module filters and adsorbs any unwanted and undissolved water content (suspended solids and odorants, organics, chlorine, iron, manganese, etc.) with different filter media (e.g. silica sand, manganese oxide, basalt and activated carbon).


      Benefits to you 

      High hygienic standard

      The filtration line is fully designed in stainless steel. This way, the entire line can be fully satinised with hot water.

      Perfect filtration performance

      The so-called fill of the filter media is selected targeted and individually adjusted to the respective application. This leads to optimal filtration results.

      Gentle on the resources and the filter media

      Filter media that ideally harmonise with each other, prolong the filtration cycles and minimise the necessary frequency of back-flushing. This saves water and increases the life cycles of most filter media.

      Flexible line configuration

      The modular line construction enables an easy expansion of the Hydronomic.

      Hydronomic UF (Ultra Filtration)

      The Hydronomic UF uses the most up-to-date membrane technology with hollow fibres (pore size of 0.02 µm) for the ultrafiltration of water in in/out operation. Typically, ultrafiltration is also used to extend the production time of an (optional) downstream reverse osmosis system by additionally filtering the water.


      Benefits to you


      In order to reduce the energy consumption, hollow fibres are used for filtration. They require less pressure and offer a larger filter surface.

      Effective cleaning

      The In/out concept offers optimum conditions for the effective and safe cleaning of the hollow fibre membranes. The stainless steel option allows for sanitising the equipment with hot water and without the need of any cleaning agents.

      Non-interrupted operation – also during back washing

      Thanks to the bypass structure of the filtration elements, the individual modules can be cleaned during the operation by backwashing with the ultra filtrate. This way, the usually used decoupling tank and its belonging backflushing pump are not required.

      High-quality line concept

      The Hydronomic UF is equipped with high-quality components, both in its stainless steel design and in its basic version. This way, the line is designed especially for a long service life.

      Cleaning with filtrated media

      During the CIP process, the used chemicals are dosed prior to the ultra filtration into the untreated water flow and are therefore filtered before being used.

      Hydronomic RO (Reverse Osmosis)

      The Hydronomic RO module serves to desalinate water down to a usual residual content of less than three percent. The generated water is then especially treated/remineralised for the respective application.


      Benefits to you

      Economic structure of the individual banks

      If the conductance in the permeate is changed, the reverse osmosis elements can be tested inline and checked for malfunctions. Faulty elements can be replaced targeted and cost-saving.

      Economic in the use of energy

      Depending on the pre-pressure of the untreated water, the permeate performance is regulated. This provides a low energy consumption and a constant recovery rate.

      Long-term guarantee

      The investment in a stainless steel version which can be sanitised with hot water pays off: The omission of chemical cleaning agents increases the service life of the membranes. The guarantee is prolonged optionally by up to five years.

      Modular structure with long service life

      A long service life is achieved through the deliberate choice in favour of a modular system design and a high manufacturing quality. Thanks to their large overall size, there is only little stress on the membranes which therefore achieve long service lives.

      Suitable rinsing steps with permeate

      In order to prevent scaling, the line contents will be rinsed with permeate when needed.

      Step-by-step CIP sequences

      At the CIP process, the respective container can be filled with permeate and chemicals removed from it. The banks of the system are thus cleaned one after the other, or individually.
