Our solutions for your water treatment
We will adapt the equipment of your individual treatment steps individually to your economic and technological requirements. With our modular component system, we will always find the correct solution – from the high-end all the way to a cost-attractive basic version.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Suitable rinsing steps with permeate
In order to prevent scaling, the line contents will be rinsed with permeate when needed.
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.
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.
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.
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.
