For all fluids. For all those who need solutions to costly problems.
„Process technology deals with changes in substances. But sometimes, substances have a tendency to undergo undesirable changes. My job is getting things out of industrial fluids that shouldn’t be there. In that sense, I deal with superfluous things.“

Water is more than just a precious, naturally limited resource; it’s a key factor in business. Clean water is essential to every production facility.
But in most cases, water of the right quality is not available, and producing it is a complex and costly process that requires the right process technology.
Finding a solution to a process-related problem in industrial production is never straightforward. All fluids are different and each one entails unique challenges. In many cases, targets are not met and it becomes apparent that there is a problem that is causing damage.
Technical forensics helps to learn from past mistakes
‘Technical forensics’ refers to descriptive, retroactive investigations of incidents that have occurred – examining the ‘who’, ‘what’ and ‘why’. What is even more important is to learn from mistakes so as to prevent them in the future.
Are those stars? It’s fungi on the antiscalant! This contamination was introduced via the air in the room upon opening the container.
It’s good to solve a problem as quickly as possible. It’s better to solve the problem in a targeted, economically beneficial and forward-thinking way. The right thing to do is to get it right from the start.
I’m convinced that it’s always worth doing things right from the start. Any other way wastes resources, time and money and is ultimately the reason why you can’t achieve your goal.
We develop concepts for industrial users of filtration and membrane technology.
To achieve your goal, the path to the right process technology comprises several steps:
A: Defining the scope i.e. defining your goal
C: Finding solutions – get the best out of your systems
B: Analysing the problem – identifying potential fault points
E: Monitoring – making sure that it is operating as it should
D: Implementation – executing your concept
A: To solve problems and avoid faults, I need to understand your challenge. Defining the scope isn’t about my role. It’s about your goal. It’s important to define the scope as precisely as possible so that the path to your goal is clear.
B: In the problem analysis step, we pinpoint your issues together on site and investigate what problems arise and what process-related faults can be avoided.
C: We’ll present you with several options and implement the one you choose in an optimal manner. ‘Optimal’ means the solution that meets as many of your goals, desires and needs as possible.
D: While the equipment manufacturer implements your solution, we are on hand to support the process. Thanks to our implementation moni-toring, we ensure that your system truly meets your needs and helps you achieve your goals.
E: We check and document the results so that you can rest assured that everything is operating as it should. With monitoring, you can identify potential problems before they occur.
And when the familiar approaches aren’t viable, we can explore new options
