Green hydrogen

In recent years, manufacturers of electrolyser around the world have recorded increasing demand and, as a result, an expansion of production capacities.

Read more …

Ozone generators

Ozone is used in the pharmaceutical industry because its high oxidation potential effectively kills germs and successfully removes microorganisms and impurities such as organic substances, chemicals and odours.

Pharmaceutical water

Pharmaceutical water, which is produced specifically for pharmaceutical purposes, must fulfil strict quality standards. The microbiological purity of the water is important to ensure the safety of medicines.

Read more …

Pure steam

Pure steam is used in the pharmaceutical industry to produce pharmaceutical water and to sterilise production facilities in order to meet the high quality requirements.

Read more …

Reverse osmosis

The natural flow of osmosis from low concentration to high concentration is reversible when external pressure is applied to the highly concentrated solution.

Read more …


The TOC value (Total Organic Carbon) refers to the total amount of carbon compounds in a sample that can be attributed to organic substances.

In our Waterguide you will find in-depth Information on all aspects of water treatment

Water treatment describes the process of removing contaminants and pollutants from water to make it safe and/or pure for industrial or medical applications. Water treatment can involve a combination of different physical, chemical and biological processes such as filtration, sedimentation, disinfection, reverse osmosis and activated carbon adsorption. The goal is to produce water of a certain quality necessary for subsequent processes.
Water treatment is important in industry for various reasons. For example for:

  1. Process water: In many industries, water is used as a raw material in various production processes. Here it is important that the water used meets certain quality requirements and is free of contamination.

  2. Or cooling water: Many industrial plants need cooling water to regulate the temperatures in machines and equipment. The cooling water must be free of impurities to ensure the proper functioning of the equipment. Water treatment ensures that the cooling water has the required quality.

In medicine, water purification can be used in several ways. For example, in the production process of medicines and medical devices, pure water is often needed to ensure that the products are free of contaminants.

The water treatment also plays an important role in dialysis treatment, in which the blood of patients with kidney failure is purified. Thereby, the water must be extremely pure in order to prevent impurities from entering the patient's body. In addition, water treatment is also important in the process of cleaning and disinfecting medical equipment and instruments to ensure that they are free of germs and other harmful contaminants.

Water treatment in medicine is an important process that helps to ensure the safety and effectiveness of medical products and procedures. The water treatment units have special features of their own: They have an almost dead-zone free design with a high stainless steel content.
