Festo provides municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants an economical solution for in plant engineering and plant lifecycle management with a complete automation system.
Your objective: Fast and reliable processes of water treatment and wastewater treatment plants
Our solution: your partner for automation concepts of water treatment and wastewater treatment processes
Implement your projects with Festo - on schedule and within your budget:
Energy prices today are high and rising even further, forcing you as municipal or industrial operators of water and waste - water treatment plants to take action. What is required is the exploitation of potential for savings in all lifecycle phases of a plant, from plant engineering through to operation.
Competitive advantage through complete automation systems
A decentralized automation concept is for water or wastewater treatment plants more appropriate than a centralized automation concept. Because it is usually faster to implement and commission, it is easier and saves on resources at the same time. And our decentralized automation solutions are also absolutely reliable!
In a decentralized automation concept, in addition to the power cabinets in the control room, smaller cabinets are placed in a decentralized configuration in the plant. The remote I/Os installed and decentralized PLCs inside them process the electrical signals while valve terminals activate the actuators pneumatically. Flexible tubing bridge the few meters that generally separate the actuators of the process valves. The process control system is still centrally configured. It communicates with the remote I/Os and valve terminals by means of a continuous fieldbus line such as, for example, Profibus DP. Or over internal Bus-Systems in case of a decentralized process control.
