Professional water treatment is guaranteed wherever BWT is involved - in building technology, hospitals, trade and industry and the supply of water to communities and cities.
BWT will advise you, from the initial water analysis stage through to commissioning and maintenance of your water treatment plant, based on your specific needs. All our processes are carried out with maximum efficiency and implement all the legal, technical and commercial safeguards.
BWT offers specific solutions for a wide variety of industries, regardless of the existing water quality and the needs the water ultimately has to satisfy:
Water and its composition vary according to the region, the settlement and the geological nature of the terrain. Some regions have pure water, others have water rich in calcium or iron, and in some places the water is contaminated with pollutants. Climate change and a growing population mean that, in many parts of the world, the water must be treated to obtain optimum drinking water quality, which makes it a top priority to adopt a responsible approach to this increasingly precious resource.
Specifically to meet the growing demand for water in large residential complexes, BWT has developed Pearl Water systems for turning hard, calcareous water into soft water with a low calcium content. Water that is too hard leaves unsightly deposits on fittings, tiles and glass, and can also lead to a build-up of limescale in the pipework or equipment and ultimately to costly repairs.
BWT’s Pearl Water systems are also guaranteed to operate hygienically, efficiently and economically with a minimal use of resources, so that all those living in residential blocks can enjoy the benefits of silky-soft BWT Pearl Water.
Specific guidelines and legal stipulations must be observed when planning treatment plants for steam and hot water boilers with flow temperatures of over 100 °C. It is a false economy for plant operators to try saving money on professional planning and design, as heat-generating deposits and corrosion can lead to faults, high operating and repair costs, and even to a depreciation of the system.
A heating system consists of many individual components: boilers, buffer tanks, pumps, control valves, etc., and the various parts must work together seamlessly to ensure efficient, reliable operation. A decisive factor in the efficiency of a heating system is correct treatment of the heating water that comes into contact with most of the components.
Water is used for numerous processes in the technology sector, and the choice of treatment technology depends on the quality of the water on site. BWT has many years of experience in a wide range of applications: laboratory and rinsing water, wood-drying systems and the production of mineral water and also test water, which is used, for example, to carry out standardised tests on washing machines.
Technically pure water, i.e. purified water, is indispensable for the pharmaceutical industry, for laboratories and for a wide variety of industrial production processes. Unlike drinking water, purified water is totally free of additives, including minerals, calcium and other impurities.
Only a tiny percentage of the world’s water reserves, just under 1%, can be used as drinking water for humans, and this is further complicated in some regions by an inadequate, or total lack of, access to a supply of clean drinking water. BWT has developed seawater desalination processes that turn salt water into precious drinking water.
An independent, secure water supply is essential, even for companies in regions with a poor infrastructure. Sea water is playing an increasingly important role in tourism, for example, because only a fully-functioning, reliable water supply will ensure that guests can enjoy a relaxing holiday, with access to clean drinking water and silky-soft Pearl Water in the pool and spa.
BWT has many years’ experience in sea water desalination. Not only do we guarantee low operating costs, but we can also reduce energy consumption using integrated energy-recovery systems.
Our objectives are to produce drinking water of the highest quality, to use our increasingly scarce water resources in a sustainable way and to make a real contribution to the protection of our environment.
