At the pioneering water treatment plant of the Landeswasserversorgung (state water supply company) in Langenau, Germany, one of the most modern in Europe, designers had several automation and control system options when planning to build a new ground water filtration system. After careful consideration, they ultimately chose a pneumatic automation solution from Festo for use in multimedia and activated carbon filtering basins.

 

 

 

Many industries around the world face challenges with corrosive environments, whether it is inside their facilities with air pollutants such as sulfur dioxide, or outdoors with corrosive factors such as water and salt fog. Corrosion is the single largest cause of the breakdown of machinery, structures, supports, and motor control equipment in a plant.
