FWT Srl products are used in many application fields according to the specific technical requirements. Although each industry has its own peculiarities, it may be strange but same products can be utilised in very different areas. In some applications the difference within the metering pumps range is mainly in the performance (flow and pressure) requirements, whereas for controllers, the difference among the application fields is mainly in the sensors being used, each function requires its own type of sensor. Customer can be sure that from our team he will always receive the correct solution with respect to chemical dosing handling and measurement.
Water treatment is the industrial-scale processes that makes water more acceptable for an end-use, which may be drinking, industry (food, beverage, etc), or medicine. Water treatment includes a big variety of applications where FWT products are widely used in its whole extensive range.
Waste water treatment describes preparing water no longer needed or suitable for its most recent use for return to the water cycle with minimal environmental issues. Wastewater treatment is distinguished from water treatment by a general focus on disposal rather than use, although reuse is also possible, called water reclamation. Water reclamation implies avoidance of disposal by use of treated wastewater for various purposes. Treatment means removing impurities from water being treated; and some methods of treatment are applicable to both water and wastewater. FWT products can be used in the following areas with respect to the wastewater treatment techniques:
Cooling water circuits can be found in a range of industries all over the world. Normally circulatory cooling conditioned water is used where fresh water is not possible. Cooling water consumption is minimized and the whole system must be protected from corrosion, sediment and growth of biological organisms, which can lead to serious diseases such as Legionella: prevention has become the prime concern. Blow down operations prevents scaling and corrosion. Chemically conditioning of the make-up water by adding biocides thus disinfecting the water from germs and the growth of algae or biological organisms.
Swimming pool and Spa water treatment combines different
methodolies and technigues and is highly dependent on whether
it is a Public pool or a Private residential pool Public pools
are also divided in Municipal or Olympic pools and Pools that
are used in Hotels, Gyms, Aqua parks etc.
Spas in turn will have their own technical requirements. All of the above represent a serious challenge both for technical know-how and product proposal. FWT is happy to provide solutions for the following:
Fertigation is defined as the application of nutrients through an
irrigation system, a contraction of fertilization and irrigation.
Today, we routinely inject fertilizer solutions and suspensions into irrigation systems via calibrated injection pumps that insure precision over both space and time. This technique can reduce fertilizer application costs by eliminating an operation. It may also improve nutrient efficiency by applying them closer to where the plant needs them. Fertigation has increased dramatically in the past 15 years, particularly for sprinkler and drip systems. For drip systems, the expansion is mostly in horticultural and high value crops. In agricultural areas with declining water supplies, drip systems have also increased.
The need for irrigation is the main factor in fertigation because the irrigation system is primarily installed to provide water. The opportunity to fertigate is an added benefit.
CIP (Cleaning In Place) and SIP (Sterilisation In Place) systems are ideal in industries where hygiene is of the utmost importance and contamination must be avoided at all costs. Without dismantling any equipment, tanks, pipes and entire process lines can be cleaned, saving time and in turn money.
In electroplating, many different chemicals are used. Therefore, chemical fluid handling is a very important part of any electroplating process. FWT has been supplying extremely reliable, low-maintenance components and systems to customers in this branch for years.
Permanently rising requirements in prevention of epidemic
diseases as well as requirements for regular disinfection
in the intensive rearing of animals require careful and
responsible selection of disinfectants. This is valid for
breeding-, reproduction- and fattening operations for
swine, cattle and poultry.
FWT technologies can be also applied for small animal-keeping and many more, including:
The beverage industry is traditionally an area with particular high demands on hygiene and its related technologies. Impeccable hygiene is needed to maintain the high quality standards and shelf life of the end product, whether it is beer, lemonade, mineral/drinking water, fruit juice or wine and sparkling wine.
Perfect hygiene has first priority in the food industry. Therefore, FWT provides for highest standards in cleanness right from the beginning: with reliable complete solutions for water treatment and hygiene in the entire production chain and for all food branches.
On any type of ship, being a cruiser, ferry, cargo or any sailing ship, there are many different tasks when it comes to water treatment: drinking and waste water treatment, bathing water and process water treatment.
Biotechnology is the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make products, or "any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use"
