Removal of suspended-matter in the drinking water supply Energy-efficient operation of the open filter stage

Would you like a reliable filtration control system? Are you also looking for ways to optimize energy?

Phoenix Contact provides solutions for intelligent plant switching in the removal of suspended matter. With IoT-enabled energy measuring devices, you can keep an eye on energy data to reduce energy costs in the long term.

Acquire measured values and control dosing units

Sieve and filter systems are used after water extraction to reduce turbidity. Along with the necessary purification of the water, this also protects downstream plant parts. With Phoenix Contact solutions, you can acquire all process-relevant measured values from the suspended matter removal parts of the plant. An open control technology allows the process to be controlled easily and securely.

Our solutions for your processes

Rotary drum system
Acquiring energy data in the flocculant dosing process with a modular power measurement terminal
Open filtration stage
Rotary drum system

The first surface water processing stage takes place in a rotary drum system. The PLCnext Control family of modular control technology facilitates reliable control of filtration based on the measured values acquired through various standard interfaces.

Acquiring energy data in the flocculant dosing process with a modular power measurement terminal

In the agglomeration, the size of flocculation is controlled by applying energy. This is achieved via speed control. Monitoring the energy applied to the motors provides an opportunity for energy optimization. Acquire data with our IoT-capable EMpro energy measuring devices.

Open filtration stage

The open filtration stage operates according to the overflow principle, as the retention time of the water has a considerable influence on the purification performance. Easily integrate the safe control of the valves and drive technology into your network via Modbus, PROFIBUS, or PROFINET.

Flexible adaptation to your automation task Controllers with various performance classes are available within the PLCnext Technology framework. These enable the ideal adaptation to your specific automation task.

Topology: Controllers for specific automation tasks

The controllers communicate with the field devices via current and future communication standards such as PROFINET, PROFIBUS, and Modbus. The remote connection to the control level is realized with a common protocol such as OPC UA, DNP3 or IEC 60870-5-104.
