EnviroChemie rolls out Industry 4.0 worldwide remote maintenance
Press Release | EnviroChemie GmbH
AUGUST 06, 2015
Rossdorf, Germany: – Water treatment specialist EnviroChemie has made major investment in an innovative, reliable remote maintenance system for pharmaceutical and chemical water treatment plants worldwide.
The new system uses dedicated central servers and integrated software to enable Smart Factory operation in line with Industry 4.0 concepts of an Internet of Everything (IoE) in which cyber-physical systems can communicate and cooperate with each other and humans in real time.
Starting in 2015, all new Flomar and Lugan series flotation plants, Split-O-Mat precipitation and filtration plants, Envochem series wastewater treatment plants, biological Biomar series and Envopur membrane technology will leave the EnviroChemie factory completely pre-configured for remote maintenance and connectivity from Rossdorf.
The new connectivity represents a major upgrade from the remote service connection via Internet that EnviroChemie previously built into its systems.
Previously, connection of the customer’s plant control to the EnviroChemie service point was individually accommodated with different hardware and software systems.
Now, to ensure continued system upgrades and to offer customers the highest possible levels of availability and data security, EnviroChemie has moved to a more integrated and standardized system.
New server farm
During the first half of 2015, EnviroChemie has set up a central server farm at its Rossdorf headquarters.
“All connections from plants to the service headquarters or to service technicians at other locations will be managed there to ensure structured access management, archiving and backup of function processes in the respective plants,” Gottlieb Hupfer (CEO) explained.
The server farm will also handle plant networking and central backup of data from the ASIC Acron archiving database or other data archiving systems.
With this IT investment, EnviroChemie is bringing Industry 4.0 concepts to water and wastewater technology.
EnviroChemie GmbH has established a reputation for reliable and innovative technology for water and wastewater treatment, specializing in developing and implementing customized solutions for customers in the pharmaceutical industry and life sciences.
This ISO-9001 certified engineering company was founded in 1976 and offers a holistic range of “Made in Germany” branded products and services based on chemical-physical, biological and membrane filtration processes, whose pedigree relies on its long list of research achievements and patents.

EnviroChemie can apply unrivalled experience to continuous development of innovative and reliable industrial water and wastewater technologies.
EnviroChemie specializes in supporting customers in projects, where effluents must be specifically treated in order to:
- Abate trace elements by concentrating them (e.g. reverse osmosis and vacuum distillation)
- Inactivate streams containing biologically active ingredients (e.g. vaccines, antigens, etc.) by means of thermal sterilisation technology
- Eliminate pharmaceuticals implementing advanced oxidation processes (e.g. ozonation)
- Generate green energy (biogas) from digested organic matter (COD) implementing anaerobic treatment technology (e.g. at insulin production facilities).
