Drives and PLCs for the water and wastewater industry

Flow, level, pressure efficiently controlled.

Water and wastewater processes have to be efficient and reliable. Your pumps, conveyors and other motor driven applications all use energy, and optimizing those processes should be simple. Our variable speed drives and scalable programmable logic controllers (PLCs) feature built-in application functions to control flow, pressure and level; they can even help you see how much energy you are saving.

Whether you require low and medium voltage drives and PLCs in desalination or irrigation plants, in pumping stations, in municipal freshwater and wastewater treatment plants or for water and wastewater networks, we have a full automation portfolio of products. This offering includes motors for all applications, specified to your requirements. Additionally, with our global service network, you can tailor service and support contracts to meet your needs.

Built-in control, the reliability you expect, and saving energy. Everything counts when you are optimizing your water and wastewater processes.

Energy efficiency in the water industry

When we move energy from power generators to industrial use, huge energy losses occur along the chain. With ABB drives we can cut the energy losses almost in half.

Variable speed drives can help in solving the energy challenges we all face. Pumps are one of the most common motor applications and offer the biggest potential for saving energy because at half the speed only one-eighth of the power is needed.

EnergySave is a is user-friendly and interactive energy saving calculator for comparing AC drive control against traditional flow control methods in different applications such as fan and pump.

Energy efficiency portalNearly 70 percent of all industrial electrical energy use goes to powering electric motors. Find out here how utilizing variable speed drives will save you energy and money.
