FlowChief stands for 100% web technology – always and without compromises. As a user this is noticeable.
As a site operator, Infraserv Höchst offers its customers comprehensive energy services. The company’s own EnergyXpert® portal solution based on e-Gem is an elementary component of the portfolio. Current configuration: 5,400 real meters, 7,000 virtual meters, 37,000 quality variables, approx. 80 different media and products, 70 companies, 800 different users.
Remote monitoring in real time – the SMA Solar Monitoring Center monitors commercial PV systems and PV power plants worldwide. Service experts ensure 24/7 that the customer’s systems function faultlessly and that the yields of the systems remain on the right course. The technology behind it is based on FlowChief.
A prime example of purposeful flood protection is the Sulm water board. All basins were connected to FlowChief via path redundancy in order to secure the application in case of catastrophe. A level overview connected to the association’s website enables the population to call up the current water levels.
Sewage sludge is dried in order to minimise its quantity and thus transport and disposal costs. SPANGLER has automated a Huber SE belt dryer with control technology from FlowChief. The dry material can be stored and opens up new disposal and recycling paths.
With a capacity of 85,000 inhabitants, Kitzingen’s sewage treatment is by far the largest in the district. In the catchment area there are 22 rainwater overflow basins, 10 pumping and 6 measuring stations. The employees themselves created more than 100 process pictures for the visualization with the FlowChief Imager.
SCHOTT, the technology group specialized in glass production, has been using FlowChief’s ISO 50001-certified energy data management system e-Gem since 2011. e-Gem acts as the company’s data hub. Energy planning, peak load optimization, billing and technical services continuously access the data and use it for their individual tasks.
The decisive factor for a FlowChief process control system was the uniquely integrated overall concept. Apart from the FlowChief process control system, there is no product on the market that offers an innovative and plugin-free web visualization with powerful historization, reporting and alarm platform in one application.

Every municipal plant and every company in the industry and medium-sized businesses is unique, has individual requirements for plants, partners, employees, suppliers – and of course also for software. A one-size-fits-all solution for process control systems, SCADAs, HMIs, remote control and energy management will never fit anyone perfectly. It will always be too extensive or too incomplete.
FlowChief is different: Our software can be infinitely scaled. You need a lean HMI system to control a small biogas plant? FlowChief can do it! You need a complete process control system to monitor and control the water supply of a large city, including visualization, trending and logging? FlowChief can do that.
With e-Gem we offer an energy management system that records all relevant data historically or in real-time. These are structured and processed according to your individual data. With a wide variety of analytical instruments and flexible reports, e-Gem is the ideal basis for your regular audits, e.g. as part of ISO 50001 certification.
The software platform was developed with a focus on the Internet and industry 4.0 and is completely web-native. You can access our software, and thus your plant, from any device in the world, with any browser and any mobile device. Secured, of course, by common security standards.
Through web-native development and years of experience in secure remote control technology, we are also able to offer FlowChief as Software-as-a-Service, including support and maintenance. You do not need your own servers and special premises, instead you control your systems from your office. FlowChief puts an end to restrictions.
