FlowChief offers the technologically leading process control system for all processes of modern water applications from water extraction and treatment to storage and distribution.
After being extracted from groundwater, debris, surface water or dams, the raw water undergoes various chemical or physical treatment processes. Depending on the quality of the raw water, germs are killed, particles filtered or the water hardness reduced. The result is high-quality drinking water, which is supplied to the drinking water network via pure water storage tanks and pressure boosting stations.
Water is extracted and distributed via a network of wells, elevated tanks and pumping stations. State-of-the-art measurement and control technology is safely connected to the central control technology. The supply of the population is often ensured by emergency and cross-connection systems between different networks.
Meter shafts are used to record current consumption data. This data is used for direct offsetting or requirement analysis. Furthermore, leakage losses can be determined from the consumption data.
HTML5 web technology is changing the world of control technology. Gone are the days of high-maintenance workplace installations with limited ease of use and ongoing incompatibilities between products or operating systems.
FlowChief is completely designed in pure web technology and, from the very beginning, developed to be applied in the web browser. No matter if control desk, office workstation, mobile notebook, tablet or smartphone, you connect without further installation with your application in the intranet, via the private cloud or securely via the internet. Your FlowChief system is accessible from anywhere in the world and is not limited to pure visualization. To us, 100 per cent web means full functionality in visualization, graphs, protocols, alerting or maintenance management.
FlowChief is developed for operation in critical infrastructures. We rely on 20 years of experience in the development of secure web applications and remote control technology.
FlowChief systems can be upgraded at any time to a highly available and fail-safe redundancy solution. This maximization of availability prevents blind flights or data gaps, which can always occur due to network, communication or server hardware failures. FlowChief redundancy is based on Microsoft's failover clustering. All system functions such as browser visualization, communication, archiving, charts, reports or alarm management are still available even in case of failure.
With the FlowChief operating log for water suppliers you fulfil your obligation to provide evidence comfortably and effortlessly. A complete recording, easy maintenance and extensive evaluation possibilities set new standards. The FlowChief operating log is concise and easy to use and is a program from the practice for the practice.
Integrated monitoring functions enable fast and reliable detection of pipe bursts and leaks in the supply network. Deviations are quickly monitored by fixed or dynamic limit values (min/max). The monitoring refers to a longer period of time, which is necessary for a correct recording of consumption values.
A great variety of Data loggers can be found on the market, but here the wheat separates from the chaff very quickly.

The municipality of Mühlhausen operates a municipal waterworks, one main and two secondary sewage treatment plants. SPANGLER combined the systems with FlowChief technology into one central control system. This allows the operators to switch to the different plant components from any location without an employee having to be on site.
Waldwasser invested 35 million euros in Europe’s most modern waterworks and administration building in the district of Deggendorf (Bavaria, Germany). Solutions from FlowChief are used in the waterworks, in energy management and in the building management system.
You are unique as a customer and so is your project. We know this from 2,000 projects that have been implemented by our system integrators and ourselves.
Our services include:
Climate change is making it increasingly difficult to obtain drinking water globally. The safeguarding of quality standards is also becoming more and more complex, not least due to the industrialization of agriculture. Overall, the infrastructure needed to ensure a high-quality water supply is growing continuously.
As a water supplier and plant constructor, you are challenged every day to get a grip on the scarcity of water resources and increasing pollution. For this purpose FlowChief offers the technologically leading process control system for all processes of modern water applications from water extraction to treatment, storage and distribution.
