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 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.
Dipl.-Ing. Hermann Gruber
Government architect and Plant Manager of the Joint Water Supply Bayerischer Wald
To control and monitor our water supply, we depend on reliable process control technology. FlowChief offers all functionalities of modern control technology such as visualization, alarming and meaningful protocols excellently solved in one product. In addition, the software also comes with maintenance management, an ideal solution for recording all maintenance, processes and repairs.
Plant Manager Waterworks Schwabmünchen
Already in my former function as technical manager at another association I got to know and appreciate FlowChief. FlowChief is intuitive and easy to use. Furthermore you don’t need any programming knowledge for parameterization because of the easy to understand and comprehensive documentation. In addition to creating process screens, our employees also take care of connecting all PLC controls. If we still don’t know what to do, we use the reliable manufacturer support of FlowChief.
Managing Director Drinking Water Association Verden
FlowChief monitors all plant components in our association area. Very important for our daily work is the complete archiving of all plant data. With the functions integrated in FlowChief for trending and reporting we can monitor the plant function, detect leaks or uncover energy saving potentials. The functions display all data very clearly and the simple operation makes it possible for all our employees to work with them. We receive the data from various PLC controls in the waterworks or via telecontrol technology. The connection to FlowChief worked right away.
Technical manager of the water supply association of the Jachenhausen group
We support municipal utilities and smaller utility companies in setting up their own individual control technology. We have been using FlowChief for more than ten years. Why? Because our customers are very satisfied with it and FlowChief suits them perfectly. In addition to the very wide range of functions and the simple operation, the licensing policy in terms of economy and sustainability is absolutely fair for our customers.
Product Manager Automation Technology Süwag Grüne Energien und Wasser AG & Co. KG
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.
We are looking forward to your inquiries and comments.
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.
For almost 15 years, we have been using FlowChief process control and remote control technology. FlowChief has always relied on cutting-edge technologies such as pure web technology. These technologies enabled us to develop our ‘waldwasser’ web-visualization – an economical cloud solution for small water utilities. In the past, these were often simply overwhelmed by their own IT infrastructure. We are absolutely convinced of FlowChief, which is why we are fully relying on FlowChief in our new waterworks including the administration building: in the process control, in
energy management and in the building automation system.
