EUROWATER has subsidiary companies in 14 countries servicing our customers through 21 local offices. The relationship with our employees, customers, and collaborators is built on long-term relations. The international aspect forms the basis of a broad trade of experiences and places us among the leading manufacturers of water treatment plants in Europe.
Plants for treatment of certain types of metalliferous wastewater. This type of plant is used in industries where the residue of heavy metals is too large to fulfil the authorities’ requirements for wastewater disposal. Selective ion exchange is a supplement to a conventional treatment plant.
Selective ion exchange plant, type SEL-FNS, is produced in five standard modules - all with automatic regeneration.
Most often, dosing is used for pH-adjustment of boiler water, cooling water, and district heating water as well as for protection against corrosion and precipitation. In connection with other water treatment, dosing pumps are typically used for admixture of disinfectants, flocculants, and scale inhibitors.
The dosing pumps of the standard program are carefully selected with a view to offering complete water treatment solutions of high quality. Reliability of operation and precision are central parameters.
In many cases, dosing forms a natural part of the complete water treatment plant. EUROWATER markets various types of dosing pumps to cover as many needs as possible. A complete dosing plant comprises dosing pump and tank for additive.
Above, you see an example of a fully equipped container. The container has been designed for a power plant and the water will be used for cooling water (8 m³/h), boiler water for high pressure steam turbine (6 m³/h), and drinking water. The container includes the following plants: Active carbon filter, pressure filter plant, softening plant with brine tanks, dosing stations, bag filters, doubble-pass reverse osmosis plant, dealkalization plant, booster pumps, and control cabinet. The shown container is insulated and equipped with door-in-door, light, and air-conditioning.
A water treatment solution consists of several treatment steps, e.g. filtration, softening, and demineralization - all controlled from a central control cabinet. These units must be put together on site. If the end-user or the contractor is uncertain if the installation can be carried out locally within the determined economic and temporal scopes, it can be an advantage to order a water treatment plant (container or frame-mounted) which is ready for use when supplied.
The solution is complete with all internal piping and wiring factory-built. The whole plant has been performance and pressure tested in our factory. This safety can be achieved with a EUROWATER frame-mounted plant or a container-installed plant.
With a container, you also have the advantage that the container itseslf is an actual building which in this way can be left out in the project. The containers can be delivered with and without insulation and can be equipped with lighting, air-conditioning, door-in-door, emergency shower, etc. We have constructed many different custom-made plants adapted to specific demands and wishes. Below, you can see different examples of this. We are happy to make quotations for start-up of plants and training of the operating crew.

The shown plant is mounted on an epoxy-coated, construction iron skid with drip tray.
The plant is designed for 9 m³/h and consists of filter bags for removal of mechanical impurities, scavenger plant for removal of organic, suspended matter, demineralization plant, plant for neutralization of regeneration chemicals, and a central electric control cabinet.
Reverse osmosis units are used for production of demineralized water without use of hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide. Among other things, the units are used in boiler houses, district heating plants, hospitals, dialysis centres, and laboratories, for process water in the pharmaceutical industry and the chemical industry, as well as in connection with humidification plants. RO units remove pyrogenics as well as bacteria and cause no wastewater problems. The units remove up to 90% of the organic substances and retain 98-99% of the salt in the water.
Storage and handling of acid and lye are avoided. The units are extremely space-saving thanks to the compact design. The plants are of high quality, need minimum maintenance, and the reliability of operation is very high.
Flow rates for standard modules: 50 l/h - 60 m³/h. RO plants are either produced as standard modules or custom-made according to requirements. The units comprise selected components of high quality. They are automatic with electronic quality monitoring.
There are many possibilities of custom-made solutions. Nearly all parametres and components can be varied and combined. EUROWATER has great experience in producing RO pipe systems in many types of materials such as PP, PE, PVDF, and stainless steel. The foundation and frame, too, can be delivered in stainless steel.
Nanofiltration is often used for treatment of drinking water and industrial process water.
Reduction of sulphate, chloride, and fluoride
Partial softening without use of regeneration chemicals
Industrial process water
Partial softening and reduction of colour and humus from surface water in e.g. the iron and metal industry and paper mills.
Nanofiltration or reverse osmosis?
Reverse osmosis is typically used for demineralization of water, since this filtration method covers the widest field of application (see the diagram). Nanofiltration, on the other hand, is applied in order to reduce unwanted components in full or in part. Unlike reverse osmosis, nanofiltration applies a lower pressure, typically under seven bar, resulting in lower energy consumption compared with a reverse osmosis plant with the same productivity.
You must also choose a nanofiltration plant over a reverse osmosis plant if you want a certain hardness, because a potential demineralization will make the water aggressive and lead to problems with corrosion in the supply network.
Designed for your needs
EUROWATER offers a broad product range of fully automatic nanofiltration units – based on our well-known modular standard system, which makes it possible for us to combine an optimal plant for your needs.
The technique behind
Nanofiltration is a membrane technology, which in its mode of operation and construction is very similar to reverse osmosis. A nanofiltration membrane primarily restrains divalent ions and larger molecules. When it comes to the filtration process, a nanofiltration unit is placed between reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration – see the diagram.
EUROWATER has supplied Denmark ’s largest and most modern UV disinfection plant for drinking water. High quality drinking water is vital and the UV treatment is an extra security measure to ensure clean drinking water by eliminating the risk of microbiological contamination. The operation costs are approximately 1 DKK pr. cubic metre. Click on the image to read more about the case.
UV light can efficiently reduce microbiological growth in water. UV radiation with a wavelength of 254 nanometers kills bacteria, viruses, algae, and fungi by destroying the DNA of the microorganisms. Disinfection by UV light is applicable to almost all water types.
The UV systems are developed and produced with a view to high efficiency, great reliability of operation, easy installation, long life, and minimum maintenance. EUROWATER offers comprehensive technical consultancy as well as training of operating personnel.

The plants are of packaged modular design which gives competitive prices. EUROWATER's standard range of products covers most requirements. The plants have a simple structure, are easy to operate, and the design is corrosion-resistant and compact. Frame-mounted plants are easy and quick to install.
Demineralization plants are produced as automatic, two-tank plants (co-currently and countercurrently regenerated) and mixed-bed plants in which the regeneration either takes place on site or on the basis of service. Mixed-bed is frequently used where stringent requirements for low contents of salt and silica apply.
Through dealkalization, the hardness and the bicarbonate content of the water are reduced, thus typically reducing the salt content in the water by approximately 75%. Used for production of boiler water and district heating water as well as process water in breweries.
Advantages and references
The need for blowdown of the boiler is considerably reduced compared to the use of softened water solely as boiler feedwater.
If the water composition is suited for dealkalization, the method is suitable for large boilers and it is inexpensive in operation.
When brewing, the bicarbonate content is important. This can be adjusted by mixing dealkalized water and raw water.
The plants are produced as one-tank and two-tank plants.
The tanks are made of steel and can therefore resist pressure fluctuations. They are also surface coated with PPA, a high-performance factory applied polyethylene coating. Thus, the filter tanks combine the strength of steel with the strong anti-corrosion properties of the PPA (C5-M).
A complete plant for production of boiler feedwater typically comprises
Our new series of compact units type CU:RO consists of complete reverse osmosis system together with pretreatment on the same stainless steel skid – ready for use. The concept brings you the following advantages:
pre-determined system with a range of standard options for pretreatment; makes purchase and design straightforward
factory-tested as a whole; leaving you with minimum risk of errors
frame mounting; makes a secure and quick installation
compact design with minimum footprint
The series includes 5 different sizes with standard output of demineralized water from 0.4 to 2.0 m³/h - each available with three options for pretreatment.
Proper pretreatment of the feedwater to an RO system is an essential factor for unproblematic, long-term operation. Clogging of the membranes by suspended solids, scale-forming minerals, and other impurities have to be prevented by appropriate measures. Hardness minerals can be removed in a softener, suspended solids in a mechanical filter, while free chlorine can be removed in an activated carbon filter.
You can select between the following pretreatment options:
1-tank softening plant
2-tank softening plant, parallel operation
2-tank plant with combined filling for softening and removal of free chlorine, parallel operation
