How to extend the life cycle of a water treatment plant?

Nov 12, 2019

Salher offers a wide range of services to increase the efficiency and the useful life of the plants supplied, among which its technical service stands out.

The counselling of Salher’s specialists is fundamental in the commissioning of the plants, the preventive maintenance and the impartition of theoretical and practical courses to those in charge of the maintenance of the plants, as well as the contribution of technical and informative manuals.

We work every day our design and manufacturing to achieve fully optimized and long-lasting equipment

Designing a water treatment plant requires a great investment of time and manufacturing the equipment that makes it up implies a no less important investment of money. Therefore, in Salher we insist on the importance of hiring a maintenance service with professionals from the sector or training courses on the proper functioning of the plants and their instrumentation.

The maintenance of the treatment plants guarantees their maximum performance and a longer useful life, reducing the costs of energy consumption and exploitation, while fulfilling the discharge requirements. The personnel responsible for maintenance must be qualified and prepared to carry out work according to the requirements demanded by the treatment plant, carrying out prevention, adjustment and troubleshooting work in a quick and efficient way.

One of the most important points for proper maintenance is to avoid prolonged shutdowns at sewage stations that result in unwanted costs and discharges that involve sanctions and environmental risks. Therefore, maintenance expenses should be considered as a profitable investment in the medium-short term.

Why is it advisable to conduct training on operation and maintenance of Salher water treatment plants?

Although the manuals of the plants explain their operation, it is in the field of work where the operation of the equipment and systems is really learned. The start-up of the plants by our technicians is fundamental for the understanding of the singularities of each treatment.

Likewise, transmitting this knowledge to the client on site is essential for the daily operation of the water treatment plant and its long-term preservation of its components.

Other services that can be hired through Salher to improve the durability or effectiveness of our plants are:


  • The technical telephone or chat service, included with all Salher brand products.

  • Punctual supervision visits.

  • The training courses.

  • Expansion studies of former customer plants to meet new needs.

  • The inclusion of new stages in the water line such as sludge treatment, primary treatments (automatic roughing, sanding, degreasing), conversion of biological sludge of low-load active sludge into MBBR.

  • The dumping statements.

  • Studies to fit plants in tight spaces.

  • Studies of new designs to improve the energy efficiency of plants.

  • The automation of existing plants.
