Newsletter - Water Treatment

Grundfos Semiconductor


Inside our wafer fab – or more precisely to the water treatment plant in front of our fab. Having probably the cleanest water (ultra-purified) in Denmark available for our wafer processes is ideal for getting a perfect chip in the end for our customers. Other water treatment processes are equally important for bringing the energy and water consumption to a minimum.

We take pride in taking our own medicine in supporting the UN goals 6 and 13 regarding water and climate change. By recycle and reclaim of used water, we have brought our original water consumption down to a third. Learnings, which we wish to share and bring to the attention to our prospects and customers within Water Treatment.

GRUNDFOS Direct Sensors™

The biggest energy and water conservation however comes from the use of our products. GRUNDFOS has several products within the water treatment domain, but in this newsletter we focus on pumps and solutions with GRUNDFOS Direct Sensors™ inside:

Solutions where better control regiments can save energy and water enabled by the intensive use of sensors.

Within sensors, we however also have to stay humble. We come from the heating and cooling industry, and water treatment applications are the latest to GRUNDFOS Direct Sensors™.  By opening up our doors to some of our deepest learnings, we hope that we can work on becoming a valuable and trusted partner of yours within water treatment. We already have some experiences:

In both internal and external applications, sensors have become an indispensable and often pivotal part for system monitoring and performance.

“…The fact that the sensors are connected directly into the pumps ensures a compact, but also cost-effective solution with our own products…”

says Sébastien D’Antonio, Senior Project Manager at GRUNDFOS.
