Building on its long tradition in the industry, ABS has broadened its scope of treatment applications and merged all brands and businesses into a complete offering of wastewater technology solutions.

"Customers will benefit by obtaining process solutions and knowledge from one company" says Peter Aru, President of ABS. "The new profile and logotype support our shift from supplying products to applying knowledge, and being a complete solution provider throughout the wastewater process. The new logo represents the values associated with our company and our new strategic focus".

The booth at the international IFAT fair in Munich, Germany, April 25th - 29th will be highlighting the water cycle, presenting process solutions for the following applications:

  • Lifting Stations/Pressurized Systems
  • Pumping Stations
  • Wastewater Treatment
  • Effluent & Stormwater Pumping

Complete Solutions in Wastewater Technology

For the first time at IFAT, ABS exhibits its complete solutions in wastewater applications, featuring thorough expertise in aeration technology, compressors, control & monitoring and service & asset management.

The combination of the well-known ABS NOPON submersible aerator mixers and disc diffuser systems with ABS High Speed Turbocompressors makes a complete engineered solution that offers truly reliable aeration processes and energy-savings for treatment plants. The range of control & monitoring equipment has been completed with new series of controllers for pumping stations; PC 11/12 for basic domestic applications, and the sophisticated PC 20/21 for use in commercial buildings and in municipal applications, equipped with optional telemetry and colour display. Also ABS control & monitoring software AquaVision will be presented, with new web functionality for smooth and flexible alarm handling and surveillance. Furthermore, ABS presents a new alarm handling device; a telemetry unit for retrofit and upgrade.

Among other product news is the ABS submersible sewage pump, AFP-ME, reducing operating costs thanks to the unique CONTRABLOCK hydraulic system for blockage-free pumping. Lower power consumption is supplied by high efficiency motors. Serviceability and maintenance are optimized thanks to modular design and a new closed cooling system. Also smaller ABS sewage pumps up to 22 kW will be on display with optional closed cooling system and added high head hydraulics, as well as new submersible sewage pumps in stainless steel up to 125 kW. Other news at IFAT are additions to the ABS PIRANHA submersible grinder pump family, new versions of lifting stations SANIMAT and PIRANHAMAT for above ground indoor applications, and ABS lifting station SYNCONTA for below ground outdoor applications. Furthermore, new models of ABS submersible propeller pumps VUP will be displayed, as well as new impellers to the ABS submersible mixed flow column pump AFL.
