We have been engaged in water treatment for over 25 years – clean, safe and sustainable
We realize water treatment plants according to your individual ideas. Our goal is to provide economic processes and plants for an optimum water treatment. From the optimisation of existing water treatment processes to the construction of complex plants for large-scale industries ATN combines innovative technologies with highest standards.
The demand for special treatment processes is growing steadily. One reason for this is increasing water demand and growing awareness of geogenic or anthropogenic water contamination and associated risks. Due to increasing water demand, geogenically contaminated water must be used. On the other hand, frequently our groundwater or surface water used as drinking water is contaminated with micropollutants. We must use, adapt or develop processes that selectively remove individual elements or chemical bonds. Uranium, arsenic, radium, fluoride, bromide, and pesticides are already removed today. Depending on how the water will be used, these elements are removed without changing the essential characteristics of the water to be treated. The processes used include, for example, membrane processes, ion exchangers, adsorption, and oxidative methods with UV-light. We are responding to these challenges, and if needed we can work out a customized solution for any special requirements you may have.
1992: foundation of the company
The company Aqua Technology Nörpel was found in October 1992 by Dipl. Ing. Clemens Nörpel as an engineering office. In addition to consulting and planning assignments for water treatment plants especially in the food and beverage industry, the company`s portfolio further included the distribution of UV disinfection equipment.
1993: first patent application
In 1993 the first patent "water savings in the bottle washer" was applied for. The development of own and new technologies that are mostly patent protected, shapes until today decisively the actions of the company.
1996: transition from pure engineering office towards a plant manufacturer
Assumption of overall responsibility for planning, construction and commissioning of water treatment plants for the food and beverage industry, as well as horticultural farms. Extension of existing regional partnerships and creation of strategic alliances for the realization of different projects.
2004: First large-scale project for a water treatment plant in the beverage industry
lanning and construction of a water treatment plant for a major international beverage production and bottling plant. When planning this water treatment plant one had to consider the full range from fruit juices to fruit juice beverages and soft drinks until non-aerated and carbonated waters. Other relevant water installations were the general operation, the operating technologies as well as the filling process. In order to perfectly supply various business and production areas different water qualities had to be defined. The core of this water treatment is a multi-stage reverse osmosis for desalination. Other functional units are aeration, sand filters, pumping stations with UV equipment, ozone impregnation, activated carbon filters, fine filtration with integrated UV device etc.
2010: Relocation to the new office building
In order to meet the increasing requirements, the company ATN had to look for a larger office building. The new campus is located in Mönsheim near Pforzheim.
2014: Largest order in the company`s history successfully handled
Completion of an entire water treatment plant for table and soda water for the largest Thai brewery. Besides the conception, design, engineering and piping design the project further included the supply of individual components, prefabricated units and switchgear, as well as the equipment installation and the commissioning of the entire water treatment plant.
