Our e-Service: Optimum system availability worldwide


Briefly explained: What does Industry 4.0 and IIoT
(Industrial Internet of Things) mean?

The world of industry is permanently facing new challenges. This includes ensuring higher product quality in the shortest possible time. The solution: digitisation and automation. This is Industry 4.0. The link between the digital and real worlds is a powerful tool for using resources efficiently and making industry more sustainable.


In concrete terms, this means that in order to get the most out of our machines while using them as gently as possible, we need to get to know them better. The term "Industrial Internet of Things" (IIoT) refers to the process of collecting huge amounts of data from intelligently networked machines in industry. Who evaluates, understands and uses it efficiently, benefits from a continuous optimization cycle and thus from high system availability and optimal machine performance with less wear.

What does IIoT mean for the VACUDEST?

By using the IIoT for the VACUDEST, our networked services not only give you an overview of your water treatment performance, but also prompt recommendations for optimization.

Your advantages


Optimum system availability and constantly high preparation performance of your VACUDEST


Time and operating cost savings through an optimized system


Service cost savings through preventive corrective measures


Easily accessible overview of the achievement of the expected savings of your VACUDEST


The Vacutouch
Machine control

The heart of our IIoT is our convenient Vacutouch machine control. All data and analyses can be retrieved conveniently and can be used, for example, for predictive maintenance or optimization of the wastewater process.

Benefit: You save service costs


Quick identification of performance losses

Benefit: You increase system availability through a long-term high-performance system


Specific recommendations for action to optimise machine performance

Benefit: You save operating costs and increase system availability


Cycle by cycle, also tracking down creeping performance losses

Benefit: You save operating costs and increase system availability


One page, one look, all the information on your wastewater treatment in an easy-to-understand traffic light system.

Benefit: Your savings in black and white - perfect for environmental audits and internal monitoring.


Advantage: Predictive maintenance

Increase the system availability of your VACUDEST through needs-based, preventive maintenance and make sure that your system runs safely, stably and without downtimes. At the same time, you can save up to 80 costs, because in the event of a loss of performance, early intervention and an on-site service visit can often be prevented.

H2O Maschine

Efficient process optimization: The Vacutouch control transmits
the data from the VACUDEST directly to our technical customer consultants.

Advantage: Long-lasting high machine performance

To give you an even better overview of the efficiency of your VACUDEST vacuum distillation system, we provide you with automatic, digital analyses that show you how well your system is running and where your processes have potential for optimization.

H2O Video Meeting

Your system is optimized perfectly via remote access. This saves time,
money and ensures optimum system availability in the long term.
