La nouvelle usine automobile de KIA Motors, sise à Teplička nad Váhom, en République Slovaque, a une consommation supérieure à 120 mètres cubes d'eau de procédé par heure. L'eau destinée à la préparation de peinture automobile doit être très pure et de qualité conforme à des paramètres définis.

Après leur fabrication, les pâtes comme par exemple les tortellini sont précuites dans une eau salée. Pour ce faire, une solution salée à 24% est dosée et contrôlée via une mesure de conductivité inductive. La valeur déterminée est environ 20 mS. Lors du remplissage des installations, le dosage s'effectue via un compteur à eau proportionnel.
Des banquises de l'antarctique au fond des océans : les scientifiques du Alfred-Wegener-Institut für Polar- und Meeresforschung (AWI) analysent les zones polaires, les océans et le littoral.

Avant la mise en vente de la salade, il faut au préalable s'assurer que la surface des feuilles soit convenablement nettoyée et la germination maintenue à son minimum. Les parties coupées ou cassées des feuilles sont particulièrement sensibles à l'infestation des micro-organismes et prennent rapidement une coloration brunâtre.
Les processus de remplissage mécanique cadencés génèrent des exigences élevées pour les équipements de dosage requis. Et ce d'autant plus lorsqu'il s'agit d'introduire une quantité réduite et très précise de liquide en un temps extrêmement court (quasiment à la seconde).
Economies de près de 40 % en termes de produits chimiques de désinfection et de consommation en eau fraîche pour l'usine laitière de Crailsheim.
