for Water & Wastewater Treatment Plants
Do you face these challenges?
How we can help you – EcoAxis solution
In the water and wastewater treatment industry, there is a continuous demand on OEMs, O&M operators, and plant
owners to maximize output–both in terms of quantity and quality–to maintain process parameters at an optimum level,
to achieve high availability, and to maximize plant life while reducing operating costs such as man-power, consumables,
and energy. Highly complex and continuously evolving technologies in the ﬁelds of water treatment (for municipal,
industrial, and medical–purposes, efﬂuent treatment (including Zero Liquid Discharge), and sewage treatment add to the
overall complexity. This necessitates continuous and aggressive management of operation and maintenance practices to
realize high reliability of process equipment and low total cost of ownership of plants over several decades of plant
EcoAxis' solution provides a decision support system through continuous monitoring that can integrate plant operations,
consumables management, and maintenance processes to help generate information for data-driven decision making.
An informed decision can thus lead to savings in operation and maintenance cost, improved life, and performance of the
The continuous introduction of new technologies in water and wastewater treatment makes it necessary for plant
suppliers to validate new designs in the ﬁeld and help the end user manage the product and/or plant life cycle efﬁciently.
There is also pressure on the service organization which caters to a large, geographically-spread installed base.
Integration of service and supply chains is also a key challenge while deploying resources at remotely located sites.
O&M and BOO/BOOT operators
It's always a tight-rope walk for O&M operators to manage a plant with the highest possible efﬁciency at the lowest
possible costs and still meet the challenging KPIs of availability, throughput, and quality. Changes in quality and quantity
of raw water necessitate continuous process adjustments that need to be monitored by process experts. Avoiding
breakdowns by on-time or preventive maintenance and optimizing maintenance practices through condition–based
maintenance is the need of the moment. Issues such as scarcity of service resources and the availability of experts from
the head ofﬁce at remote sites add to the complexity of this challenge. Additionally, compliance with environmental
regulations with proper accountability is an additional deliverable which these operators have to fulﬁll
Keeping the total cost of ownership in control by efﬁciently maintaining and operating the plant with the maximum yield is
the biggest challenge for all plant owners. The end user also needs to simultaneously reduce the costs of consumables,
energy, and operation & maintenance while keeping an eye on depleting fresh water sources.
The lack of the right information to the right people at the right place and right time leaves plant managers and personnel
struggling to meet these challenges. Expansive plants and geographically distributed plant locations only compound the
challenges. A centralized online, real-time decision support system that can empower personnel with information on the
device of their choice i.e. laptops, mobile phones, or tablets can help meet these challenges. Such a system will involve:
1. Continuous monitoring of remote plant assets for real-time information on:
a. Critical process parameters like pH, conductivity, ORP, BOD, COD, etc.
2. Continuous tracking of critical process parameters that help to:
a. Identify and address deviations quickly
b. Track equipment health to instill and manage predictive or condition-based maintenance
3. Real-time reporting of KPIs like speciﬁc chemical consumption or energy consumption that help to keep track of
operational effectiveness and performance
4. Alerts for intimating plant users about critical plant conditions before they get out of hand
A.T.E. Enterprises Pvt. Ltd. (Business Unit – EcoAxis) has a machine-to-machine (M2M) technology platform – called –
SUPERAxis for continuous remote monitoring and analytics of discrete batch and continuous process plant & also
monitors utilities like energy, air, and chemicals and is a pioneer of this technology in the country.
SUPERAxis is a complete suite of hardware and software products integrated into a total solution. This includes
embedded data logging gateways, a data warehouse, and a software engine to deliver analytics in the form of reports,
dashboards on web or mobile interfaces, notiﬁcations over emails and SMSs, and bridges to enterprise applications.

The solution has been implemented in a number of applications including water and wastewater plants for municipal and
industrial processes, efﬂuent treatment, sewage treatment, chillers, cooling towers, and boilers.
SUPERAxis tracks critical parameters of water and wastewater treatment plant such as pH, conductivity, ORP, ﬂow,
pressure, pump run-hours, stoppages, chemical consumption etc. Monitoring of performance and maintenance on a
minute-by-minute (or second-by-second) basis, followed by managing the operation of the plant through advanced
supervision and diagnostic tools helps reducing plant operating and maintenance costs.
The hardware and software components of EcoAxis' solution help in acquiring critical data from various entry points such
as control systems (PLCs / DCS) of machinery, instruments, switchgear etc. It also facilitates manual data entry by
operators for laboratory test parameters like COD, BOD, MLSS etc. This data is sent to remote or local server over the
internet using either an Ethernet LAN or a GPRS or broadband connection. EcoAxis' software and database on the
server stores this raw data and creates actionable information using high-end analytic tools. This raw data and analytics
are made available to authorized users on any device, anytime, anywhere.
Ÿ Take informed decisions and allow greater ﬂexibility in plant operation
Ÿ Helps equipment attain peak operational efﬁciency through analysis of historic data of plant performance during various
running conditions and variance in inlet water quality
Ÿ Reduce maintenance cost by moving away from breakdown maintenance to condition based to predictive maintenance
by detecting defects early and carry out maintenance during scheduled shutdowns rather than through unplanned
Ÿ Increase plant availability by controlling and effectively managing unscheduled stoppage
Ÿ Tracking consumption of dosing chemicals and consumption helps optimizing the cost of a process
Ÿ Reduce travel to site by experts, especially in a multi-plant scenario where there can be a scarcity of experts.
