Water Treatment Processes Require High-Quality Safety Solutions

The Water Treatment Industry - no matter whether you operate a sewage system or a water treatment plant - involves life-threatening applications, such as entering manholes, working with hazardous substances or the chemical preparation of water. Protecting all employees against hazards and keeping the plant running safely is pivotal during any water treatment process. 

Dräger combines deep application knowledge and high-quality safety solutions for your water treatment system.

Our Products for the Water Treatment Industry

Below we highlight the main applications within water treatment processes and provide product solutions that will help you protect your staff against possible hazards. 

Entering a manhole

Entering confined spaces is one of the more common applications. When entering, you face the combined risk of exposure to hazardous substances and decreased oxygen levels in sewage systems and water treatment plants.
