Innovative technologies for clean and efficiently used drinking water
World Water Day has been celebrated on March 22nd every year since 1993 to raise awareness of the importance of water to humanity. Austria is a country with plenty of water, but it is still important to take good care of the precious resource here. The Rabmer Group set itself the goal of not wasting water but using it efficiently many years ago and has developed innovative products for more sustainability.
Water is a very precious commodity and is becoming increasingly scarce, especially with rising temperatures and a simultaneous lack of rain. Of the 130 liters of average total drinking water consumption per day, up to 80 liters are used unnecessarily when showering. Rust and limescale deposits in pipes also reduce the quality of domestic water. With innovative technologies, Rabmer relies on clean, natural and efficiently used drinking water.
Environmentally friendly limescale protection
Austria is known for excellent drinking water, not least thanks to the high proportion of healthy calcium and magnesium. But it is precisely these minerals that are responsible for the formation of unpleasant limescale deposits. The result is expensive repairs, broken household appliances and machines, high cleaning costs and rising energy costs. Rabmer’s AQUABION® prevents corrosion and calcification – without the use of chemicals, salt, electricity or magnets. In addition, limescale stains on fittings and tiles are reduced or can be easily wiped off. Problems with rust and brown water caused by corrosion in metal pipes are also a thing of the past. Probably the greatest advantage of AQUABION®: the naturally good taste of the water is also retained.
Save water when showering
With the Austrian invention ECOTURBINO®, Rabmer offers the solution to save water quickly, easily and efficiently. With this small turbine, which can also be easily installed later, around 40% of the water and energy costs can be saved when showering. The special thing about the innovative ECOTURBINO® technology is that the shower comfort is retained. With the addition of air, the water jet is as strong as before. In addition to the large financial savings potential (up to 420 euros per year for a 4-person household), the ECOTURBINO® has another very positive effect: less energy consumption also means that less CO2 is released. A win-win situation for the environment and your wallet.
Heating and cooling using wastewater energy
In every household and company, a large amount of waste water is produced every day, as well as considerable amounts of industrial waste water, which are regarded as “dirty matters” and mostly flow unused through the sewage system into the sewage treatment plants. But from this supposedly dirty water, Rabmer uses innovative technology to extract efficient and clean energy for heating and cooling buildings. Because waste water energy is available all year round, around the clock, with an almost constant temperature level. The heart of the technology is formed by innovative heat exchangers, which are used to extract the temperature from the waste water. This is then increased again by means of heat pumps and made usable for heating buildings. In the summer, the waste water energy will then be used for room cooling. The heat pump works in the “reverse” way as a chiller.
