SMS group has decades of experience in the construction of water management systems and offers comprehensive solutions in all areas of metallurgical plant and rolling mill technology.
We specialize in equipment for raw water treatment through cooling and process water circuits, right up to waste water treatment and water recycling. We take care of the necessary steps throughout all phases of the project: from the planning, delivery, and erection, right up to the commissioning and performance tests.
Customized solutions for all areas of water treatment
State-of-the-art plants and equipment – continually optimized
Resource-efficient water treatment and integrated environmental protection
Our special focus is on developing customized plant and equipment which we define jointly with our customers. To achieve this, we provide studies and audits in existing water management systems in advance. Whether it’s identifying potential savings, improving performance, or ensuring long-term environmental protection – SMS group is on hand with advice and support for all your needs.
The water management systems benefit from more than 100 years of experience in metallurgical plant and rolling mill engineering. This know-how ensures the optimized and reliable integration of water treatment plants into a production process that saves energy and water.
The water management systems are tailor-made to the capacity of the production lines and operate with a high degree of cost-efficiency.

|Chemical conditioning||for the avoidance of deposits (e.g. boiler scale), corrosion, and formation of algae, for improvement of water-cleaning|
Depending on the local situation, the cooling water systems can be designed either as primary or secondary circuits (e.g. seawater circuits, cooling of emulsion circuits or of rolling-oil circuits). Depending on the production process, a distinction is made between direct or contact cooling (contact with the process) and indirect or non-contact cooling (heat exchanger). SMS group can furnish perfected solutions for both options.
In conjunction with the cooling systems, all additional units belong to the range of supplies of SMS group:
- Units for filter sludge treatment
- For the treatment of make-up water
- Boiler feed water, industrial water
- For wastewater Treatment
- For utilities distribution
