The filtration is one of the most important treatments to which primary water, treated wastewater or sea water are subject, in order to use them. It consists in the removal of small-sized particles, particularly light and difficult to remove by other type of treatment.
In nature the filtration takes place through soil layers having the most varied chemical and physical characteristics. The same effect is produced with various technologies such as the filtration by gravity and filtration by pressure and by using filtering media as sand, quartz, active carbon, fabrics and special felts, cartridge filters and others.
The filtration processes proposed is suitable for the filtration of potable water, for the removal of iron and manganese, for tertiary treatments of municipal and industrial sewage, for the treatment of sea water.

By Using different communication protocol we offer one of the best low-volume information transfer system ideal for utilities or companies requiring monitoring or control small volume of information appliances.
Our system creates a network of objects that communicate with eachother, interact or accept remote commands and automatically connect to the Internet.
Our IOT communication network implements radio link type Ultra Narrow Band techniques (UNB) in a range that does not require licensing across Europe (868 MHz) cost offective, two-way transmission of small amounts of data expanding greatly battery life (about 10 years) and service of connected devices.
Finally it has a high penetration capacity even in places where conventional technologies usually face big problems.

LORA- IOT NETWORK SERVER
LoRa™ (acronym of Long Range) is a modulation technique designed by Semtech that guarantees long-range communications that compete with present technologies. The modulation is based on spread-spectrum techniques and on the spectrum frequency variation (chirp), with FEC error correction.
The LoRaWAN™ network is optimised to use sensors with reduced battery consumption and includes different end point classes depending on the need to prioritise network latency rather than battery life. It is an completely bidirectional protocol and has been designed by security experts to ensure reliability and protection.
LoRa network elements
LORAWAN architecture, as shown in the figure below, includes four elements:
- End Devices (field sensors that collect and transmit measurement data);
- Gateways (network devices that collect data from the end points);
- Network Server (LoRaWAN network control and authentication layers);
- Application Server (data collection and processing application layer).
The sensors will collect the data and communicate with gateways for the connection to the network server.
The data collected and processed (Big Data Analysis) by an in-cloud Network Server can be monitored via software platforms or apps on mobile devices, allowing the data gathered by the sensors to be analysed or for reports and analysis to be extracted over the medium-long term, improving the efficiency and management of resources by sending specific alerts or operating distance management of remote plants via smart actuators.
Early Warning System
A user-friendly GIS package for real-time environmental monitoring and flood forecasting. It works in full-automatic way without the need of user's intervention: it connects to real-time data acquisition systems, processes hydro-meteorological data, runs computation model chains for flood forecasting and displays results.
The system receives and displays real-time data from different type of sensors and models such as: tele-metering rain-gauges, hydro-meteorological stations, river gauges, ground-based weather RADAR, high-resolution satellites, numerical weather prediction models, etc. The visualization of data is automatically updated any time new data are received.
Once real-time data have been received and processed, it runs forecasting models and displays results. Flood forecasts can be visualized as maps, time-series and animations. The system shows warning thresholds and highlights alarm situations at rain gauges, river gauges or user defined areas to help users in taking decisions. Visualization options include real-time display of river cross-sections with water level indication and warning thresholds, water level profile on the main river reaches, multi-window visualization features and animations. Favorite windows and display configurations can be saved and recalled to create custom visualizations.
Data can be exported at any time from the visual
interface to Microsoft Excel files.
