Clearwater Controls is known worldwide for the DERAGGER ™+ line of intelligent deragging control systems. The company is bringing the Internet of Things (IoT) to industry sectors with its newest innovation: cloud-based data analytics and management for improved monitoring of water networks.
Clearwater Controls’ solutions allow engineers and operators to analyze and create baseline data on the performance of their pump networks in real time to optimize operations, identify problems, perform money-saving predictive maintenance, and avoid potentially harmful and costly environmental impacts. These smart interventions will transform the industry from its historic reactive approach to a predictive asset management model.
Incorporating Clearwater Controls’ DERAGGER PRO pump station controller across its brands will bring intelligent efficiency to nearly all product lines of Industrial Flow Solutions, particularly the innovative OverWatch™ Direct In-Line Pumping System platform. Clearwater Controls’ complementary products and technology will provide greater value to customers seeking to reduce startup time, strengthen reliability and provide real-time cloud-based data.
“As technology and smart data bring new changes to the water industry, this acquisition will establish Industrial Flow Solutions and Clearwater Controls as leaders in the new digital revolution,” said John Wilson, President of Industrial Flow Solutions. “This new partnership supports our combined missions to transform any industry that relies on high usage of water and the need for treatment,“ he added.
Wilson expects a dramatic increase in Clearwater Controls’ business as it develops a greater product range for the DERAGGER+ and expands its global customer base.
“This acquisition is of mutual benefit to both companies, making each uniquely more competitive. We have common values of being customer focused, highly responsive, innovative, collaborative, supportive, and ambitious,” Wilson said. “We will provide Clearwater Controls with resources and expertise to strengthen its business overall. Reciprocally, Clearwater Controls’ unique and agnostic control solutions open a huge opportunity for Industrial Flow Solutions to access a worldwide market,” Wilson added.
“Clearwater Controls is taking the lead in seizing the groundswell of interest and momentum around intelligent monitoring and management of wastewater networks,” said Simon Crompton, Managing Director, Clearwater Controls. “Our partnership with Industrial Flow Solutions provides us with a greater footprint to advance pumping technology worldwide,” said Crompton.
