ASW-ATI 9 SECTORS 9 Mineral water


Mineral Water

As for other plants operating on a geographical scale, smart systems are crucial in the mineral water sector. Monitoring, control and automation ensures extreme reliability at all the delicate stages of the process.

The most important factor is to control and guarantee the quality of the water in the storage tanks that feed the production lines, as well as ensuring physical security of the facilities in terms of access control, video surveillance and intrusion detection.

Managers need complete and reliable data, we therefore use advanced technologies and architectures typical of industrial control systems, able to guarantee high performance and the best levels of reliability and availability.

Our application experience on water networks has enabled us to meet the challenges set by this sector.

  • Maximum daily volume picking management.
  • Pressure and flow adjustment.
  • Antibacterial control.
  • Automation of pumps.
  • Leak/break control of pipelines.
  • Automation of plant sanitization process.
  • Integration of local subsystems.

Focus on RTP

Applied to mineral water production process

Based on a PLC hardware platform, the RTP apparatus of ASW-ATI combines the classic monitoring, control and communication functions of an RTU, with the regulation and control performance typical of industrial automation.
The RTP equipment is installed in the water springs, wells and collectors and allows you to adjust the flow rates, pressures and manage the sanitization and water quality control processes.
  • Continuity of production

  • Storage tanks with safe and controlled water

  • Complete and reliable process measurements (flow rate, levels, ph, temperature, redox)

  • Security of access to sites

  • Video surveillance

A question of sustainability

Water is a valuable but limited natural resource.

Currently, just 1% of the world’s freshwater reserves

are accessible for direct human use.

It is estimated that in 2030 47% of the world’s population will live with problems of water scarcity.

Water management is a matter of the highest priority that can no longer be postponed.

Market dynamics andpositioning of water Made in Italy

«Although the turnover cannot be compared to that of wine (3 billion euros against 11), the Italian mineral water sector undoubtedly represents one of the excellences of Italian food & beverage»

Emanuele di Faustino

According to the Mineral Water Monitor, in fact, between 2010 and 2019 the export of Italian mineral waters has practically doubled in value (+101%).

Italy plays an important role in the mineral water market, so much so that it ranks second among the exporting countries with 539 million euros of export in 2020

This is a significant amount, especially when compared to other top food products Made in Italy. Mineral waters, in fact, performed better than cheeses (whose export recorded an increase of 93%), wines (+64%) and pasta (+49%). Only the export of coffee recorded better performance with a growth of 119%.

Among the top world exporters there are also France, which is in first place with 651 million, Fiji, for which – in the absence of data available to 2020 – 121 million of 2019 have been reported, and Georgia with 101 million euros. The mineral waters of Fiji, in fact, are highly appreciated by the United States, while those of Georgia have a good market in Russia. Belgium is also one of the top exporters, but it mainly plays a role as a trader in international trade, since it exports only French waters.

Remaining on the comparison between Italy and France it is interesting to underline a difference between the market of wine and that of mineral water. If the French have almost double their position on wine in terms of export price (6.2 euros per litre against 3.6 euros for Italian still wines), in the case of mineral water it is Italy that has a higher average export price, 0.36 euros per litre compared to 0.6 euros per litre,26 euros of France.
