Sulzer Technical Review Issue 1 / 2019

Because life is fluid

March 22, 2019 | Special edition: Water

Did you know that the first Sulzer water pump was produced in 1834? Instead of simply delivering a fire pistol as ordered by the customer, the newly founded company Sulzer Brothers developed a fire extinguisher combined with a hose and pump. Thinking ahead and setting industry standards has been Sulzer’s motto for 185 years. Sulzer products support water processing, treatment, transport and flood control. Because we are committed to preserving natural resources, we supply sustainable solutions to the market. We want to make all water-related processes as efficient and cost-effective as possible.

"Everyone should have access to clean, safe drinking water and adequate water for sanitation. We can make our world a better place to live in if we keep nurturing the life cycle of water with technological progress. Meeting global water needs requires our action on two fronts: developing industrial processes to improve water quality and transport and furthering research on the combination of industrial processes and nature-based solutions. World Water Day provides the chance to make a difference for the members of the global population who suffer from water-related issues. It’s a day to prepare for the future challenges of water management. And most of all, it’s an opportunity to take action, encourage engagement and share knowledge on the importance of freshwater resources."
