The Process

Explore Our Process

Design is our first step of the process


#1 Start with Design

Our design starts with a review of the data either provided by the client or ascertained via an understanding and an appreciation of the client’s manufacturing process.

Should the effluent present unusual characteristic, lab trials and pilot tests can be carried out.

Once defined, the process is developed into a Piping & Instrumentation drawing, under AutoCad plant 3D which enables the production of a detailed Bill of Material.

3D modelling of the plant is then produced, typically under Navisworks, so the operability and maintainability of the plant can be assessed and reviewed with the client.

A Functional Design Specifications is prepared to define the detailed automation operations and interlock of the proposed plant.

At this point a detailed review is carried out with the client typically through a Hazop Study which then enables a Design Freeze.

Detailed manufacturing drawings for the various equipment, tanks, platform are then produced, stress calculations carried out where necessary and pipework network are modelled up when facing multiple pumping stations into single or multiple streams.

#3 Commission

Commissioning is the final stage of any project delivery and the last step before the plant is handed-over to the Client.

It is therefore the most crucial time where the consequences of all the previous steps are tested, validated, adjusted and tuned. Above and beyond a succession of equipment and technologies, we are providing a guarantee of performance.

We achieve this by bringing together:

  • Electrical engineering
  • Automation engineering
  • Process engineering
  • Chemical engineering
  • Chemistry

All those skills are in-house and no sub-contractor are used at this stage.

Considering the broad spectrum of expertise, we are enrolling young engineers through apprenticeship scheme to ensure proficient engineer who can ensure our promise is being delivered!

Commissioning is also the opportunity for ensuring that all Hazop study actions are being closed out.

A commissioning report is being produced consigning all the settings and test carried out.


"Puretech Environmental came up with an original yet simple and efficient integrated design. The quality of our product has been enhanced. We are so pleased with it that we have awarded them the contract to install similar system for our Midlands' plant"

#4 Remote Support

Puretech Env. has developed a unique, safe and powerful yet cost effective solution to offer remote support and monitoring.

First of all our solution relies on a hard-wired point to point secure connection back to our own monitoring servers.
Secondly we are not physically linked to our client networks.
Thirdly the data are still primarily stored at our clients premises leaving them the total ownership of the solution.

Whilst the above might be of interest to you what does it actually do for you?

  • The alarms can be sent by SMS or email, with an on-call management system where many operators can select the hours and type of alarms they wish to receive
  • It enables to remotely access your SCADA system (with or without additional security level) from your PC, smartphone, tablets
  • It can produces plant performance reports (daily, weekly monthly), reagents consumption ratios, discharge quality etc.
  • It can produce alarms reports
  • It can backup all your data
  • It enables our support team to access live PLC logic

Please contact us if you require further information and see how we can integrate your system onto our monitoring platform.

#5 Servicing and on-site Support

Understanding the vital importance of keeping the effluent treatment operational as it enables the manufacturing operations to carry on, our engineers can assist you on site whether nationwide or internationally with SLA as low as 24h.

We pride ourselves in offering a responsive efficient technical support. Visit our support portal and contact us to judge by yourself.

We can support all aspects of your plant operations :

  • Process issues
  • Instrumentation troubleshooting
  • Pump repair
  • Pipe repair and integrity check (Pressure test to DVS2210, Ultrasound thickness check)
  • Spare parts
  • Chemicals (Coagulants, Polyelectrolyte, Defoamer, etc.)

Within the frame of maintenance contract we keep parts on the shelf ready to be dispatched within 24h or even same day week-end and bank holidays included.


"We are delighted by the quality of your services and appreciate your responsiveness and professionalism in supporting our needs and business. You are very reliable and quick to respond to any issues, your effective communication with technical support is second to none, your customer-based approach and professional approach both from you management/office team and engineers to deliver the service to keep our client satisfied is amazing delivery, thanks to this we have managed our client needs and not affect their business daily requirements."
