Flowplan Benefits

Thousands of water filters are discarded each month

Too many water filters are changed too early

Water filters are replaced based on loose estimates and guesses. Replacing water filters too late causes scale buildup, that leads to malfunctioning and expensive machine repairs. As a result, it is often preferred to change water filters too early.

However, premature water filter replacements have serious consequences in terms of both the climate and finances.

The Flowplan solution ensures that no filter is changed too early or too late. The machine’s water consumption is measured and processed while being accessible using a tablet, computer or mobile. This gives the user an overview of the exact lifespan for each water filter. The user can thereby schedule filter management, while considering work schedules, customer flow etc.

Flowplan is compatible with all types of water filters.

Tired of machine breakdowns and expensive repairs?

Installation without concern

Simply connect our Beam and flowmeter to the existing water filter and an automatic connection is established without the use of 230V or WiFi

Complete Backoffice system

Backoffice provides you insights of all consumption, automatically calculates capacities, service intervals and much more.
The simple setup gives you a quick overview of the locations that needs service soon, allowing you to plan your tasks optimally.

Flowplan, a green solution

By Flowplan Benefits No Comments

Climate and sustainability have become key factors nowadays, where water saving and waste reduction are in focus.

In 2020, Flowplan received the Solar Impulse Label. This made Flowplan one of the thousand selected solutions that help protect the environment in a profitable way.

Each month, thousands of water filters are replaced in coffee machines, steam ovens, washing machines, etc. However today, water filter replacements are based on guesses. This results in waste of resources due to too early filter replacement or calcium accumulation and machine breakdown due to too late filter replacement. The latter results in expensive machine repairs or at worst whole machine replacements. 

The Flowplan solution measures water consumption and calculates the optimal time for filter replacement while taking the hardness of water into a count. Optimized filter replacement results in significant cost savings regarding machine maintenance and filter use. Flowplan ensures optimal filter utilization while preventing calcium accumulations.

The Flowplan solution reduces ressources and water consumption by optimizing water filter replacements on industrial machines.

Making all coffee machines smart with Flowplan

By Flowplan Benefits
Digitalization made easy

We only need water

For our solution to work, we just need a water flow that we can measure. The collected water data is converted into consumption data via artificial intelligence, and displayed in our Software system, so that the data is made usable and manageable for the service company. Flowplan works on all industrial machines with water flow.

Installation without concern

A few steps and the solution is installed

You only need to plug the flowmeter into Beam and it will automatically start connecting to the Beam's own IoT network.

Installations guide
Complete IoT solution

Wireless transmission of data

All collected data is sent via Beam's own IoT network, after which it is received and processed in our Backoffice system, which calculates when the next filter change or service need is, and the system gives an automatic message.

Your very own Flowplan Backoffice System

By Flowplan Benefits
All the data you can imagine

We have made a complete software system, and you get your very own!

Your very own system

You get your own backoffice system with all your devices. We group the devices based on your customers and you can even grant them access to data about their machines

Easy overview

The Dashboard gives you a quick overview on the status of all your devices. Here you see filters that need your attention soon, your upcoming filters, and if anything seems wrong. We even place all your devices on a map

We calculate the filter capacity

Whenever you install a new filter, just pick the type of filter you have installed and where it's located, then we calculate the capacity based on the water hardness and the official data about the filter from the filter manufacturer.

No more guessing

Estimating or even guessing filter changes are a thing from the past. Based on data from the specific filter, we forecast when it's time to change it. This means that we can give you a pretty good estimate for next change a week after you installed it. And the closer you get, the more precise our estimates are

Why not change more filters in the area?

Way too often you drive to one customer one day and three days later you visit their neighbor - or even the same customer, since there is no way of predicting when the filters need change. Not any more! We group the filter changes in order to reduce driving. This way you save miles, money and reduce pollution.

All the data you can imagine

Every time a cup of coffee is produced, we transmit the data. Based on several parameters, we use machine learning to recognize the drinks and based on this we give you insights on consumption patterns and even tell you which beverages are being made. We even recognize if everything is running smoothly or something may be starting to drift
