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. Too late replacement of water filters causes scale buildup, that additionally causes malfunctioning and expensive machine repairs. As a result, water filters are rather changed too early.

However, too early water filter replacements have serious consequences for both climate and the budget.

The Flowplan solution ensure that no filter is changed too early or too late. The machine’ water consumption is measured, processed and accessable using 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.

Tried of machine breakdowns and expensive repairs?

Malfunctioning and breakdowns are often caused by scale buildup

Calcium accumulates inside coffee machines, washing machines and various other industrial machines, just like in shower heads and electric kettles etc. Unfortunately, calcium accumulations often lead to malfunctioning, and thereby, expensive machine repairs or at worst whole machine replacements.

Water filters prevents calcium accumulations, but only if they are changed in time.

With Flowplan you can ensure 

  • That all filters are replaced in time
  • Overview of all your water filters exact capacity
  • Dates for filter replacement
  • Information about the machine use
  • All data are available using mobile, tablet and computer

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. Calculate savings

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

Make it smart

It's pretty simple. Flowplan is the cheap and easy way to make every coffee machine smart.

We just need water

Basically, the only requirement is a flow of water, then we are able to measure it!

3/8″ water connection

The most commonly used water connection. Female in, male out, this way you don't need any extra fittings to install the flowmeter.

We handle them all

It doesn't matter what kind of machine you install it onto. Manual, semiautomatic, fully automatic or brewing station - they all work!

One system for all

Finally, there is one system that works for all machines. This way you can always have a quick overview of all your machines.

Saving time, resources and money with Flowplan

We love sustainability in Flowplan

Flowplan brings you a lot of benefits. Whether your main priority is the environment or improving business, we meet both

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
