About us

INVENT Umwelt- und Verfahrenstechnik AG develops, produces and globally implements innovative technical components, systems and processes for water and wastewater treatment.

INVENT was founded in the mid-1980s by a team of fluid mechanics experts, as a spin-off from the department of Fluid Mechanics at the Friedrich-Alexander University in Erlangen-Nuremberg. INVENT’s involvement in the environmental field began in 1990 with the launch of its hyperboloid mixer technology for applications in water and wastewater treatment. INVENT Umwelt- und Verfahrenstechnik AG in its current organisation originated in 1995 as a result of a management buy-out. In 2003, it became a stock-holding company (AG). Since 2004, INVENT has been present in the USA with a subsidiary in New Jersey.

Furthermore the INVENT group is represented with own subsidiaries in Australia, UAE and Italy as well as by commercial representatives, licensed partners, and authorized dealers in all of the world’s most important markets.

Products and services

INVENT became known in the early 1990s with the development and launch of its energy-saving hyperboloid mixer technology for wastewater treatment. The INVENT ´HYPERCLASSIC Mixing Systerm has in the meantime been globally successful, and in many markets is already regarded as the standard for vertical mixers. Today INVENT offers a wide range of mixers for all applications in water and wastewater treatment. In the area of Aeration Technology, INVENT offers a series of membrane aeration systems for the biological treatment of wastewater. They differ in their areas of application, their designs, and the different materials used in their construction. An INVENT system solution comprises carefully selected and designed technical components, which combine to form a secure and efficient installation. When implementing an INVENT system solution, INVENT takes care of the process design, the basic engineering, the project management, delivery, installation and commissioning of the plant and trains the operating personnel.



The INVENT HYPERCLASSIC-Mixer is a vertical mixer with a hyperboloid-shaped mixer -body, installed close to the bottom, and a drive mounted in dry position above the water level. Contrary to other products, it was developed and designed especially for applications in the area of water and wastewater treatment. With the current version HYPERCLASSIC evolution 7, the seventh, completely revised and revolutionary improved version of the classic hyperboloid mixer is now available.

HYPERCLASSIC Mixing- and Aeration System

HYPERCLASSIC Mixing- and Aeration System

The INVENT HYPERCLASSIC-Mixing and Aeration System is a fluid mechanically optimized mechanical aeration system with a hyperboloid-shaped mixer-body which is installed close to the bottom and a drive mounted on top of the tank in dry position. In contrast to other products it was developed not only for the purpose of oxygen transfer, but also for the task of mixing and is tailor-made especially for carrying out this double task.

iDISC Membrane Aeration System

iDISC Membrane Aeration System

30 years of experience in the aeration field lead INVENT to develop the iDISC®- Membrane Diffuser. The innovative concept of the iDISC®- Membrane Diffuser is the combination of sophisticated design and the robust construction resulting in its capability to operate over a wide air flow range whilst achieving high SOTE. This will assist most wastewater treatment plants around the world to reduce their energy consumption and thus to reduce their operating cost.
