Virea Wurm GmbH – Automatic window cleaning on an aquarium

igu-award-adm | July 23, 2020

Automatic aquarium pane cleaning, driven along two parallel linear guides by a toothed belt. An integrated control system that can be adjusted with an app regulates daily movement times and controls the processes and safety functions.



In saltwater aquariums, algae obscure the panes within a few days because of the good lighting. In order for the aquarium to be presentable, the viewing panes must be cleaned manually every few days.

The aquarium owner has more time to enjoy his attractive aquarium. Around €1,000 per aquarium per year can be saved with an automatic pane-cleaning system.
