Siemens launching ultra-economical reverse osmosis system into European market

17.04.2012
The Siemens Industry Automation Division is launching a new reverse osmosis (RO) system into the European market.

The new Vantage M83 RO system's main benefit is low cost of ownership. The use of energy-efficient components, combined with flexible modes of operation, contribute to minimizing operating costs. The Vantage M83 RO system is designed for a wide range of industrial applications in such fields as the food and beverage, power, microelectronics and solar industries.


The Vantage M83 RO system from the Siemens Industry Automation Division is a compact RO system suitable for use in a wide range of applications. The system requires a footprint of just 82.5 x 429.5 cm and has a height of 237.8 cm, which allows it to fit through standard doorways of industrial buildings. It can be used for the production of process and boiler feed water as well as for wastewater and process water recycling. A distinguishing benefit of the system is its low total cost of ownership. Key factors influencing economical operation include low energy consumption by utilizing variable frequency drive (VFD) controlled feed pumps, resulting in potential energy savings ranging from 15 up to 60 percent compared to conventional in-line starter controlled pumps. Further benefits include enhanced water recovery and a streamlined chemical cleaning process. Unnecessary water consumption can be avoided by modifying system settings during startup, standby, and shutdown conditions that reduce waste without jeopardizing product water quality. Other benefits include simple system commissioning and user-friendly touchscreen controls with operational trending displays for monitoring system performance.

In Europe, the Vantage M83 RO units are available in three equipment models: Economy, Deluxe and Select. Each unit is a single-pass RO system mounted on an industrial coated structural steel frame or a stainless steel frame for the Select package. The RO unit includes a cartridge filter, high pressure feed pump, fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) side-entry pressure vessels and spiral-wound thin film composite RO membranes.

All system models are controlled by a programmable logic controller (PLC) with a color touchscreen Human-Machine Interface. The Deluxe and Select models include a VFD-controlled feed pump to save energy with flexible flow demand and an integrated CIP system to facilitate ease of cleaning without additional equipment. The Vantage M83 RO system's components are designed in such a way to provide easy access for servicing, maintenance, and monitoring system performance. Vantage medium pressure (MPR) membranes are provided as standard for ease of maintenance. Optional Vantage low pressure (LPR) membranes are offered to provide energy savings for cold water applications.

The systems are pre-engineered and pre-assembled to help minimize installation and startup costs. They are fully tested at the factory, require simple utility connections and, with minor setup and adjustment, are ready for immediate on-line service.

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
