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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
