The product can be considered as a new alternative to coal-based activated carbon for surface water treatment, where taste and odor removal, disinfection byproduct (DBP) or DBP precursor removal, and total organic carbon (TOC) removal are required. The product also serves as a premium performance choice for groundwater applications.

AquaCarb CX Series carbons have the high microporous structure of coconut shell-based carbon combined with the faster kinetics of bituminous coal-based carbons, resulting in excellent volatile organic carbon (VOC) removal capacity, while also working well in applications where bituminous coal-based carbons have been the preferred choice.
Siemens’ studies have shown that AquaCarb CX Series carbons exhibit a higher adsorption capacity than coal-based carbon for several applications, with greater throughput before carbon breakthrough. The result is a lower lifecycle cost for the customer, and a lower cost for complying with DBP regulations and managing taste and odor issues.
Siemens Water Technologies is a leader in carbon adsorption technology through the Westates line of activated carbons and equipment. As well, Siemens offers a wide range of technical and field support services including analytical testing, removal and installation and spent carbon reactivation and recycling, all of which help ensure that adsorber systems continue to operate efficiently and downtime is minimized.

Spectrally narrow x-ray pulses may be “sharpened” by purely mechanical means. This sounds surprisingly, but a team of theoretical and experimental physicists developed and realized such a method. It is based on fast motions, precisely synchronized with the pulses, of a target interacting with the x-ray light. Thereby, photons are redistributed within the x-ray pulse to the desired spectral region.
A team of theoretical physicists from the MPI for Nuclear Physics (MPIK) in Heidelberg has developed a novel method to intensify the spectrally broad x-ray...
Physicists working with researcher Oriol Romero-Isart devised a new simple scheme to theoretically generate arbitrarily short and focused electromagnetic fields. This new tool could be used for precise sensing and in microscopy.
Microwaves, heat radiation, light and X-radiation are examples for electromagnetic waves. Many applications require to focus the electromagnetic fields to...
Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
