Siemens presents water and wastewater solutions for municipalities and industry at IFAT Entsorga 2012

Reliable, energy-efficient solutions that can help boost water and wastewater treatment productivity will be Siemens' focus at this year's IFAT Entsorga.

At booth 325/526 in Hall A1 of the Messe Muenchen Trade Fairgrounds in Munich, Germany, Siemens will be demonstrating solutions that enable municipalities and industrial companies to reduce water and wastewater related operating costs while enhancing plant performance.

Visitors will also be offered insight into the technology company's extensive technology portfolio. On display will be filtration and disinfection devices as well as systems for the automation and control of municipal and industrial treatment plants. Rounding off the trade fair presentation will be solutions for water transportation and distribution as well as measurement instrumentation.

At its booth in Hall A1 at this year's IFAT Entsorga, Siemens will be demonstrating ways in which manufacturers and municipalities can drive down their water and wastewater treatment operating costs by using energy-efficient solutions. The technology company's booth will feature products taken from various fields of application: membrane filtration, high purity water treatment, disinfection, wastewater clarification, biosolids treatment, integrated system planning and controls as well as the measurement, control and regulation of water flows. With the solutions displayed at the fair, Siemens will be demonstrating how it combines its comprehensive expertise around the treatment of water and wastewater with its automation and control technology know-how to create energy-efficient components and intelligent control systems to drive down costs and enhance productivity.

The product innovations to be featured by Siemens at the show will include such highlights as the Vantage M83 reverse osmosis system. This system, offered in three different equipment models in Europe, was developed for an array of industrial applications in fields as diverse as the food and beverage, chemical and pharmaceutical, microelectronics and solar industries to produce water of a specific quality. In addition to its compact design, the Vantage M83 system is very economical. The equipment models that feature variable frequency drive (VFD) controlled feed pumps, for instance, resulting in potential energy savings ranging from 15 up to 60 percent compared to conventional in-line starter controlled pumps. Unnecessary water consumption is also prevented during the plant start-up phase by continuously returning the water to be purified back into the purification circuit until it reaches the required standard of quality instead of discharging it. Other benefits include simple system commissioning and user-friendly touchscreen controls complete with a clearly understandable trend display. Clean in Place (CIP) technology is also offered for the Vantage M83 system, which minimizes the work involved in cleaning the plant.

Siemens will also be presenting the new electrolytic chlorination plant Osec B-Pak system for the manufacture of sodium hypochlorite at IFAT Entsorga. The Osec B-Pak system is available in a choice of four configurations capable of producing sodium hypochlorite solution at an hourly output rate of 1.25, 2.50, 3.75, or 5.00 kilograms of chlorine for disinfecting drinking, process and pool water. The sturdy electrolysis cell and automated plant controller ensures a high level of operating reliability. The new Siemens electrolytic chlorination systems for disinfection come ready-mounted on a skid with a small footprint for maximum space savings. Designed for maximum ease of servicing, the systems permit fast maintenance to reduce downtime and minimize operating costs.

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
