Siemens strengthens water services offering in European market

13.09.2010
Siemens Water Technologies is expanding its water treatment services and product offering in Europe.

The company will increase its aftermarket services and parts primarily for the oil and gas, hydrocarbon processing, chemical processing, power, food and beverage, and life science industries, and will establish two new distribution centers. Siemens is also launching its membrane cleaning program to all of Europe. Disinfection services continue to be an important offering for municipal drinking water and wastewater treatment plants as well as for aquatic applications.

With service branches currently located in Belgium, France, Germany, and the UK, Siemens Water Technologies addresses industrial and municipal customers’ concerns. The company will establish distribution centers in the UK and Belgium in 2011 for such aftermarket parts as membranes, resin, cartridge filters, and UV lamps for the industrial markets. Having two distribution centers will ensure that an adequate stock of supplies can be quickly shipped to European customers.

In addition, Siemens will launch its membrane cleaning program to the greater European market. Customers can have their reverse osmosis (RO) membranes cleaned by trained field service technicians. Membrane cleaning will extend the useful life of RO membrane modules and can even restore RO membranes to or near the original manufacturer's performance specifications. Although cleaning can be done on-site using the customer's clean-in-place (CIP) skid and standard cleaning procedures, off-site cleaning at specially equipped facilities is recommended for the best results.

Siemens Water Technologies provides service and maintenance contracts for Wallace & Tiernan disinfection systems in municipal drinking water and wastewater treatment plants and for aquatic applications like leisure centers and public swimming pools. This service includes the often legally regulated annual system checks for disinfection systems plus preventive and corrective maintenance over the total life cycle. Full-service contracts cover all maintenance costs, including wear parts. Siemens’ service team tracks the specific maintenance schedule to provide as-needed maintenance, in a timely fashion.

“Our service offering helps municipal and industrial customers keep plants online to avoid unscheduled downtime due to either equipment failure or environmental noncompliance,” said Olaf Jansen, Head of the European business for Siemens Water Technologies. “If a plant does go offline, we help restore operations to a normal state with our on-call services. And finally, while in a plant, our technicians look for ways the client can reduce its cost, increase its production reliability, or increase its production quantity.”

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...
