Updated filtration products from Siemens increase flexibility and cost effectiveness of water treatment

21.06.2010
Siemens will highlight updates to existing filtration products at the AWWA ACE Conference in Chicago. In the future, customers will be able to choose from an extended range of systems for treating water even more cost effectively.

The reconfigured Memcor CP ultrafiltration product line provides up to 50% more membrane area in the same footprint than previous pressurized module designs. Siemens has also expanded the Memcor XP product line, doubling the flow range to up to 500,000 gallons per day (GPD). Finally, the Trident HSC system has been expanded to include two new sizes between 7.5 and 15 million gallons per day (MGD).


“We are continually upgrading our products to offer customers an even wider range of system choices to cost effectively meet their water treatment needs,” said Stratton Tragellis, Global Director for the “Purified Water Municipal” Segment at Siemens Water Technologies. “The improvements to the Memcor CP and XP ultrafiltration systems will deliver the same high quality effluent while offering a higher flow rate in a smaller system – a win win for the customer.”

The Memcor CP system is a compact pressurized, pre-engineered system with a modular building-block design that reduces installation costs and simplifies operation. The hollow-fiber membranes provide a verifiable barrier, ensuring removal of turbidity, suspended solids, viruses and pathogens. The Memcor CP system is ideally suited for small communities. Now, using Memcor L20V PVdf membranes, the CP system allows for better use of available space, reducing equipment cost by up to 20% compared to earlier CP designs. Three CP models are available that provide 120, 240 and 960 MGD.

The Memcor XP pressurized membrane system is a compact, self-contained filtration system that is shipped fully assembled and factory tested, minimizing integration, installation and startup costs. The updated product line uses L20V membranes, allowing up to 500,000 GPD from one skidded system.

The Trident HSC system is a multi-barrier clarifier with proven coagulation-flocculation technology at high rates to minimize the required footprint. Ideally suited for surface and groundwater treatment, the Trident HSC system uses series-operated stages that reduce incoming contaminants to produce high quality effluent while providing back-up protection for the overall process. In the updated version, the controls have been simplified for distributed flow splitting to the clarifier section. The entire Trident HSC system process train consists of corrosion resistant components of either stainless steel or aluminum.

Memcor and Trident are trademarks of Siemens and/or its affiliates in some countries.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
