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: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
