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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
