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.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
