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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
