Siemens to Showcase Solutions to Wastewater Treatment Challenges at WEFTEC.11

With time, wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) parts wear out, regulatory requirements tighten, and operational costs rise. Water professionals seeking solutions to these and other issues will converge at WEFTEC.11, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California, USA from October 15 through 19. Solutions to some of the industry’s toughest wastewater treatment challenges will be displayed at the Siemens booth. In addition to helping get new plants up and running, Siemens’ wastewater systems and solutions also enable aging plants to extend product lifecycle, maximize efficiency, reduce costs, and meet ongoing regulations.

At this year’s WEFTEC, Siemens will focus on eight main topics: clarification; biological processes; filtration; anaerobic digestion; biosolids management; disinfection; integrated automation and controls; and upgrades, rehab, retrofit and cost-saving services. A variety of products and services aim to reduce long-term lifecycle costs, energy consumption and biosolids disposal costs through process technology and controls in WWTPs. Through its BioFlowsheet+ Solutions biological process optimization program, the company can integrate low energy biological processes, turbocompressors, variable frequency drive technology and controls to save energy. Siemens can also provide innovative biosolids reduction, composting, and incineration technologies to minimize biosolids production and methane gas output. Experts will also be on-hand to discuss performance contracting, which is an ideal option for projects that reduce energy use or lower biosolids disposal costs. Finally, its Link2Site Flex and Totally Integrated Water control systems allow Siemens to integrate all processes under a unified, easy-to-operate control system that can help plants save on long-term lifecycle costs and make the whole process more efficient.

Also in the booth, Siemens will showcase a number of retrofit, aftermarket, and field services that help communities replace, upgrade, and start up facilities with reliable and updated original quality equipment enhanced to meet today’s performance, space, and operating excellence needs. For instance, Siemens’ retrofit and rehabilitation turnkey services involve conducting a comprehensive review of the client’s water treatment equipment and controls, as well as current operating procedures and data; Siemens then provides a detailed report with recommendations for improving the treatment system. The company also offers preventative maintenance and service contracts for membrane systems, which extend equipment life, make operations more efficient, and reduce direct labor costs. To alleviate capacity issues, Siemens can provide mobile operating service equipment to maintain required output rates during installation operations. And through its extensive service branch network, Siemens provides aftermarket services to replace and upgrade WWTPs, without interrupting water supply and operations.

Siemens also helps engineers and communities find the best solutions to meet regulatory, capacity, and reuse challenges. The company’s space-efficient equipment requires minimal operator attention and allows plants to improve treatment or expand capacity within existing plant boundaries. Siemens’ Full-Service Odor Control Program approach can help wastewater collection and treatment facilities achieve adequate odor control and reduce corrosion in their infrastructure for the lowest lifecycle cost, while meeting tough odor control requirements. The company’s new SCU Trace Metal Removal Media is capable of removing trace levels of metals such as copper, zinc, lead, mercury, cadmium, trivalent chromium, nickel and other transition metals from complex wastewaters and groundwater, to ppb/ppt levels that cannot be achieved with standard ion-exchange resins.
