- PRESS RELEASE
Xylem Inc. will unveil WEDECO Duron, a new, open channel, energy efficient ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system during the International Water Summit (booth number 3250) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE), this week (15-17 January 2013). The company will launch the solution as part of a showcase of its broad range of water and wastewater treatment solutions at the event.
Xylem has designed the WEDECO Duron solution as the ideal fit for all medium to large size wastewater treatment plants that are looking for an environmentally friendly disinfection option that is easy to install, operate and maintain.
Designed for mid-size to large, open channel systems, Xylem's WEDECO Duron eliminates the need for chemical based disinfection while simultaneously reducing electricity costs and the amount of space required to house the product.
WEDECO ECORAY UV lamps with a power of 600 W are arranged in a 45° vertical inclined geometry.
"This innovative approach gives several benefits to our customers," explained Kirsten Meyer, UV Product Manager with Xylem. "Firstly, the design optimizes the hydraulics and performance efficiency. Secondly, thanks to enhanced ballast technology, fewer lamps are needed, which leads to a compact product size. Thirdly a proven intelligent dose control minimizes the energy consumption throughout all operating conditions," she added.
Disinfection with ultraviolet (UV) light is a reliable, well-established technology to inactivate pathogens including bacteria, viruses and parasites. A validation approach that exceeds conventional wastewater standards even allows to design and control the system specifically to the pathogen of concern.
Xylem's new water filtration technology that replaces support gravel in the wastewater market and porous plates in the drinking water sector will be launched to customers in the Middle East at the International Water Summit.
Xylem's new Leopold I.M.S 1000 media retainer allows wastewater treatment plants to consistently deliver higher quality effluent than is possible with support gravel due to increased media depth and available driving head. The new Leopold I.M.S 200 media retainer delivers the same benefits to water treatment facilities.
Xylem will also showcase its Sanitaire ICEAS solution at the International Water Summit. As a Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR), Xylem's Sanitaire ICEAS enables all of the wastewater treatment to be done in a single tank, making it quicker, easier and less expensive to build multiple tanks.
The continuous flow of effluent results in a very stable operation with exceptional performance. Variations in flows and loads are split evenly between all tanks ensuring optimal performance at all times and providing the right conditions for nutrient removal.
Over 900 existing installations attest to the fact that Xylem's Sanitare ICEAS is a robust and proven single source solution that delivers cost savings and ease-of-operation to customers.
Xylem's Leopold Clari-DAF system is a high-rate dissolved air flotation clarification solution that is particularly effective for desalination pre-treatment of seawater. Source water contaminants such as membrane-fouling algae (also known as red tide) and free or emulsified oil that are naturally buoyant are best removed by flotation.
Xylem's Leopold Clari-DAF (Clarification-Dissolved Air Flotation) systems create millions of micro-illiobubbles that float solid particles to the surface of the water where these solids can be removed as floating sludge, usually by mechanical skimming.
For more than twenty years Xylem's Leopold CT2 submerged sludge collector systems have delivered reliable operation, low maintenance costs and good sludge production in hundreds of facilities worldwide.
This submerged sludge collection system simplifies the water treatment process, increases plant efficiency and reduces both maintenance time and total system operational costs. Xylem's Leopold CT2 submerged sludge collector system will be showcased at the Xylem booth (# 3250) during the International Water Summit.
