The Siemens Industry Automation Division has launched a new reverse osmosis (RO) system into the European market designed for industrial applications in fields such as the food and beverage, power, microelectronics and solar industries.

The system requires a footprint of just 82.5 x 429.5 cm and has a height of 237.8 cm, which allows it to fit through standard doorways of industrial buildings. It can be used for the production of process and boiler feed water as well as for wastewater and process water recycling.

Siemens said the "low cost of ownership" is down to low energy consumption by utilizing variable frequency drive (VFD) controlled feed pumps, resulting in potential energy savings ranging from 15% up to 60% compared to conventional in-line starter controlled pumps.
