Home > Press > Siemens wastewater, ultrapure systems going to Georgia Tech

Abstract:
The Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) has selected Siemens Water Technologies to provide multi-million dollar wastewater and ultrapure water treatment systems for a new, 55 million euros ($80 million) nanotechnology research centre, located in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The wastewater treatment system will treat acid/or alkaline waste streams, and the ultrapure water treatment system is designed to meet very tight water quality specifications required by the Centre's research programs. Construction on the new centre is slated to be complete in October, 2008.

Siemens wastewater, ultrapure systems going to Georgia Tech

WARRENDALE, PA | Posted on February 25th, 2008

The new nanotechnology centre will be the most advanced nanotechnology facility in the Southeast, the first of its kind in the region, and will be one of the most sophisticated in the country. Located on the Georgia Tech campus, the 160,000-square-foot facility will feature 30,000 square feet of clean rooms critical to research and instruction in microelectronics, semi-conductors, materials, medicine and pharmaceuticals.

The new wastewater treatment system from Siemens consists of multimedia filtration, activated carbon treatment, softening and chemical feed to treat acid and/or alkaline waste streams, depending upon projects running through the centre. The ultrapure water treatment system will include reverse osmosis (RO) membrane filtration and deionization, UV sanitation, chemical feed, and instruments and pumps. The skid-mounted design of the ultrapure water system will greatly reduce installation time, allowing the centre to meet tight water quality specifications and handle the most challenging projects.

Mechanical contractor on both the wastewater and ultrapure water systems is Mann Mechanical, Avondale Estates, GA. Georgia Tech and MW Zander/Whiting-Turner, are the Project engineers.
