SINGAPORE, N.Y., June 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GE (NYSE:GE) will showcase its advanced energy-saving and efficient technologies, products and services designed to help industrial and municipal customers meet their toughest water challenges at Singapore International Water Week 2014, taking place June 1-5, 2014, in Singapore.
"We are committed to developing technologies that enable our customers to achieve energy savings that also increase operating efficiencies while helping to conserve and reuse water. During Singapore International Water Week, we will highlight our solutions for the major water-related challenges facing our industrial and municipal customers—availability, quality, productivity, energy and the environment," said Heiner Markhoff, president and CEO—water and process technologies for GE Power & Water.
Highlights of GE's technology portfolio that will be on display at Booth # B2-B24 include:
ZeeWeed* Ultrafiltration—Reinforced hollow-fiber membranes for tough-to-treat water. Drinking water, wastewater, water reuse and industrial applications can all benefit from GE's strongest ZeeWeed membrane to produce water with very high purity and low silt density.
LEAPmbr*—Building on 25 years of membrane bioreactor (MBR) experience to deliver the most advanced MBR solution to date. LEAPmbr dramatically lowers energy costs, increases productivity and offers a flexible design that can fit within a smaller footprint than conventional MBR technology.
LEAPprimary*—An innovative primary treatment technology for use with GE's ZeeWeed MBR and LEAPmbr systems. LEAPprimary significantly reduces overall energy usage, costs and physical space requirements by combining separation, thickening and dewatering of primary wastewater solids into one compact, high-performance unit.
IPER—GE's IPER system is an integrated pump and energy recovery device for a 1,000 m3/day SeaPRO seawater reverse osmosis system. IPER is a highly efficient desalination pump, based on positive displacement technology.
Procera* Seawater Solutions Platform—Showcasing the breadth and depth of GE's desalination solutions, Procera's broad platform includes SeaPAK, SeaPRO, Seawater reverse osmosis spiral wound, ultrafiltration (UF) membranes, depth filters, chemistries, ZeeWeed 1000 and ZeeWeed 1500, Seawater UF, IPER and life cycle services.
Sievers Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyzers—Designed to measure TOC in a broad range of samples from ultrapure to drinking water, the new M9 Analyzer enhances productivity by producing TOC results in two minutes, twice as fast as its predecessor. The InnovOx Analyzer, with its new Class I, Div II certified enclosure, measures TOC in process water.
