Veolia Water Technologies has launched its new Orion that provides compendial purified water with sustainability features such as low energy membranes Reverse Osmosis (RO), integral recovery RO, and concentrate recycle.
All products and materials have been selected for optimum recyclability.
As microbial control is paramount in any purified water treatment system, the Orion retains the hot water sanitization (HWS) of the main treatment system and the pre-treatment softeners.
The range has three models with flow rates from 0.5 to 20m³/hr:
- S-Series – The premier Orion reduces overall water and energy consumption whilst delivering long-term operational efficiencies.
- E-Series – This mid-range Orion provides standard features of reduced water to waste during the recycle process and conserves both water and energy use for environmental best practices.
- C-Series – The Classic Orion offers the core Orion technology within the most economical investment package whilst continuing to produce industry standard purified water.
These models come with 15” widescreen thin-film-transistor human-machine interface or TFT HMI with the options of Siemens and Allen Bradley programmable logic controller units.
This updated HMI technology displays key sustainable parameters such as carbon dioxide water and energy savings.
The latest Integrated Smart Module (ISM) sensors have also been used for monitoring and control aspects, and the skid design has been reviewed with a cleaner look and feel.
In addition, operational colored status lights have been added to each corner of the skid for improved health and safety, and easy operator monitoring.
As with all Veolia pharmaceutical systems, the unit comes complete with a validation pack covering all requirements for the system to meet with Good Automated Manufacturing Practice and International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering guidelines, as well as inspection bodies Food and Drug Administration and MCD.
To further improve plant operations, the Orion can be linked to the new Veolia technology, Vision.
