cost analysis feature added to popula RO system design software
Version 6.1 of RoPro 6 For Windows software has been released by Fluid Sys- tems The new, 3-diskette upgrade features expanded capabilities, new products, and important updates for reverse osmosis (RO) sys- tem design.
The most significant new feature is a compre- hensive cost analysis func- tion - CostPro. CostPro helps users optimize sys- tem design from a cost viewpoint, plus make cost comparisons between two
separate designs. RoPro v. 6.1 includes all
of Fluid Systems newest membrane elements like the TFC-ULP, Magnum, and TFC Premium ele- ments, plus the Spiral Com- posite small element product line. It also updates previous RoPro prediction equations with important new information.
RoPro 6 For Windows was originally released in 1995 and features full-col- our graphics and online help to quickly and easilv
walk users through RO sys- tem design. It offers design calculations for both single- and two-pass systems, con- centrate recycle and permeate back pressure. Users are able to define constituents in the feed ana- lysis, and produce pro-
jected system performance graphs and on-screen and printable flow diagrams.

With up to 5X the working surface area
of traditional candle filters, our ceramic
TaperfloTM Compact CandleTM filters
are the perfect cost-effective alternative
for retrofitting existing filtration equipment.
They can also be custom designed to fit
any new application. And, they perform
equally well (and impressively) in both high
temperature and corrosive environments.
Call us to see how we can improve you:
filtration performance and reliabilitv.

A new computer-based training programme for ALCAP oil treatment systems has been launched by Alfa Laval. It has been designed in a user-friendly way to help power station operatives understand the theory of ALCAP systems.
ALCAP separators are ide- ally suited to applications where the density and visc- osity of the oil varies con: tinuously. Unlike ordinary separators they can accept oils of densities up to 1010 kg/m3 at 15C and visc- osity up to 700 cSt/SOC without the need for manual adjustment. This greatly im- proves separator perfor- mance and reduces operation and maintenance costs. People completing the ALCAP training pro- gramme will be able to operate confidently all types of ALCAP systems.
The programme runs on Windows 3.1 or Windows 95 and is stored on a CD-ROM using multimedia techni- ques including animations, short video sequences, sound and text. The pro- gramme covers several ba- sic sections: the ALCAP separation system; ALCAP fuel oil; ALCAP for lube oil; and monitoring and control.
The user works interac- tively through a series of well-illustrated questions, with the answers adjusted to their knowledge level. The entire course takes about one day to complete, after which the users per- formance can be assessed. If satisfactory, the user can send the disk to Alfa Lavals head office for an official certificate to be issued. Si- milar software training pro- grammes for other Alfa Lava1 systems, such as heat transfer, are planned.
