Industrial Water Softeners remove hardness ions from water through ion exchange, which exchanges hardness ions for more harmless ions, such as salt.Hard water is water that has calcium and/or magnesium salts dissolved in it. The degree of hardness is directly related to the concentration of these salts. Hard water consumes soap and adversely affects washing and cleaning operations in the home and throughout industry. Hard water salts form scale in pipe lines, boilers, heat exchangers, hot water heaters, water chillers & UV shells.
Water softeners contain a resin that removes the magnesium and calcium deposits that cause water to be hard. Periodically the resin needs to be regenerated by flushing with salt water. This is done automatically, all you have to do is add inexpensive tablet salt once a month. The salt does not enter the water supply, of course. It is simply flushed away by the softener automatically once it has finished its job of regenerating the resin. Softener systems outfitted with Automatic Controllers and Progressive Flow technology contribute to initial cost savings and long-term maintenance cost reduction. This technology constantly measures water demand and brings softeners on-line or off-line, as flow demand fluctuates. This allows for a custom system that is appropriately sized for your process needs, saving you costs up-front and in maintenance.
