Water softeners and their uses across industries

An automatic ion exchange water softener will remove hardness from the water which in turn saves money. Typical industrial applications include central heating protection, boiler feed water, car wash systems, RO pre–treatment, catering systems, cleaning applications, the retail sector and the electronics industry.

What is hard water?

Rainwater which falls on chalk and limestone dissolves and collects hardness minerals such as calcium and manganese. This water collects in underground aquifers before either naturally coming back to the surface as streams or being pumped via a borehole. The minerals naturally drop out of solution forming scale deposits, especially when the water is heated. In many applications, this scale build-up becomes unsightly or interferes with the efficiency of applications, and needs to be removed. Just 1.6mm of scale build up will cause a 12% loss in heating efficiency in boiler water. Softened water also reduces the excessive use of detergents and soaps.

How does a water softener work?

An automatic water softener consists of a pressure vessel filled with resin. Located on the top of the pressure vessel is the control valve. The water is passed through the control valve and down through the vessel. As the water passes through the resin bed, the calcium and magnesium attach to the resin so the water leaving the unit is soft. Periodically, depending on how much water is used, the resin needs to be refreshed. This is done by flushing a small amount of salt (stored in an external brine tank), though the resin vessel. Once this process has been completed the resin is refreshed and ready to begin again.
