Avoid unnecessary plant down time, excessive maintenance costs and increased operating costs (fuel, labour, chemicals, etc.) By using an Filtec Water Softener these problems can be overcome. To do this the water is passed through a bed of ion exchange resin and as the water passes through, the calcium and magnesium ions are absorbed by the ion exchange resin and in return sodium ions are released. The result is softened water. Other minerals can be removed in a similar manner. This process continues until all the sodium ions are exchanged for calcium or magnesium, at which point the resin will then become exhausted. In order to obtain a further supply of softened water, the resin must be regenerated and this is achieved automatically by passing a solution of brine through the resin to remove the hardness minerals.
Filtec Industrial automatic water softeners are available in a versatile range of flow rates for almost any requirement.
