Water Softener

(Industrial, commercial)

Water softener is a simple but the most efficient system to deal with hard water issues and of all the known methods, leaves the least effects. As soon the water started to pass through water softener, the system quickly begins paying off for itself through reduced energy consumption, extended water appliance life, and lower equipment and plumbing repairs. With soft water, water heaters and boilers last longer; saves costly specialty chemicals for boilers and steam handling equipment. It is also widely used as pre-treatment systems for RO/ NF systems and help these systems run with minimal operational issues and helps reduce membrane cleaning /replacement frequency.

Most water carry various dissolved salts including calcium (Ca2+) and magnesium (Mg2+) which specifically contributes to water hardness. Depending upon the Ca2+ and Mg2+ contents in water, water hardness increases risk for clogging pipes, produces scales and deposits, effect heat transfer rates in boilers and other heat transfer equipment, overheat design system’s parameters, effect washing process and increase soap and detergent consumption etc. Scale build up means more energy is required to heat the water that results in an increase in normal power / energy bills. Various technologies are available to reduce water hardness and make water suitable for any industrial, commercial and household water systems.

Water softening systems are used to reduce the hardness from the water and avoid hardness related problems during the specific quality water use. Many water softening techniques are available to reduce water hardness among which ion exchange is the post popular technology.

Ion exchange water softening uses specific ion exchange resins technology to remove naturally occurring minerals such as calcium and magnesium (which cause hardness in water) from water to prevent scale /deposits buildup in pipes and associated appliances. It  mainly removes Ca2+ & Mg2+ ions by replacing them with other ions (Na+). The process is widely used in most industrial and commercial setups to ensure that all heating and cooling systems run smoothly at their designed parameters. Water softeners support run system with reduced energy  losses, lower energy bills and  help achieve best operating performances  by extending the life expectancy of water-handling equipment and other process equipment.
