Hardness ions, calcium and magnesium build up on piping, heat exchangers, water heaters, boilers, auto-claves, steam generators and any other steam related equipment. The scale buildup impedes water flow resulting in costly repairs, increased energy consumption, and clogged heat exchangers and boiler tubes. The life of linens, clothing, appliances and fixtures is also greatly reduced due to these “hard” minerals.
Water softeners are used to treat what is commonly called “hard” water. Water softening uses an ion exchange resin to remove calcium and magnesium from hard water.
Softened water is also used in many process applications such as the production of cleaning agents and chemical production. For laundry and dish washing, the use of a water softener will significantly reduce the amount of soaps and detergents, resulting in reduced operating expenses.
The following facilities are examples of ideal applications for water softening equipment:
Apartments / condominiums
Food processing plants
