Water Softeners

Water Softeners: Application and Benefits

The unique design of our water softener range provides superior performance in hardness removal and iron and manganese removal, with the maximum efficiency in salt usage.

Our water softeners are designed for commercial and industrial applications.

Design Benefits

  • Packed Resin Columns
    Packed resin columns allow for the controlled exhaustion of the resin.
    Using a uniformed sized resin bead, this results in a horizontal exhaustion wave travelling up the softener vessel, as the resin exhausts.If the softener is regenerated on volume, this exhaustion wave can be contained within the resin volume, avoiding hardness, iron and manganese break through.
  • Fluidized Beds
    The flow is up the softener vessel. This reduces hydraulic frictional losses through the resin bed and allows for deeper resin beds than conventional designs.
  • Counter-current regeneration
    Counter-current regeneration results in approximately 30% salt savings over a conventional, (cocurrent regeneration), softener.
