Water softening plants sutiable for your application

If you like to install a water softening system in the private or industrial area we recommend our ready-for-use and efficient water decalcification system for different operational purposes in the private and industrial area.

How Does Water Softening Work?

Cations are responsible for the water hardness, in particular calcium ions and magnesium ions. The water softening via ion exchange is a treatment process. In this process cations are exchanged with sodium ions under use of cation exchange resins. A strongly acidic cation exchanger in the form of sodium is used as water softener in this process. The cation exchanger is loaded with sodium ions and exchanges them equivalently with the ions of the hardeners calcium and magnesium. Because one salt is exchanged with another during the process of water softening, this process is also called neutral exchanger.

Water Softener in Three Structures: Cabinet Softener, Single Tank Softener or Double Tank Softener

We carry water softening systems in three structures:

Cabinet softener: pressure tank and ion exchange resin are built in one cabinet container.
Single tank softener: pressure tank is separately next to the salt dissolving tank.
Double tank softener (also called duplex softener): Has a separate salt dissolving tank. Also suitable for industrial use.

We use two different types of central control valves for the cabinet and single tank softeners (Clack and BNT). All control valves are available with volume time control (so-called fully electronic control system). We offer the double tank softener with the actuators of the company Clack. Opposed to the normal double tank softeners, each pressure tank of the double system of Clack can be equipped with an own actuator. These control valves are connected through a motor driven 3-way valve. The use of this water softening system with two actuators enables high operational safety, due to the fact that if one actuator is damaged the water softening system won’t malfunction, but can be operated with the second valve.

Regeneration of the Water Softener

The process of the water softening can be reversed as regeneration for the water softener. For this purpose, sodium ions are offered to the ion exchanger in surplus. A saturated solution of sodium chloride can be used, which can be produced by dissolving common salt tablets, for example. If the system is in operation, you have to pay attention to a sufficient development time of the brine of at least five hours, before the saturated sole can be used for regeneration.

Water Softener Resin Suitable for Use

We are upgrading the water decalcification system for the drinking water treatment with a resin, which has an approval for drinking water and food. For systems for the technical area, where a softening of 0,1 ° dH is mandatory (boiler houses, before reverse osmosis), we use a resin with a monodisperse (monospheric) grain size distribution with an extremely fast exchange kinetics.
