Application: Hardness and Scale Reduction
This is model WS30-300-1.5"-D from our SF-100 Series.
A twin alternating water softener unit was created and executed in order to remove hardness from water. Harness in water does not allow soaps to work to their full capacity. Hardness makes it difficult for clothes to be cleaned and leaves skin with a "slippery" feeling. The way the twin alternating softener unit works is by having one tank remove hardness while the other is regenerating. The first tank is full of resin that is saturated in sodium ions. As water is going through the cycle, the resin attracts the calcium and magnesium ions that make the water hard. This then leaves the water with only sodium ions which do not have the same effect on soaps and detergents as calcium and magnesium ions have which leaves the water "soft". Once the first tank is full to capacity of taking calcium and magnesium ions, the tanks switch roles. Now the second tank will accept the role of removing hardness from water. The regeneration part of the process flushes a solution full of sodium ions through the tank, the resin now releases the calcium and magnesium ions and absorbs the sodium ions. This leaves the tank and resin in its original state again in order to repeat the process. The calcium and magnesium ions are discarded leaving the water soft and ideal for usage in hotels, schools, or restaurants.
Water Challenges: Water softeners are relied upon to reduce hardness and scaling in water for the purposes of producing fresh, clean water that can be used in industrial, commercial, or residential applications. Hard substances such as iron, magnesium, and calcium are responsible for much of the hardness and scale formation that occurs in water, and are targeted by water softeners during the removal process. Softened water provides more quality and is ideal for usage in laundry for clothes washing, and equipment used in industrial facilities, restaurants, hospitals, hotels, etc.
