WHAT IS SOFTNING PLANT
The Industrial Softeners is a manually operated unit designed specially for industrial use. It is simple to operate, inexpensive to maintain and is widely used in the industry.
The softener comprises Steel /FRP pressure vessels containing a bed of cation exchange resin, a regenerating system and control valves.
A strongly acidic cation exchange resin in sodium form is used to exchange sodium ions for the hardness forming calcium and magnesium ions, and thus produce soft water .
At the end of each service cycle, the ion exchange resin is regenerated with sodium chloride solution, after which the units is ready for the next service cycle.
For larger plants, a brine measuring tank is provided, and a separate salt saturator, preferably in concrete, is recommended for bulk storage of salt and preparation of brine.
Standard equipments is available to soften water, upto a maximum flow rate of 275m3/h.
The series of softeners are attractive, compact, easy to operate & maintain, & use international quality materials of construction, introduced for the first time in India.
Softeners are available in MS, MSRL, FRP, operating in Manual / Auto mode.
Easy to install and operate.
Produces clear ,soft and non scale forming water.
Low operating costs.
Incorporates high-capacity polystyrene bead type cation exchange resin which is remarkably stable and has a long life.
