Water Softeners

 PROCESS

   Softening by ion exchange resin is the most common and probably the easiest method of removing hardness (that is calcium andsoftener for water treatment magnesium) from water and renders the water suitable for utility purpose. As the name implies ion exchange is a process in which undesirable ions are exchanged for more desirable ions.

 The softening process consists of passing raw water containing hardness through a bed of cation resin in sodium form. The hardness ions Ca & Mg are taken by resin and in exchange, the sodium ions are relinquished from the resin. This is called the service cycle.The intake to the system is drawn from the Open bore well. It is then pumped through a Feed Pump to the Softener,then the processed water goes to the storage tank.Provision for the regeneration is given.

 

Water Softeners Have Four Main Components:

1) Control Valve- directs the flow of the water within the unit and determines when the unit needs to regenerate

2) Ion Exchange Resin- small polymer beads that attract the hardness minerals in exchange for sodium ions

3) Pressure Tank - contains the ion exchange resin

4) Salt Cabinet or Brine Tank- contains the salt to make the brine solution that is used to regenerate the ion resin bed
