Water softening plant is used for removal of total hardness dissolved in water. Water softening plant ensures the maximum utilization of the effective surface area, uniform space and linear velocity across the resin bed which provides effective contact time between water and resin bed yield soft water and prevent any precipitation and scale formation on the surface of heat exchanges and any process equipment where water is being used for further application.Why softening is done?
Hard Water can lead to the following water problems:
- Decrease the water flow rate
- Highly indigestive
- Not suitable for skin
- Scale build-up in pipes, resulting in decreased flow rates
- Scale build-up on heating and cooling systems, leading to increased electricity costs and breakdowns.
- White film on glass surfaces and staining on Water taps.
- Increased laundry costs due to hard Water reacting with soap and laundry detergents.
A softener controls scaling by removing hard scale–forming cation such as calcium and magnesium and exchanging (i.e., replacing) these ions for non scale- forming sodium ions.Why to choose us?
With the inclusion of contemporary machines and advanced tools in all our processes, we are engaged in manufacturing, exporting and supplying a wide range of water softener to separate hardness producing ions, calcium and magnesium.
EFPL’s softening plant is designed to cater to the requirement of scale Prevention of Utility / Plumbing Fixtures from Total Hardness. They are available in Bungalow / Institutional / Industrial Models.Working Principle
Water softening is a process where Calcium and Magnesium ions are exchanged for Sodium ions. Calcium and Magnesium ions associated with Alkalinity contribute for scale formation. These ions are also called as Total hardness.
The process of ion exchange softening is completed using resin beads coated in sodium as a medium. The sodium of the resins attracts the ions of the minerals that harden the water. As the hard water flows through the mineral tank, the sodium ions, which line the sides of the tank, are replaced by the mineral ions that are in the water flow, thus removing those hard water minerals from the water, producing softened water. When the resin is exhausted, it is regenerated with brine solution (Sodium Chloride) 10 % or 15% brine solution is normally used for the regeneration.
