The Benefits of Softened Water

water softeners The hardness forming salts i.e. the bicarbonates (temporary hardness) of calcium and magnesium and the sulphites, chlorides and nitrates (permanent hardness) of calcium and magnesium are generally the most troublesome constituents of natural water used industrially, due to their tendency to form scale on heat transfer surfaces. These hardness salts can be removed by passing the water through an ion-exchange resin that removes the calcium and magnesium and exchanges them for sodium salts which are non scale forming.

Some typical applications would be boiler feed water, cooling towers, air conditioning plants, bottling plants, dairies, dyeing, domestic households, hotels, schools, canteens, dishwashers and breweries. All the above applications could be potentially hampered or made less efficient by the build up of scale in the water system. Scale build up in boilers can be particularly hazardous and the build up of scale in cooling water and hot and cold water systems can harbour Legionella bacteria

water softener The B & V range of softeners are manufactured in accordance with our ISO 9001:2008 quality assurance scheme to ensure a long and trouble free operation. Models are available from the smallest domestic unit for small households, to large industrial units with high flow rates up to 100,000 litres per hour.

The model of water softener that will be required will be dictated by several different parameters as follows:
