Most and least tolerable chemical impurities in water are the hardness producing ions, calcium and magnesium in different concentrations. And they are responsible for the hard scale that deposits and builds up in boiler tubes, pipe lines, condensers jackets, circulating system, cooking utensils and other equipment contracted by hot water.
AQUILA Softener is used primarily to produce Zero soft water by highly acidic cation exchanger, which removes calcium and magnesium ions. Which are dissolved hardness producing compounds in the water and are replaced by sodium ions?
The AQUILA series of water softeners are designed for counter current regeneration with up flow rate and co-current regeneration with down flow rate.
AQUILA series softeners are designed for longer operating cycles, low regeneration cost. The systems incorporate the proven technique Of counter and co-counter currant regeneration flow rate to economically to suit the demand of soft water for medium scale industries and commercial use. Application Boiler & Cooling water feed. Process water for chemical & textile. Hospital/Hostels/Homes/Commercial & institutional waterpower plants/Ice plant.
The Water Softeners are charged with a high capacity polystyrene bead cation exchange resin in sodium form. When hard water passes through this resin column, the hardness forming calcium and magnesium salts are replaced with sodium salts which do not possess any hardness properties. This softening process is continuous until the material is exhausted of sodium salts when it is regenerated with a solution of common salt.
The Water Softener units are designed on the advanced Co current/counter-current principle that ensures consistent good quality treated water.
