Water Softener Plant

Ion Exchange is one of the best water softening plant Manufacturers in India. We offer Industrial water softener plant at the best price. Natural water contains multiple compounds in varying concentration that increase the hardness of water. ZeroB water softeners convert hard water to soft water by removing hardness causing salts (Calcium & Magnesium) through ion exchange resin system to provide you with “Zero” hardness water at your individual house, bungalow and apartments etc. Apart from water softeners, our product range includes a wide range of Zero B WVM 50 LPH Water Vending Machine and Zero B WVM 200 LPH Water Vending Machine.

What is a Water Softener Plant?

A hard water softener used sodium chloride, or salt to treat hard water. Hard water contains an excess of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, manganese, and iron. These minerals remain present in the underground water supply. The water heated in the home gets converted into crystalline form and sticks to household surfaces. Sodium chloride is used as an effective water softening component that replaces these unwanted hard minerals.

A water softener is a simple appliance that is loaded with salt. The water softener plant mainly involves the supply of water through the water softener over the rows of resin beds that perform a key role in the ion-exchange process.

The unwanted ‘hard’ mineral ions are chemically attracted to the resin beads and are exchanged them with sodium ions. Softener resin is mainly strong acid Cation Resin.

When the resin beads become saturated with the minerals, the water softener cleanses them with a salt solution called brine and the process begins again. Water softeners are fairly easy to operate and maintain. All that needs to be done after installation is to periodically add sodium chloride and the water softener does the rest.

Sodium salts are not hard scales forming so that water without the calcium and magnesium salts is called soft water.

Water softener-Product Overview

A water softener is a unit that is used for softening water. It removes the hardness that causes the hardness in water.

Water softening involves reduction of the hardness of water in households and companies. Hard water clogs the pipes and soaps become easily dissolvable in it. Hard water leads to a higher risk of limescale deposits in household water systems. Due to the increased accumulation of limescale, pipes are clogged and hot boilers and tanks lose their efficiency. There is a significant jump in the cost of domestic water heating and the rate even go up to 20 percent of the previous. Limescale damages household machinery, such as laundry machines. To weed out such harmful effects of hard water, water softening is necessary since it expands the lifespan of the household machines such as laundry machines, and the lifespan of pipelines. It also improves the working of solar heating systems, air conditioning units, and many other water-based applications helping in their longer lifespan.

How does a water softener perform?

Water softening mainly takes place through the following processes listed below

1) Soda lime treatment

2) Ion exchange resin based Nanofiltration

3) Reverse osmosis

Water softeners are specific ion exchangers that are designed to remove ions, which are positively charged.

Softeners mainly remove calcium (Ca2+) and magnesium (Mg2+) ions since they are referred to as ‘hardness minerals.

They are sometimes even applied to remove iron. The softening units remove up to five milligrams per litre (5 mg/L) of dissolved iron.

Water softeners can be operated automatically, semi-automatically, or manually. Water softeners are rated depending on the amount of hardness it can necessarily remove before the regeneration process gets initiated.

A water softener collects hardness minerals within its conditioning tank and from time to time flushes them away to drain. Ion exchangers, used for water softening, replace the calcium and magnesium ions in the water with other ions, such as sodium or potassium. The exchanger ions are added to the ion exchanger reservoir as sodium and potassium salts (NaCl and KCl).

A quality water softener is durable and will last many years. Servicing and topping on a regular basis can contribute to the longevity of a water softener.
