In July 2013, Pure Aqua designed and manufactured a commercial twin alternating water softener with 30” FRP tanks, 30” brine tank and Aquamatic valves for a major company in Nicaragua. Feed water to the softener was well water. Its purpose was to lower the hardness in the water to drinking standards. Each Softener produced 30 GPM. It was controlled by a digital stager.
A commercial twin alternating water softener is designed to alternately eliminate minerals that cause hardness in water. To avoid negative outcomes such as clogged pipes, damaged boilers, and heated exchangers, it is highly recommended to utilize a water softener to soften water and to demolish lime scale deposits. Lime scale build-up clogs up pipes and reduces the efficiency of hot boilers, tanks, and laundry machines. To accomplish this task, water softeners take advantage of resin for assistance. Resin is insoluble, made of small beads, and produced from an organic polymer substrate. The highly porous structure includes negatively charged “exchange sites” that carry sodium ions. When water flows through the softener, positively charged ions like calcium, magnesium, and iron will be glued to the exchange sites on the bead. Resin is widely used in processes such as separation, purification, and decontamination widely utilize resin.
