Industrial Water Softeners
Nancrede Engineering commercial and industrial water softeners are the result of nearly half a century of experience in the design and manufacture of quality water treatment equipment that meets the exacting demands of commercial and industrial water users. Nancrede Engineering industrial water systems feature unique, patented engineering innovations to provide greater efficiency, more capacity, higher flow rates, higher system reliability, and lower operating costs.
Typical Industrial Water Softener Applications
Dairies, schools, factories, hospitals, laundries, car washes, nursing homes, boiler feed water, food industry plants, municipal water works, apartments and condominiums, motels, hotels, resorts, manufacturing facilities, institutional facilities, office complexes, cooling towers, farms…each could benefit from the installation of a Nancrede Engineering water softener. The system quickly begins paying for itself through reduced energy consumption, extended water appliance life, and lower plumbing repairs. Water heaters and boilers will last longer; costly special chemicals for boilers and steam handling equipment can be greatly reduced; the service life of linens, clothing, fixtures and appliances will be noticeably extended; and process water will be more consistent and efficient.
Industrial Water Softening Process Theory
The Nancrede Engineering water softeners utilize hydraulic or pneumatic valves, which feature a co-current regeneration sequence based upon elementary principles of iron exchange. Initially, strong acid cation resin in the sodium (Na +1) form is placed into service. During the sodium cation exchange water softening process, sodium ions are exchanged for undesirable quantities of calcium (Ca +2), magnesium (Mg +2), and iron (Fe +2). Sodium ions already present in the water being softened pass through the process unchanged. Upon exhaustion of the resin (as indicated by unacceptable hardness leakage), a regeneration sequence involving sodium chloride (NaCl) is utilized. The generation sequence reverses the above process and converts the strong acid cation resin back to the sodium form for the subsequent water softening cycle. Capacities range from 20,000 to 30,000 grains per cubic foot depending upon the total dissolved solids content of the water, the effluent water quality desired, and the amount of sodium chloride regenerant used. It should be noted that although the water is softened, the total dissolved solids content remains unchanged. Further, the effluent contains the same amount of anions as the raw water. The equipment is co-currently operated (down-flow exhausted; down-flow regenerated). All models have five distinct cycles of operation:
- Service – softening process; down-flow
- Backwash – hydraulic cleaning; up-flow
- Brine inject – restores resin to sodium form; down-flow
- Slow rinse – displaces residual brine; down-flow
- Fast flush – prepares softening resin for service cycle; down-flow.
