Hot Water Softener Condensate Polisher Sizing Calculator & Guide

How do you size a hot water softener condensate polisher? The calculations below can be used as a guide for hot water softener condensate polisher  sizing. Condensate polishers are ideal for power generation, boiler feed and any critical applications where stainless steel (316L, 316, 304) is a requirement due to heat content in the water and where 0 ppm hardness is required. Stainless steel water softeners are also ideal for pharmaceutical, pharma water for injection (WFI), food and beverage, dairy and many other ultra pure water (UPW) applications.  Carbon filters, reverse osmosis systems, deionization (DI), DI exchange tanks, electrodeionization (EDI) systems, ultrapure water storage tanks, oxygen removal and carbon dioxide removal systems are used prior to the deaerator (DA) and boiler for optimal performance and efficiency. Other calculators for specialized industrial water softeners are here:

Many variables exist when sizing condensate polishers for power generation and critical boiler applications that are beyond the scope of the hot water softener condensate polisher calculator & guide below. Water pressure, temperature, flow rate and cubic feet of resin per tank are all variables that have effects on water softener sizing and are not considered. These guides are to be used for quick estimates for sizing, footprints & general design of condensate polishers.

For detailed condensate polisher softener sizing including configurations (e.g. single, twin parallel, twin alternating, triples, quad hot water softener polishers), control types (time-clock, metered, Allen Bradley, GE, Siemens PLC, progressive flow, additive flow) or specific specifications like (316, 316L, 304) stainless steel or specific valve types & instruments, it is important that you email or call Nancrede Engineering at 888-56-WATER (569-2837).
