Nancrede Engineering commercial water softeners are the result of over 80 years of experience in the design and manufacture of quality water treatment equipment that meets the exacting demands of commercial water users. Nancrede Engineering commercial water systems feature greater efficiency, patented engineering innovations, more capacity, higher flow rates, higher system reliability, and lower operating costs. If safety is a concern, consider our new, patent pending Legionella Control Water Softener System.
Typical Commercial Water Softener Applications
Hospitals, medical buildings (MOB), surgery centers, labs, laundries, hotels, correctional facilities, schools, car washes, nursing homes, food industry plants, apartments and condominiums, motels, resorts, institutional facilities, office complexes, cooling towers, farms…each could benefit from the installation of a commercial water softener. The systems quickly begins paying for themselves through extended water appliance life, reduced energy consumption, and lower plumbing repairs. Boilers and water heaters will last longer; expensive special chemicals for boilers and steam handling equipment can be greatly reduced; the service life of clothing, linens, fixtures and appliances will be greatly extended; and process water will be more consistent and efficient.
Commercial Water Softening Process Theory
The Nancrede Engineering commercial water softeners utilize top mounted Fleck or Clack valves with pistons, which feature a co-current regeneration sequence based upon elementary principles of iron exchange. 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.
