Commercial water softener applications:
Commercial water softeners, like household water softeners, provide a variety of benefits to businesses while addressing hard water issues. Commercial water softeners can take the business to the next level by providing benefits such as longer appliance lifespans and lower maintenance costs, as well as fewer plumbing repairs.
Commercial water softeners are not only important for the customer experience; they also help restaurant and hotel owners control their costs. The effects of hard water can be seen not only in food quality, cleaning efforts, and water supply – but also in water and electricity bills.When you run your heavy-duty commercial equipment on hard water, it has to work harder for longer periods of time. Problems can and will arise, increasing your costs and necessitating repairs.
The minerals in hard water are the source of its problems. Calcium and magnesium concentrations can build up in appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers, clogging water supply pipes. The performance and productivity of appliances and plumbing exposed to mineral scaling suffers. Repairs or replacement will be required to restore productivity. You can combat the effects of hard water by using a commercial water softener. Appliances will require less maintenance, your bills will be lower, and there will be no buildup in your plumbing. Your customers will be impressed, too!
Most businesses have at least one water-consuming appliance, such as a refrigerator, washer, or dishwasher. Many types of equipment fail to function properly due to high levels of calcium and magnesium, which can lead to an increase in energy costs and/or complete failure of the equipment.
It makes no difference whether it is a small business or a large commercial or industrial plant. A properly sized water softener can help keep your appliances and equipment running smoothly.
Soft water is essential if the business requires washing clothes, sheets, or towels. Laundry washed in hard water can become discolored and diminished, resulting in a low-quality product for your business. The high flow rates of water softeners allow your water supply to keep up with the needs of your customers. Customers in a hotel will be able to shower while the kitchen washes dishes and housekeeping does the laundry for the day.
What is the process of a commercial water softener?
Through ion exchange, a water softener removes minerals found naturally in water sources. Water is filtered through plastic resin beads that have been coated with sodium molecules, which interact with magnesium, calcium, and other metallic minerals. Because calcium and magnesium ions are positively charged, they interact with negatively charged resin beads.
When the beads interact with the hard minerals, their positive molecules are captured and sodium is released into the water. Sodium molecules replace calcium and magnesium molecules in the water, lowering the mineral content and preventing buildup and interference with cleaning chemicals.
When choosing a commercial water softener for your business, one of the most important factors to consider is size. The proper water softener will ensure a consistent and efficient flow of softened water while wasting no energy.
Your professional water treatment specialist will consider the following factors when determining the appropriate size for your needs:
· Flow rate: The rate at which water moves through your facility, particularly during peak operation.
· Volume: The amount of water that flows through the facility at its peak.
· The amount of calcium, magnesium, and other hard minerals present in the water supply.
· The amount of softening material required to soften the water, measured in grains per day.
