Water softening is a form of water treatment that was created to assist prevent headaches in both the industrial and home sectors.
What is the definition of hard water?
Hard water is defined as water with a high concentration of dissolved minerals, particularly calcium and magnesium. The minerals are not harmful to humans, but they do contribute to calcium carbonate deposits in boilers, industrial equipment, and domestic appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines. Scaling increases the cost of heating water, reduces machine efficiency, and clogs pipes.
What is the definition of a commercial water softener?
A commercial water softener removes the extra minerals in your water and replaces them with salt, preventing hard water from forming on industrial equipment, boilers, and other heating and cooling systems. Water softeners come in a variety of forms, the most common of which is a salt-based ion exchange softener.
This water softener is made up of two parts:
>The brine tank holds the salt, which is combined with water to make a brine solution.
>The resin tank, where water is pumped through at a high pace to wash off calcium, magnesium, iron, dirt, and sediment.
The size and frequency of regeneration are the key differences between a water softener used in a commercial environment and one used in a home setting. Because soft water is not accessible during the regeneration process, it is critical in commercial applications that the unit be sized suitably for the amount of water used each day. A regeneration cycle usually occurs at night, when soft water isn't required. However, in some commercial applications, soft water is required 24 hours a day, so dual water softener units may be installed so that one can soften the water while the other regenerates.
Salt is used every time a softener regenerates. Because salt is corrosive and can cause wear and tear over time, it's critical to properly size the water softener machine so that it only needs to regenerate once a day.Water softeners are required by a wide range of commercial businesses. Just a few examples include restaurants, hotels, apartment buildings, nursing homes, and manufacturing plants. Soft water is especially crucial in today's office buildings, which require it for cooling towers in data server centres.
A commercial water softener will help you run your business more efficiently, using fewer detergents and cleaners, reducing hard water build-up inside pipes and machinery, and preventing unnecessary wear and tear on your equipment. Each commercial water softener application must be scaled and billed separately based on your company's water usage.
