    How NEWater Designs Your Industrial Water Softener System

    NEWater is a professional solution provider of industrial water softeners. In the whole process, when the raw water containing hardness ions passes through the resin layer in the exchanger, the calcium and magnesium ions in the water are replaced by the sodium ions adsorbed by the resin.

    The resin adsorbs the calcium and magnesium ions, while the sodium ions enter the water. The water that comes out of the exchanger is the softened water with the hardness removed. The resins we offer are regenerative, which can reduce your input costs and improve the utilization of materials.

    ➣What is Water Softening?

    Water softening simply refers to the process of eradicating minerals responsible for water hardness (Calcium and magnesium) from water. Softened water is ideal for most industrial, commercial, and domestic applications since it mitigates scaling and does not limit soap cleaners.

    The utilization of hardened water results in soap wastage and the formation of hard scales on equipment resulting from the magnesium and calcium ions reaction with fatty acids. Ion exchange and the use of chemicals such as sodium carbonate and slaked lime are the primary water-softening mechanisms.

    ➣What is an Industrial Water Softener System?

    Industrial water softener systems are water treatment units that use resins to eliminate magnesium ions as well as calcium ions from water, consequently generating soft water for industrial applications. Principally, most industrial water softeners utilize ion exchange to eject calcium, magnesium, and excessive iron from feed water.

    Softened water is pivotal for most industrial applications given it thwarts the formation of hard scales on valuable equipment, which could result in clogging and ultimately, premature damage. In addition to the ejection of calcium and magnesium, water softeners often eliminate huge chunks of dissolved iron (up to 5 mg/l).

    What is the Composition of a Brine Tank?

    The brine tank is a vital component of the industrial water softener system responsible for regeneration. A brine tank is generally composed of highly concentrated salt and in some instances potassium. During regeneration, the salt solution (brine) held in the brine tank is drawn into the mineral tank and consequently used to recharge the bed of resin beads.

    Figure 7 Brine tanks.

    How do Water Softener Units Function?

    Water softener systems technically function by swapping positively charged magnesium and calcium ions with sodium ions. Hard water is injected into a mineral tank often made of fiberglass. The tank is composed of negatively charged ions, which replace the positively charged ions in the water. This is accomplished by the ion exchange resins, which are typically perforated beads measuring 1 to 2 mm in diameter.

    Continuous water softening results in the saturation of the resin beads by the hardness minerals hence prompting the regeneration cycle. Regeneration involves the addition of negatively charged ions into the resin beads.

    Figure 6 How a water softener system works.

    How is Hard Water Different from Soft Water?

    While the differences may not be visually told apart, the use of hard water or soft water in different applications has varying implications. Chiefly, hard water contains immense portions of calcium ions and magnesium ions while soft water is mainly devoid of such minerals.

    The high calcium and magnesium concentration in hard water bring about scaling and squandering of detergents while soft water is conducive for use in cleaning and industrial applications. Additionally, consumption of hard water can be valuable to human health due to the presence of vital minerals like calcium which are absent in soft water. Water hardiness is graded based on the concentration of calcium carbonate as follows:

    • Soft water: 0-60mg/l.
    • Moderately hard water: 61-120 mg/L.
    • Hard water: 121-180 mg/L.
    • Very hard water:  Over 180mg/L.

    What is Mushing in Industrial Water Softening?

    Salt mushing refers to the disintegration of salts in a water softener bringing about the origination of tiny granules that are mainly insoluble. Salt mushing often results in clogged intake valves found at the base of your brine tank.

    To thwart clogging of the intake valves, regular cleaning is recommended. If your industrial water softener systems keep experiencing mushing, you are advised to utilize a different type of salt. Cleaning instructions of the system are clearly outlined in our manual.

    Can Water Softening be Used as a Pretreatment for Reverse Osmosis Systems?

    Yes. Both magnesium ions and calcium ions based in hard water can cause scaling in reverse osmosis equipment if not adequately treated. To avert the dangers of scaling on RO systems, water softening through chemical treatment of ion exchange is deployed to eradicate the hardness mineral. Well water typically contains high volumes of calcium, magnesium, and often iron ions hence the need for softening prior to treatment by reverse osmosis.

    What are the Basic Components of Industrial Water Softener Systems?

    Industrial water softeners are made of three key components, which are integrated to effectively soften hard water. Generally, the components are responsible for eradicating hardness minerals, observing the water flow, and facilitating regeneration and cleaning.

    Mineral Tank.

    This is probably the most significant component of water softener systems. Hardened water is deposited into the mineral tank where the bed of resin beads substitutes the calcium ions as well as the magnesium ions with sodium ions.

    Control Valve.

    Figure 5 Control valve.

    Additionally, industrial water softeners have control valves with meters that regulate the volume of water moving into the mineral tank. The control valve is further responsible for launching the regeneration process once the resin beads are overwhelmed by the calcium and magnesium cations with a positive charge.

    Brine tank.

    Typically, brine tanks are smaller in size and are adjacently positioned beside the mineral tanks. The brine tank ensures the resin beads remain positively charged by harboring highly concentrated saline solutions.

    Is Softened Water Fit for Human Consumption?

    Soft water is perfectly safe for human consumption despite harboring salts. The concentration of sodium ions that substitute the calcium and magnesium ions is well within the set threshold for healthy drinking water. Softening moderately hard water with a hardness rate of 86 ppm results in softened water with 37 mg of sodium per liter, which is 2% less the stipulated daily sodium intake.

    What Is the Energy Consumption of Industrial Water Softener Systems?

    Energy consumption in water softener systems is no cause for concern as are most appliances. Water softeners softening running water in a household consumes approximately 70KWh of electricity annually. Comparatively, this is similar to an alarm clock.

    However, the energy consumption in industrial water softener systems is higher given the size of the systems and volume of water softening. The power consumption is however efficient and significantly less in comparison to alternative water treatment systems like reverse osmosis systems.

    Figure 10 Industrial water softener plant.

    What are the Limitations of Industrial Water Softener Systems?

    Despite being extremely efficient and effective in softening water, industrial water softener systems do so at various costs. Although softened water is considered fit for human consumption, it can be detrimental to the health of patients on low-sodium prescriptions.

    Purchasing an industrial water softener unit is also considerably expensive and maintenance can be relatively costly. Additionally, frequent cleaning of the system is necessitated and softened water is largely unsuitable for irrigation.

    There are varying mechanisms often exploited to generate softened water for industrial applications but none matches the efficiency and effectiveness of ion exchange resins. Common water softening technologies include lime-softening, washing soda, crystallization, and reverse osmosis.

    Ion Exchange

    Ion exchange is the prevalent water softening mechanism in industrial processes. Principally, ion exchange functions by substituting the hardness ions (calcium, magnesium, and rarely iron cations) with sodium ions. First, the hard water is pumped through a mineral tank where it is subjected to resin beads spherical in shape harboring sodium ions. Often, resin beads are manufactured from polystyrene.

    The positively charged magnesium and calcium cations are grasped by the resin beads harboring negative charge while sodium ions are injected. The automatic regeneration permits a preprogrammed refill of negatively charged sodium ions.

    Figure 3 Ion exchange process.

    Are There Varying Types of  Water Softener Systems for Industrial Use?

    The intricacies of different applications demand the manufacture of varying water softener systems. The difference in industrial water softener systems is often captured by the varying designs, customization for certain applications, water softening processes, and scales of use.

    Which Salts are Used in Industrial Water Softener Systems?

    Figure 8 Softening salt.

    Industrial water softeners technically treat hardened water by adding salt. Various salt types are viable for use in industrial water softeners but the choice is often informed by the design and specifications of the system. Below are salts commonly utilized in water softeners.

    Rock salt

    Rock salt is broadly acquired from natural salt deposits found underground and has a sodium chloride concentration ranging from 98 to 99%. Certain components of rock salt are not soluble in water meaning the softener tanks necessitate regular cleaning.

    Solar Salt

    Solar salt is characterized by a sodium chloride concentration of 85% and is mainly obtained via evaporation. Unlike rock salt, it is slightly more soluble in water and hence does not command regular cleaning.

    Evaporated Salt

    Evaporated salt is more soluble than rock salt but slightly less soluble when compared to solar salt. Its sodium chloride concentration ranges from 96.6% to 99%.

    Back to the guide ⇪

    How Frequent Should One Add Salt to an Industrial Water Softener?

    The frequency of regeneration cycles determines how frequently you are obliged to refill salt in your water softener’s brine tank. For optimal production of soft water, it is advisable that the salt level is mainly exceeding the halfway mark of your brine tank. The need to refill salt in your water softener system is mainly determined by the:

    • Quantity of water softened within a single regeneration cycle.
