Softening of water for industrial purposes is used for improving the process parameters, protection of machines, devices and tools, and, in the production lines themselves, for ensuring high-quality products.
Typical applications for water softening for industrial purposes are:
- Supply water for boilers
- Softening upstream from RO- and EDI- devices
- Washing of panes and glass products
- Cleaning systems and rinsing
- General production
With industrial applications, in addition to standard requirements regarding the design of the devices (process requirements of specific device requirements, analysis of incoming water, required flow rates and pressures), the operating regime of the system must also be taken into account. As a consequence, the softening devices for industry - in addition to single (Simplex) versions - are more often than not designed as double (Duplex) or even triple (Triplex) systems.
