Softening is a widely used technology for reducing hardness forming ions (Ca& Mg). In this process Hard Water is converted to Soft Water. When water is referred to as 'Hard' it simply means, that it contains excess of calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg) Ions than normal water.
Water softening is the act of exchanging dissolved calcium, magnesium (hardness ions) in water with sodium molecules with resin as the exchanging media
Reverse osmosis is a liquid filtration method which removes many types of large atomic molecules from smaller molecules by forcing the liquid at high pressure through a membrane with pores (holes) just big enough to allow the small molecules to pass through. It is most commonly known for its use in drinking water purification from seawater, removing the salt and other substances from the water molecules.
Demineralisation is the process by which total dissolved solids (TDS) present in water are removed effectively. A properly packaged unit incorporates the principles of ion exchange, degasification and polishing, to produce mineral free water.
Demineralised water finds wide application in the fields of steam, power, process and cooling. For maximum advantage it is necessary that the demineralisation plant is configured accurately. This is ensured by considering inlet water quality parameters and capacity requirements to offer optimal and cost-effective solutions.
