quality-controlled regeneration triggering

products OFS GmbH - advantages

Water softening systems usually work with the ion exchange process. The cations contained in the water, such as calcium and magnesium ions, are exchanged with sodium ions. When a complete replacement has occurred, saline flushing regeneration occurs.

This renewal can be dependent on time, quantity or quality. In most cases, volume-controlled regeneration is chosen for industrial plants. The resulting problems are resolved with a qualitative triggered regeneration of the softener.

There are several advantages with the online water hardness measuring systems for residual hardness monitoring Softcontrol RM or SaveCost C with qualitatively triggered renewal of the cations:

  • up to 160% more soft water throughput compared to volume controlled operation
  • up to 50% less salt and rinse water consumption
  • regeneration only after complete exhaustion of the resin
  • reduction of operating costs
  • increased longevity of the water softener
