Mineral-rich water, or "hard water," is one of the leading causes for poor boiler performance. Hard water clogs the tubes and water side of your boiler system, leaving calcium scale deposits that can degrade over 30% boiler efficiency loss.
Water softening systems eliminate hard water and scale build up by introducing soluble sodium compounds (rock salt, solar salt, evaporated salt) to the water system. These sodium compounds replace calcium and magnesium compounds, effectively reducing lime hardness build up and increasing the life of your boiler or heat exchanger. Water softener systems provide increased flow rates, additional capacity and continuous, uninterrupted softened water.
Industrial Boiler & Mechanical can design and right size any water softener system; from apartment sized to large industrial applications.
• Increase the effectiveness of pipe cleaning systems
• Continuous soft water flow rates from 1 to 1,150 GPM
• Individual tank capacities from 15,000 to 5,400,000
• Self-adjusting flow control
• ASME certified pressure vessels
In addition to water softeners, we provide installation, commissioning, and servicing of media filtration, dealkalization, electro-deionization, and deionization equipment used in industrial and power utility water treatment systems.
Pre-engineered, cataloged systems are available to provide exchange capacities from 15,000 to 3,000,000 grains of hardness removal per vessel and service flow rates up to 750 gallons per minute per vessel. Increased flow rates and greater treatment capacities can be also achieved by banking multiple vessels together.
