Normalization: Understanding Your RO Membrane Conditions

Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a water treatment technology that separates dissolved contaminants from water by using specially-designed membranes. RO membranes are semi-permeable which only allow “pure” water to permeate through them while removing the vast majority of dissolved solids from the feedwater stream. RO applications can include drinking water production, power generation, steam boiler pretreatment, wastewater treatment, and the manufacturing of beverage, semiconductor, and pharmaceutical products.

How to Properly Size an Industrial Water Softener

Water softeners are ion exchange systems designed to remove scale-forming calcium and magnesium ions prior to boiler, cooling, and reverse osmosis systems. Many different sizes and configurations of softeners are available, with selection based upon factors such as water quality, system demand, and the overall application. In industrial applications, it is imperative that a properly sized softener is selected to ensure that hardness is not allowed to pass to critical system components. Both over and under-sized softeners can result in serious problems due to hard water in these systems.

Understanding Industrial Filtration

Waters from all over the world may contain suspended solids, microorganisms, and other unwanted contaminants that can cause damage to water systems. Heat exchangers, boiler tubes, cooling tower fill, system piping, etc. can become fouled without proper filtration. This results in a reduction in energy efficiency and increased maintenance repair costs.

How to Calculate Softener Capacity

Water softeners are ion exchange systems designed to remove scale-forming calcium and magnesium ions prior to boiler, cooling, and reverse osmosis systems. The amount of hardness a softener can remove between regenerations is known as the softener capacity and can be expressed either in grains or in gallons. Capacity is important when sizing, configuring, or troubleshooting a softener.

Softener Regeneration in Four Easy Steps

Everyone knows soft water feels different than hard water—but did you know soft water may be better for your water systems? To improve efficiency and extend the life of your water systems, scale-causing calcium and magnesium ions are replaced with sodium ions in the softening process. To regenerate a softener that has reached capacity, you must conduct four steps: backwash, brine draw, slow rinse, and fast rinse.

Review this infographic for details about how to achieve optimal softener performance, and turn to Chem-Aqua for all of your water treatment needs.
