2000 LPD water softner plant :
The 2000 LPD water softner plant contains a tank full of resin beads looking for positively-charged ions. The beads capture calcium and magnesium, which stick to the resin beads, which are drastically removed from the water.
Once the adhesive beads are hard coated, the water should be softened and regenerated. Salt sits in the bottom of the salt tank or in particles. When water flows through the salt tank, it contacts salt and creates a sodium solution called salt water.
The resin beads are bombarded with salt, so they surrender the calcium and magnesium ions and send them to the drain. Salt in the brine tank recharges the resin with sodium ions, so the softener is ready to treat water again.
Water softner does not reduce total dissolved solids (TDS). In fact, it adds solids soluble in water. Removing TDS after softening is very effective. A water softener exchanges calcium and magnesium ions for two to one sodium ions: two sodium ions for each mineral ion.
The amount of sodium added to soft water is very low, but mothers who are on a reduced sodium diet or who have children in infant formula may be concerned.
A reverse osmosis system installed after a softner will remove any excess sodium from the water. Use a DTS meter to determine the amount of solids in your water after softening. Potassium chloride is an alternative to softening salt, but it is three times more expensive and a maintenance nightmare. Potassium moves easily, resulting in softening and cleaning of the extra salt tank.
