Softening: removal of water hardness : Water naturally contains calcium and magnesium ions, which determine the degree of total hardness (TH). Hardness in water produces scale and is often harmful to installations and grids (i.e. clogged equipment, reduced heat transfer performance) and the quality of the finished product. Degrémont Industry offers a wide range of water softening equipment with upflow and counter-flow regenerative ion exchange systems tailored to suit the incoming raw water and the required quality of the treated water. Why choose softening units? Using Degrémont Industry softening units will ensure: Access to a vast array of modular equipment with devices to suit individual needs, and with the best quality versus price ratio Guaranteed reliability and proven efficiency Easy implementation Compliance with applicable legislation (CE, DESP and ACS (Certificate of Health Conformity) standards for drinking water) Access to the counter-flow regeneration technology using the UFD process (Up Flow Degrémont) for producing excellent quality softened water with reduced amounts of regeneration salt and limited volumes of effluent For further information, feel free to contact us.
