Water softening is the process of removing Calcium (Ca+) and Magnesium (Mg+) from water, which cause hardness. Water softening is a method based on the ion exchange principle. Cationic based, synthetic softening resins In the softening process in which water is used, the hardening ions in the water are replaced by Na+ ions attached to the resin.
Softening resins During the softening process, the hardening minerals are attached to the sodium-based resin. After a while, the ion exchange capacity of the resin is filled and the softening efficiency decreases. In order for the resin to rebind the hardening ions, it must be regenerated. The regeneration process is the process of bonding sodium ions to the resin again, and the needed sodium is supplied from the sodium chloride salt.
It consists of regeneration, backwash, brine suction, slow and fast rinsing and salt tank filling processes. After the regeneration process, the ion exchange feature is regained to the resin.
