Water Softener Australia
Water softener in Australia is a specialised ion exchanger offered by BioChem Water. In this method, we try to remove the positively charged ions. In addition, our water softener in Australia mostly removes calcium (Ca2+) and magnesium (Mg2+) ions. These ions are frequently described as “hardness minerals.”
Further, our water softener in Australia can be used to get rid of iron too. Our process helps in removing up to five milligrams per litre (5 mg/L) of iron dissolved. However, each water softener in Australia is evaluated based on the degree of hardness it can remove before the required regeneration.
How does the water softener of Australia remove the hardness minerals?
Our water softener in Australia stores hardness minerals in its conditioning tank. It then periodically flushes them out to the drain.
Ion exchangers are commonly employed to soften water. Likewise, when the ion exchanger is used to soften water, it replaces the magnesium and calcium ions in water with other ions, such as sodium and potassium. The exchanger’s ions are added to the reservoir of an ion exchanger in the form of potassium and sodium salts (NaCl along with KCl).
Carbonates of magnesium and calcium tend to precipitate as hard deposits on surfaces when the temperature of the water increases. This can affect the surfaces that contact them. This is primarily due to bi-carbonate ions decomposing thermally in the presence of high temperatures.
The scale built-up can hinder heat exchange or fouling and consequently increase energy costs since magnesium and calcium are thermal insulators. The deposits function as insulation which reduces the transfer of heat into water, thus reducing heating efficiency and also allowing components to overheat, which could result in stress cracks and costly downtime.
Implementation of our water softener in Australia is made up of a chemical process that involves an exchange of magnesium, calcium and a variety of other metal cations within the water.
The resultant soft water can be more compatible with the process water. So, get in touch with our team and have the best water softener in Australia for hard water.
