Water Softeners

Standard Features

How to size a softener? A softener is sized on the basis of two different parameters, i.e.: Exchange capacity, that is the quantity of water delivered between regenerations, and maximum flow rate, which is the maximum quantity of water requited at any peak usage period.

  • The Industrial Steel Tank Automatic Water Softener (SF-100S Series) softeners are designed as fully automatic units either with timer or meter control. The timer control initiates softener regeneration at any predetermined time - on any or every day. The metered models start regeneration based on the total gallons used.
  • The steel mineral tank is engineered for a 100 psi working pressure and is tested to 150 psi. It is equipped with a manhole in the upper dome.
  • The interior of the tank is coated with epoxy for protection against rust and corrosion. The exterior has a rust inhibiting primer coat.
  • A premium grade sulfanated nonphenolic polystyrene type resin is contained in the mineral tank. The resin will deliver 30,000 grains per cubic foot when brined at a rate of 15 lbs. per cubic foot.
  • The brine tank is a combination of high density polystyrene brine measuring tank and a brine valve, including an air eliminator valve and a safety brine refill shut off to prevent tank overflow.
  • The automatic regeneration controller features a choice of 7 or 12 day calendar wheels. Time of regeneration and length of time for each regeneration cycle are fully adjustable.
  • The under drain utilizes either a hub & lateral or a header & lateral system to evenly distribute water and prevent resin loss, and to insure minimal pressure drop at peak flow rates.
