Ion exchange hard water conditioning is an incredibly effective way of balancing mineral content in water. The process essentially involves exchanging undesired ions, such as nitrate, sulphate and arsenic, with ions that have a similar charge. Hydrosmart supplies ion exchange hard water conditioners to domestic, commercial and industrial clients throughout Australia. Explore the benefits and applications below.
Improving Water Quality and Softness
Ion exchange hard water conditioners serve to remove magnesium and calcium ions found in hard water by exchanging them with sodium. This results in softer water, eliminating issues such as corrosion, rust and scale build-up in plumbing and appliances, as well as removing any biofilm.
Once ions are exchanged, the sodium charge depletes and any excess ions are flushed out. Once the charge is near depletion, the system regenerates to recover exchange capacity. Large mineral particles such as calcium and magnesium, which are responsible for scaling issues, are shrunk to a much smaller size to allow them to easily pass through water systems.
Reducing Chemical Usage
With a Hydrosmart water softener, there’s no need to rely on chemicals to improve water quality. This makes it a cost-effective, healthy and sustainable solution for households, commercial operations, industrial applications and large-scale agriculture.
You can improve soil conditions and yield in crops and home gardens simply by exchanging unwanted ions. Softening your water also improves the performance of detergents and cleaning agents, which are no longer negatively impacted by excessive mineral density in hard water.
Additional Benefits of Ion Exchange Hard Water Systems
Reducing mineral content through ion exchange in hard water conditioners also addresses issues like rust and corrosion which rely on the proliferation of minerals like calcium and magnesium. Addressing these issues prevents early wear and tear on pipes, taps, fixtures and appliances.
Algae and biofilm also rely on minerals to feed on and grow. By removing scale build-up from plumbing, water storage and other infrastructure, you limit problematic algae and biofilm growth, thus improving hygiene and health.
