Industrial Water Softening
- Water flow from 0,125 to 20 m3/h
- Resin capacity from 25 to 550 litres
Babcock Wanson provides a wide variety of water softening equipment for process industry. With more than 60 years of experience, Babcock Wanson has installed thousands of water softeners and associated equipment, with a particular focus on providing treated water for steam boilers.
Water Softening is the process of removing Calcium (Ca+), Magnesium (Mg+), and other metal cations from raw water. These dissolved elements in the water need to be treated before it enters process equipment such as Steam Boilers and closed circuits (heat exchangers, pipes and fittings) because the less soluble compounds precipitate with heat, building up scales or deposits that can affect heat transfer leading to inefficiency and overheating of exchange surfaces or circuit failures.
