Aquamatic Stager Controls Information for GE/Osmonics

Res-Kem has a significant amount of information on Aquamatic Stager Controls on this website. We wanted to make the information more easily accessible for our customers and others who use Aquamatic stager controls in their water treatment equipment.

Res-Kem uses Aquamatic Stager Controls for many of the systems we manufacture. Stager controls are used to automatically control softeners, dealkalizers, sand filters, multi-media filters, cation and anion deionizers. Also, we use these same stager controls, with a valve nest, to retrofit old Permutit, and Brunermatic multiport valves. Also, given our system expertise, we service these units in the field.

Res-Kem uses Aquamatic Stager Controls for many of the systems we manufacture. As the name implies, it is comprised of an Aquamatic Stager and an Aquamatic Control. Res-Kem uses Aquamatic valves with a variety of stager control combinations to automate the operation and/or regeneration of valve nest type water softeners and filters. Aquamatic Stager Controls are used to automatically control softeners, dealkalizers, sand filters, multi-media filters, cation and anion deionizers. These same stager controls can be used with virtually any other valve manufacturer with pneumatic actuated valves ONLY if their actuators are air/spring. These manufacturers include Keystone, Bray, George Fisher +GF+, Hayward, and Asahi. Also, we use these same stager controls, with a valve nest, to retrofit old Permutit, and Brunermatic multiport valves.

Aquamatic 962 Stager Controls:
The AquaMatic 962 stager controls combine an AquaMatic stager with an Autotrol 962 series electronic control, mounted and prewired in a NEMA-rated enclosure. When combined with a flow meter, the series 962 electronic controls provide sophisticated, demand-based water conditioning by monitoring the amount of water used. Time-based and/or external signal initiation is also available as a standard feature.GE Aquamatic 962 Stager Control Inside View showing Circuit Boards and Stager supplied by Res-Kem Corp

Aquamatic A100 Stager Controls:
This series of AquaMatic controls combines an electromechanical timer with a stager. The A100 series initiates a regeneration based on a time set on the built-in time clock.

Aquamatic A200 Stager Controls:
This series of AquaMatic controls combines an electromechanical timer with a stager. The A200 series initiates a regeneration when a signal is received from a water meter, sensor, pressure differential switch, push button or other remote device.

Aquamatic 7000A Programmable Regeneration Controller (DISCONTINUED):
These units are no longer sold. Through some careful engineering, the 7000A controller can be replaced with a Aquamatic 962 Stager Control. The Aquamatic 7000A was an electronic programmable regeneration designed to control the regeneration of filters and ion exchange processes. The 7000A was used in combination with an Aquamatic 48 Series Stager, Aquamatic 51 Series Stager, or Aquamatic 58 Series Stager.

Added are product specifications on Aquamatic Stagers. A stager is a motor-driven rotary multiport pilot valve, which is used to control a set of individual diaphragm valves in a predefined sequence.

There are five stager designs available:

  • Aquamatic Series 48 brass stager with six ports. The 48 stager can control typical softener or filter systems as well as sequential backwash filters.
  • Aquamatic Series 51 brass stagers with eight ports. Used for more complex systems such as non-standard softeners, twin alternating softeners or filters.
  • Aquamatic Series 96 brass stagers with eight ports. Used for more complex systems such as non-standard softeners, twin alternating softeners or filters.
    The 96 stager design is similar to that of the 51, but is rated for 250 psi (17 bar) and used for high pressure systems.
  • Aquamatic Series 58 PVC stager with sixteen ports. Used for more complex systems such as non-standard softeners, twin alternating softeners or filters.
  • Aquamatic Series 59 brass stager with sixteen ports. Used for more complex systems such as non-standard softeners, twin alternating softeners or filters.

Given our expertise building systems with Aquamatic Stager Controls, we can help you select the correct parts, select/troubleshoot stager controls or service stager in the field.
