Industrial Water Softeners and Condensate Polishers >>

Industrial Water Softener WIth Triple Tank Parallel Operation with Optional Stainless Steel Face Piping Designed and Manufactured by Res-Kem LLC for a Major Brewery

Res-Kem is a leading manufacturer of industrial water softeners, including various standard and customizable standard systems. The range of systems include top mount fiberglass units for commercial and light industrial applications, Zeo-Tech pre-engineered steel tank valve nest systems for large industrial and municipal applications, non-conventional packed bed systems for critical industrial customers and condensate polishers for industrial boiler water. These systems are available for flow rates from gpm to 925 gpm and higher using multiple units.

Economical and efficient, Res-Kem softeners can be equipped to operate manually, semi or fully-automatically. Regardless of the set up, only limited technical expertise is required for operation.

Why treat Condensate?

Condensate systems always leak. Heat exchangers are where most of the Condensate Polishers Reduce Energy Waste by Increasing Heat Transfer Efficiencyleakage problems start. This is where untreated cooling water can contaminate the process water causing corrosion. Every system must have a method to handle this leakage. When a condensate system is not properly controlled or simply ignored, corrosion takes place. Iron, copper, and other harmful contaminants are washed back into the boiler systems. This wastes energy because these contaminants reduce heat transfer. A simple solution is to blow down the boiler to improve water quality, but this wastes heat and requires more makeup water.

The cost effective solution is to "polish" your contaminated condensate for reuse. As more condensate is reused, less make up water is required, reducing both chemical consumption and energy requirements.

Let Res-Kem work up the energy savings available by polishing your dirty condensate. The payback is both swift and dramatic.

The white paper, "Not All Softeners are Created Equal", shows two examples of how proper application of non-conventional, shallow shell cation exchange resin can reduce operating expenses by 40%, paying back the investment in less than three months and/or allow a system to operate where no softener has been able to.

Why use an Industrial Water Softener?

Calcium and magnesium are hard scale forming minerals that build up on piping, heat exchangers, water heaters, boilers and any steam related equipment. This buildup results in costly repairs, increased energy consumption, plugged heat exchangers and boiler tubes. The service life of linens, clothing, appliances and fixtures is greatly reduced due to these "hard" minerals.

Avoid Clogged Pipes with Water Softeners by Res-Kem LLC

For laundry and dish washing, the use of a water softener will significantly reduce the amount of soaps and detergents, resulting in reduced operating expenses.
