CWT-3000-4” Triplex Industrial Softener System (400 GPM Softener System)
Complete Water Solutions supplied a triple tank softener system. The Industrial Water Softener comprised of (3) 72” Diameter x 72” Tall side shell. Each vessel was epoxy lined interior and polyurethane exterior coating. The reason the exterior coating was selected is to help with exterior environment corrosion. Vessels were 100 PSIG Non-Code. Each vessel contained 102 cubic feet of Dow Cation Resin Amberlite HPR 1100 Na (formally Dowex Marathon C)
Softeners utilized Promag 300 Flow Meters. The capacity of each softener vessel is 3,000,000 grain capacity based off of max salt dosage. The softener uses signals from a flow totalizer to initiate the automatic regeneration. Regeneration may also be initiated manually by an operator or by hardness monitor.
The valves are pneumatically controlled by individual solenoid valves. Each softener vessel has a Nema 4X enclosure to house the solenoid valves that control the valve operation. The softener main controller is a PLC system equipped with a Allen Bradley 1400 Micrologix and AB HMI
The hardness monitors selected for this project were waltron.
