Many factors must be taken into account during the design of an industrial water softener system. The first issue to look at is the application: what is the system going to be used for? Industrial Water Softeners can be used in a wide variety of applications and industries: refineries, power plants, food processing, hospitals, cooling towers, boiler feed, and hotels for example.

The second variable in the design process is figuring out the daily demand on the system. This is calculated in gallons per minute (GPM), gallons per day (GPD), and the influent water quality. The vessel size, pipe size, and control valve sizes are all dictated by the daily demand. A good rule of thumb is that each vessel does not regenerate more than once per day. The bed velocities need to be at an acceptable rate to minimize pressure loss and increase bed longevity. Bed velocities can range from being extremely conservative to extremely aggressive. Most designs call for bed velocities of 8 to 12 gallons per minute per square foot of bed surface area.

To make sure that a vessel does not regenerate more than once per day, an analysis of the influent water is critical. The water hardness and salt dosage is what determines the capacity of a cubic foot of cation resin. Water hardness consists of calcium and magnesium, which is measured in parts per million (PPM) or grains per gallon (GPG). To calculate the capacity of a water softener, you will need to figure salt dosage, water hardness, and the number of cubic feet of resin per vessel.
Salt dosage of 10 lbs. per cubic foot equals 25,000 grains.

Example:

25,000 grains x 100 cubic feet of resin=2,500,000 total grains divided by hardness in grains per gallon (30) GPG=83,333 gallon capacity.

The above example means that with 100 cubic feet of resin per vessel at a hardness level of 30 GPG, the capacity per vessel would be 83,333 gallons before the Industrial Water Softener would need to regenerate. At a 10 lbs. salt dosage per cubic foot of resin, the vessel would use 1,000 lbs. of salt for every 83,333 gallons of water that was softened.

Pressure Loss

When designing the Industrial Water Softener System, pressure loss must be carefully considered. The variables that impact system pressure loss are resin bed depth, bed surface area, size/type of control valves, pressure vessel internals, and pipe size. The deeper the resin bed, the more pressure loss the system will have. This is also the same for the bed velocity. Higher bed velocities lead to an increase in pressure loss. Typical design calls for no more than a 1 psi drop across the service control valves. The valves are rated for a certain flow rate at a 1 psi drop. This is called Cv and must be calculated in all design work. Below are charts of various control valves and their Cv. We consider pressure loss of more than 15 psi across the entire system to be unacceptable.

Our control valves can be designed to accommodate any application. Aquamatic diaphragm valves are the most cost effective option, using air or water to control the opening and closing of the system’s valves. Depending on the control valves’ manufacturer and materials of construction, these valves can be rated for over a million cycles.

Water Softening Capacity ranges from 2000 LPH (Residential) to 50,000 LPH (Industrial).
