Water Hardness Solutions - Water Softeners

A Word on Water Softeners

water softener will help you produce soft water. Soft water is gentle, beautifying, enriching. Soft water means soft, clean skin; soft,silky, more manageable hair. Hard water keeps soap from lathering as it might, working as it should, rinsing off as you want it to. It often leaves an invisible film which blocks pores, attracting and holding dirt and bacteria, causing chapping, itching, and dryness. Hair washed in hard water becomes limp and lifeless; hair coloring frequently does not penetrate evenly. Water that has been softened, however, eliminates these problems. It enables you to use lesser quantities of soap, shampoo, and skin care products, and increases the efficiency with which they work.

Laundry
Doing laundry in water treated by a water softener has proved significantly more effective than doing laundry in hard water, no matter how much soap or detergent is used. The principle is much the same as it is with skin care; hard water combines with the ingredients of soap and detergents to form a dulling curd on clothing, one that holds soil in the fabric, shielding it from removal. It causes clothing to look dingy, grayed, or yellowed, to mat or stiffen with repeated washings. Fibers may deteriorate, wearing out at a faster rate. Nothing looks really clean; nothing is really clean! Soft water, on the other hand, activates the soap or detergent to make a smaller amount (up to 55% less!) work more effectively. Soft water aids the rinsing process, removing dirt and cleaning agents from the fiber and lengthening fiber life. Laundry washed in soft water will be brighter, cleaner, and softer!

Dishwashing
Here, too, the cleaning agents combine with the minerals in hardwater to form a dulling film. A water softener will make dishes and glassware shine - hard water spots are eliminated. And you use only half the amount of detergent or soap hard water requires.

Housecleaning
Studies have proven that a water softener can cut the time required for housecleaning from almost 4 hours to less than 2 1/2 hours! With soft water, a quick rinse or once over wiping cleans sinks, tubs, shower tiles, and plumbing fixtures - no more hard water soap scum to scour and scrub (no more harsh chemicals, either). Floors, windows, and woodwork clean better with soft water, too.

Plumbing and Appliances
Hard water has an obvious adverse effect on appliances and plumbing systems. It's easiest to see as the rock-hard scale forms on shower heads, faucets, and humidifiers, but it also builds up rapidly in dishwashers, clothes washers, pipes, and water heaters, decreasing their life. Water heaters can consume up to 22% less energy with soft water than with hard water! Treat your plumbing and appliances to an easy life with the addition of an Excalibur Water Softener.

Commercial Project: Collective Arts Brewery
Water Filtration System for Collective Arts Brewery This system was developed to treat feedstock water for an Ontario-based brewer.  The brewery, located in an urban area, uses water from the municipal water supply as feedstock to the brewing process. Excalibur's Preprocess Water Treatment Solution Excalibur Water systems used their pre-engineered sixplex progressive flow water activated charcoal filter to handle varying capacity requirements and enhance reliability.  The filter removes VOCs from the water (including chlorine) for neutral-tasting, odour-free water.      
Industrial Project: Kubota Manufacturing Plant
Water Filtration System for Local Kubota Plant This system was developed to treat feedstock water for a Kubota manufacturing plant. The plant used the municipal water supply for feedstock and the municipal sewer system to dispose of postprocess water. The municipal water supply was hard, tainted by chemicals (particularly chlorine used for disinfection), and enough TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) that the wastewater could not meet municipal requierments for total dissolved solids for a plant this size.. Excalibur's Water Treatment Solution Excalibur Water systems created a system using off-the-shelf industrial-grade products - quadplex progressive flow water softener to handle varying capacity requirements and enhance reliability, a triplex progressive flow chemical filter to remove VOCs from the water (including chlorine), and a large Reverse Osmosis unit to reduce TDS in the input water. The chemical filter uses high purity carbon granules to remove organics (adsorption) and residual disinfectants (chemical reduction). The Reverse Osmosis system reduces TDS in the water to less than 5 ppm, which provided enough headroom for the plant to meet local environmental requirements.    
Excalibur's Cooling Tower Side Stream Filters are available in multiple configurations to enhance reliabilty and resilience, and provide very high water filtration capacity. Read more here.
Excalibur Water Systems manufactures and sells a variety of water treatment products for industrial use:  water softeners, reverse osmosis systems and dealkalizers are only part of our product portfilio.  Click the link in the title above to read more.
Without the proper water treatment technology in place, a steam boiler quickly changes from a critical part of an industrial process to a pile of scrap.  Excalibur water softeners and water conditioners remove the minerals that cause scale from the water entering the boiler.
A car wash spot-free rinse starts with the right water.  Excalibur's line of commercial reverse osmosis systems remove the minerals that form spots when car wash rinse water evaporates, and operate at up to 430 gallons per minute.
