Cleaver-Brooks Water Treatment line includes water softeners that remove water hardness through ion exchange preventing scale buildup on heat transfer surfaces while maintaining peak boiler efficiency.

Removing hardness also reduces the need for expensive chemical treatment to control scale. Water softeners are available in package design for virtually any commercial or industrial application. A water softener is recommended whenever raw hardness exceeds 1 ppm. Water softeners are available for boilers of all sizes, including multiple boiler applications, steam or hot water. Models SMR and FMR Available in single-, twin- or triplex tank designs and include resin tank(s), brine tank, face-piping, diaphragm valve nest and cycle controller. They feature carbon steel tanks with epoxy lined interiors and utilizes water-activated diaphragm valves and an electronic controller.

Size range: From 15,000 to 1,200,000 grains exchange capacity
Use: Steam and hot water applications

Dealkalizers can remove more than 90% of the bicarbonate alkalinity in a softened water supply. High alkalinity contributes to boiler foaming and carryover as well as excessive blowoff rates. Besides improving water chemistry in the boiler, lowering alkalinity reduces formation of carbon dioxide in the system, which is the major cause of condensate piping corrosion. For steam and hot water applications.

Size range: From 10,000 to 1,000,000 grains capacity
Use: Steam and hot water applications
Flow rates: from 2 to 500 gpm
