Water Softener Plant

Water Softener Plant in Bangladesh

To remove total hardness generally use water softener plant in Bangladesh . It is mainly used to remove calcium and magnesium ions in water that call total hardness. So, water softener plant is essential equipment at industry in Bangladesh. It also widely using at domestic purpose where found high hardness. A water softener plant requires to use sodium chloride. It knows as salt which applicable for regeneration for softener resin. So, sodium chloride, the essential element of softener plant that, work for exchange the unexpected minerals. In prospect on Bangladesh water softener plant (WSP) have found to work about 25-30 years. So, Heron WSP claim high quality and trouble-free service.

Working principle of Water Softener Plant 

In Bangladesh prospect Water Softener plant require to best quality higher exchange capacity resin. Because the hardness of water is mainly formed and expressed by calcium and magnesium, cation exchange resin (water softener) is generally used to replace Ca2 + and Mg2 + (the main component of scale formation) in water. With the increase of Ca2 + and Mg2 + in the resin, the efficiency of removing Ca2 + and Mg2 + by resin gradually decreases. When the resin of water softener plant absorbs a certain amount of calcium and magnesium ions, it must regenerate. The regeneration process is to wash the resin layer with salt water in the salt tank, replace the hardness ions on the resin, and discharge the regenerated waste liquid out of the tank, so that the resin can restore the softening exchange function. The basis Water Softener Plant in Bangladesh, the hardness of water is mainly formed by calcium and magnesium and expressed by sodium ion exchange, the principle of softening treatment is to exchange the hardness components Ca2 + and Mg2 + in the water with Na + in the resin by passing the raw water through sodium type cation exchange resin, so as to absorb Ca2 + and Mg2 + in the water and soften the water.

Application of Water Softener Plant in Bangladesh

Design Water softener Plant in Bangladesh is depending on water characteristic in Bangladesh. Choose different soft water treatment equipment for different applications

      • Heating
      • Make up water for cooling
      • Process water
      • Steam boiler
      • Iron and steel smelting
      • Chemical and pharmaceutical industry
      • System water consumption time required by the industry

  • Capacity of Water Softer Plant can be 250liter per hour to up to customer’s requirement. Water consumption per hour, average value and peak value. The equipment can select according to the water supply time. So, If continuous water supply is not required, single valve and single tank equipment can be selected; if continuous water supply is required, double bed centralized control or double control double bed series softened water treatment device can be selected.


There are five processes:

  • operation (sometimes called water production, the same below), backwashing, salt absorption (regeneration), slow flushing (replacement) and fast flushing. So, all processes of different softened water equipment are very close, but due to different actual processes or control needs, there may be some additional processes. So, Any softened water equipment based on sodium ion exchange develops on the basis of these five processes (among them, automatic softened water equipment will increase brine reinjection process).
  • Backwashing: So, after working for a period of time, the equipment will intercept a lot of pollutants from raw water on the top of the resin. So,  After removing these pollutants, So, the ion exchange resin can be completely exposed, and the regeneration effect can be guaranteed. So, The backwashing process is that water washes in from the bottom of the resin and flows out from the top, so that the dirt intercepted from the top can wash away. This process usually takes about 5-15 minutes.
  • Salt absorption (regeneration): in the process of injecting salt water into resin tank, So, the traditional equipment uses salt pump to inject salt water, and the fully automatic equipment uses special built-in injector to suck salt water (as long as the water inlet has a certain pressure). So, in the actual working process, the regeneration effect of salt water flowing through the resin at a slow speed is better than that of soaking the resin with salt water alone. Therefore, the method of salt water flowing through the resin at a slow speed adopte for the regeneration of softened water equipment, which generally takes about 30 minutes. The actual time affects the amount of salt used.


  • Slow flushing (replacement): after the salt water flows through the resin, the process of slowly flushing all the salt in the resin with raw water at the same flow rate call slow flushing. Because a large number of calcium and magnesium ions on the functional groups are still exchanged by sodium ions in this flushing process, according to practical experience, this process is the main process of regeneration, so many people call this process replacement. This process is generally the same as salt absorption time, that is, about 30 minutes.
  • Fast flushing: in order to thoroughly flush the residual salt, So, the resin should flush with raw water at a flow rate close to the actual work. So, The final effluent of this process should be soft water up to the standard. Generally, the fast flushing process is 5-15 minutes.
