Water Softeners

Alamo Water Softeners

Alamo Brand® pre-engineered commercial water soft- eners are listed up to 1,200,000 grains of hardness removal at peak flow rates up to 600 gpm.

Operation of Softener: Removal of dissolved minerals in the form of Calcium, Magnesium, and Iron, is accomplished by the ion exchange process. As the dissolved minerals become attached to the resin and exhaust its ability to provide soft water, the system will automatically regenerate the resin using a brine solution from a separate (brine) tank.

Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic Tank: Most models use a non-corroding fiberglass wrapped Resin Tank with a one piece thermoplastic inner liner. The tank has a maximum working pressure of 150 psi and a working temperature up to 120°F. The tank is listed by NSF, UL, and meets WQA Standard S-100, and FDA standards. Tank warranty is 5 years.

Polybond Lined Steel Tank: Some models feature our exclusive Polybond steel tank with carbon steel and inert nonleachable virgin polyethylene 30 mil in- terior lining. Exterior coating is 7 mil epoxy mastic enamel coating. The tank has a maximum working pressure of 100 psi and a working temperature up to 100°F.

Epoxy Lined Steel Tank: Some models have epoxy lining and primed exterior.

Softening Media: The exchange media is a high quality strong acid cation resin in the sodium form with a very high whole bead count, no color throw, physically hard, and is chlorine resistant. The media combines high operating capacity with excellent chemical and physical stability for long dependable life.

Control Valve Selection: Some sequence control valves operate automatically on commands from a companion electro-mechanical controller. Valves are motor-driven and perform in the toughest applications. Other valves operate wth a companion electronic (microprocessor) controller. Some valves are Noryl ® plastic and others are brass.

Choice of Controllers: Regeneration cycle can be initiated by time-clock or optional meter. The 5 cycle timer delivers a controlled upflow backwash, downflow brining and slow rinse, rapid rinse, brine refill, and downflow service.

BrineTank: The brine tank is a combination brine maker and salt storage vessel and is made of tough, high density polyethylene. Brine tanks feature a grid plate for maximum saturation of brine. Brine System: Brine refill is automatically controlled by the timer/controller, to provide the correct amount of brine for each regeneration. Float and safety valve shut-off prevent overflow. All units are equipped with an air check.
