Dealkalizers



Weekly acidic cation exchanger

Through dealkalization, the hardness and the bicarbonate content of the water are reduced, thus typically reducing the salt content in the water by approximately 75%. Used for production of boiler water and district heating water as well as process water in breweries. 

Advantages and references
The need for blowdown of the boiler is considerably reduced compared to the use of softened water solely as boiler feedwater. If the water composition is suited for dealkalization, the method is suitable for large boilers and it is inexpensive in operation. When brewing, the bicarbonate content is important. This can be adjusted by mixing dealkalized water and raw water. 

Plant description
Flow rates for standard modules: 1-50 m³/h. The plants are produced as one-tank and two-tank plants. The tanks are of steel coated with polypropylene. A complete plant for production of boiler feedwater typically comprises dealkalizer, CO2 deaerator, and softening plant. 

TYPE DCM/DCMH

Flow rate: 1.5-14 m³/h per module.
One-tank and two-tank plants, frame-mounted.



TYPE DCTFA

Idropan supplies plants with a flow rate of up to 50 m³/h.
The plants have a separate regeneration unit.
