industrial water softeners
What does a water softener do?
A water softener removes the hard calcium and magnesium elements from the water by substituting soft sodium and flushing the hard elements to the waste system. Water softening uses sodium chloride salt pellets for this efficient process. 90% of all cotton gins require only water softening to control scale. For the remaining 10% who need reverse osmosis treatment, water softening is recommended for the membrane inlet feed. A water softener should always be your first line of defense in a water heater or boiler application.
How much does it cost to operate?
Among gins surveyed, salt costs amounted to less than $5.50 per day and additional water usage of 10% - 35% depending on water quality.

Hard Facts about Hard Water:
- The average price of basic Humidaire reconditioning is $10,000-$12,000.
- The average Humidaire performance reduction from scale is 30% when untreated.
- The average maintenance time spent cleaning Humidaire Unit scale during a gin season is 20 hours with untreated water and requires hazardous materials.
