When to opt for liquid salt for water softening?
Some companies require a lot of softened water in their production processes. In that case, replenishing and checking water softening systems quickly becomes quite a chore. A chore that takes staff a lot of time and energy, as they are often required to lug around heavy bags of salt. Liquid salt for water softening does away with these manual and ergonomically straining tasks.
Water softening systems use brine, a solution that consists of salt and water. Users can make their own brine by pouring salt tablets into the water softening system’s salt tank. The salt dissolves and the brine regenerates the resins in the water softening system which remove the calcium from the water. Replenishing the water softening systems can prove to be a job that requires a fair amount of muscle, as the salt for water softening is usually supplied in 25 kg bags.
But the added amount of work doesn’t stop there. Softening water also means checking salt stocks, ordering in extra supplies, unloading trucks and stacking the pallets in the warehouse. All in all, a lot of time goes into processing salt for water softening.
Opting for liquid salt for water softening instead of traditional salt for water softening however means substantial savings on production costs. Liquid salt for water softening is delivered directly to the production site and is automatically routed to the water softening systems. Without involving a single manual action from staff. And an end to lugging and lifting heavy bags.
