The Brine Tank
The water softener`s brine solution begins in a separate tank next to the next softener called a brine tank. Salt is specially formulated for the ion exchange process and to keep the resin clean. The salt mixes with water to create a brine solution that’s flushed through the resin during regeneration.
Float Tube: The brine well is a cylindrical barrier that keep the salt or potassium chloride away from the safety float and air check valve, allowing them to operate without any obstructions.
Float Tube Assembly: A safety float inside the brine tank to ensure that salt water does not overflow into the floor if the injectors on the control valve get blocked up.
Salt Grid Base: A grid plate, place at the bottom of the brine tank, acts as a tool to displace the water. This allows more water to flow into the brine tank so that enough brine solution is available during the regeneration process.
Brine tank used to hold solutions for regeneration of resins. Common applications include:
- Water Softening Resin
- Nitrate Removal Resin
- Tannin Removal Resin
