Ion Exchangers

ProFilco offers ion exchangers for brine softening in the chlor alkali industry.

With both filter and brine softener systems installed by one supplier, ProFilco offers single source responsibility preventing any potential incompatibility. Most of our brine filters and brine softeners are operated by a common PLC control system.

ProFilco can supply dilution or dosing systems for regeneration chemicals and resin strainers as well.

Depending on the type of cells and salt used to produce brine, purification consists of the following steps:

  1. Saturation
  2. Precipitation
  3. Suspended solids separation
  4. Brine softening with ion exchangers

A typical brine softener system consists of three columns operated through
a ‘merry go round’ system.
