Ion exchange can be used to avoid scale buildup and corrosion in reverse osmosis membrane systems. Consolidated Water Solutions offers a comprehensive line of ion exchange resins for many applications, including simple industrial softening, production of ultrapure water, sweetener purification, pharmaceutics, and metal recovery (mining).
How Does Ion Exchange Work?
Ion exchange is a water treatment process where unwanted dissolved ions are exchanged for other ions with a similar charge. The use of ion exchange is common in power plants to produce ultrapure boiler feed water and steam to avoid scale buildup and corrosion. This improves the efficiency, operating reliability, and lifetime of power plants, in addition to other commercial industries.
