|TYPES OF COMMERCIAL/INDUSTRIAL SYSTEMS
Day Clock Regeneration
- Single tank regeneration, 6, 7, and 12 day regeneration cycles
- Standard regeneration time 2:00am
- Twin tank systems with time clock regeneration. Most common will have staggered regeneration times.
- Twin tank systems will have hard water by-pass. No hard water by-pass systems are available.
- All systems must be designed for (1) day capacity.
- Clock type systems are best for situations where water usage is constant or peak demand days are predictable on the same day each week.
- Twin tank systems are used when high peak flows are needed.
Water Meter Initiated Regeneration
- Basic Metered Systems
- Single tank- single meter-immediate regeneration. No reserve capacity needed.
- Single tank- single meter-delayed regeneration. Hard water by-pass should be at low water usage time. One day reserve capacity required.
- Two tanks-two meters. Both units in service at same time. One unit regenerates, one unit locked out. Delayed or immediate regeneration, hard water or no hard water by-pass. Delayed should have one day reserve capacity.
- Two tanks- one meter. Both units in service. Once meter zeroes out, unit (1) regenerates , then unit (2) regenerates. Delayed or immediate regeneration, hard water or no hard water by-pass. Delayed should have one day reserve capacity.
- Two tanks- one meter, twin alternating. One unit in service, the other unit on stand-by. Standard set up is immediate regeneration with no hard water by-pass. This system can be adapted to allow for tri-plex or quadplex.
- Metered systems are best for erratic or unpredictable water usage situations. Twin alternating systems are used where soft water must be available at all times. Twin systems where both units are in service at same time are best used when high peak flows are needed.
