Premium Softening Resin

Calculated at checkout

Product Description

This Cation resin is a high capacity, conventional gel polystyrene strong acid cation exchange resin designed for use in residential or industrial water softening equipment. Cation resin in sodium form removes hardness ions such as calcium and magnesium by replacing
them with sodium. When the resin bed is exhausted the hardness ions begin to pass through the bed. Functionality is returned by regeneration with concentrated sodium or potassium chloride solution. The capacity obtained depends largely on the amount of salt used
in the regeneration. Typically 15 lbs. of chemical per ft3 is used to obtain maximum capacity of up to 33,000 grains per ft3
