Duplex water softeners supply soft water
24hrs a day, with no interruptions, with regenerations directly
linked to the amount of water used, there is no 'outage' time
for hard water, and salt use is kept to a minimum.
A traditional commercial single tank softener
has to be considerably larger than actually required to accommodate
peak water demand. When a single tank softener regenerates,
it can only provide hard water during the regeneration, whereas,
the Duplex unit would simply switch to the standby softener
to ensure a continuous supply of soft water.
Duplex softeners have two softening vessels sharing the same
salt tank. These two vessels are connected by a single control
valve with a built in water meter.
One vessel supplies soft water whilst the
other remains on standby. When the required amount of soft
water has been reached this vessel begins an automatic regeneration
with soft water then supplied from the previous standby vessel.
This role is then reversed when the next regeneration is due.
This way there is a continuous supply of soft water at all
With our Duplex softeners using a wet brine
system, the regenerations can be more frequent ensuring an
even greater output of soft water from a smaller softener.
The only maintenance necessary is to ensure the salt tank
is kept full of tablet
