Corrosion Prevention

Dealkalization reduces the alkalinity of water, which helps to prevent corrosion in boilers, cooling towers, and piping systems. Lower alkalinity levels minimize the formation of corrosive substances, extending the lifespan of equipment and reducing maintenance costs.


Improved Water Quality

By removing bicarbonates and carbonates, dealkalization enhances the overall quality of water. This is particularly important for industries that require high-purity water, such as food and beverage production, pharmaceuticals, and electronics manufacturing, ensuring consistent product quality.


Increased Efficiency

Dealkalized water reduces the scaling and fouling potential in water systems. This improves the efficiency of heat exchange processes in boilers and cooling systems, leading to lower energy consumption and operational costs.


Regulation Compliance

Many industries have strict water quality standards and regulations. Dealkalization helps businesses meet these regulatory requirements by providing water that complies with the necessary quality parameters, avoiding potential fines and legal issues.

Commercial water dealkalization reduces water alkalinity by removing bicarbonates, carbonates, & hydroxides. High alkalinity causes scaling & corrosion in equipment, increasing costs & lowering efficiency. Dealkalization protects equipment, improves water quality, & enhances efficiency.

A commercial dealkalization system usually employs ion-exchange resins or acid injection. In ion exchange, resins swap chloride ions for bicarbonate and carbonate ions in the water. Acid injection adds a controlled amount of acid (e.g. sulfuric or hydrochloric acid) to neutralize alkalinity, converting bicarbonates and carbonates to carbon dioxide and water for removal.

Benefits include corrosion prevention, improved water quality, increased equipment efficiency, and regulatory compliance. These advantages lead to reduced maintenance costs, extended equipment lifespan, and improved overall operational efficiency.

A water analysis can determine if a dealkalization system is needed due to high alkalinity causing scaling, corrosion, or inefficiencies. Consulting a water treatment specialist can help assess and recommend the appropriate solution.

Maintenance for dealkalization system includes monitoring water quality, regenerating resins (if applicable), checking/replenishing acid levels, and inspecting system components for wear/damage. Skilled water professionals can help ensure proper system maintenance.
