The main purpose of the Water Softening Grade of salt, like the name suggests, is to soften the water. The salt contains ion-exchange resins that help soften the water and make it useable in different machines in different industries.
This grade of salt is used to soften the water before it is used in boilers and various other industrial, residential and commercial applications. Water softeners are filled with ion-exchange resins that soften the water. With time, the resins exhaust and need to be re-generated using salt brines. The quality of the salt plays an important part here as well, since low quality salt can spoil the plant and the resins. The water softening technicians know that poor quality of salt can even plug the valves and pipes other than making the resins being worn out before its stipulated time. It has also been observed that salt with very high residues of Sulphates have proven to be detrimental for the equipment.
Since quality is given importance at Hub-Pak, the 5 different grades of water softening salt are guaranteed to work for this application. The salt ensures that Sulphate remains low and the resins have a longer life and do not exhaust quickly.
