Vessel Recharge – Ion Exchange

EXCHANGE CARTRIDGES for PROCESS APPLICATIONS
 
For CNC/finished washing machines:
 

    High quality finished components frequently need to be degreased in water baths using a variety of chemicals and high quality rinse waters.

 

    Throughout the UK the water quality varies dramatically; from low hardness waters which have a tendency to contain high levels of organics which will both discolour and taint your product and affect the chemical detergent/degreaser to high hardness water which leave a scum on the metal surface.

 

    In addition should heat be applied the contaminants within the water get baked onto the hot surfaces either as scale or a brown scum.

 

    All UK drinking water contain chlorine to prevent bacterial growth however this can have an adverse effect on stainless steel and some other alloys.

 

    PWEL offer a range of exchange cylinders to counteract the effects of water quality variances.

 

    In soft water areas specific combinations of ion exchange and other medias are used to remove any remaining minerals, organics, suspended solids and chlorine.

 

    In hard water areas ion exchange media is used to remove the minerals, and additional filtration is used to remove the suspended matter and chlorine/chloramines.

 

    In addition there is a beneficial side effect to this; the filter cartridges increase the life of the washing machine themselves.  In hard water areas scale on the heating element is virtually eliminated and the machine is much cleaner. Repairs and service visits will be less frequent and reliability is increased.

 

    In soft waters the organics tend to get burnt onto the hot surfaces, but once removed then the machine is cleaner for longer.

 

    The result is less down-time to clean the machine, better quality of finished product.

 

    Installation is simple requiring the filter to be installed on the existing inlet water pipe, between the water supply and the machine, using the provided installation kit.

 

EXCHANGE CARTRIDGES for COMMERCIAL KITCHENS/COFFEE SHOPS
 
For Vending/Drinks Machines/dish & glass washers/steam ovens:
 
Vending and drinks machines:
 

    The main constituent of drinks from a vending machine is water. Throughout the UK the water quality varies dramatically; from low hardness waters which have a tendency to contain high levels of organics which will both discolour and taint your dispensed product to high hardness water which leave a scum on the surface and can affect the taste.

 

    In addition all drinking waters contain chlorine to prevent bacterial growth but this can react in the cooking process to produce a ‘TCP’ like taste.

 

    As soon as heat is applied to the water the contaminants within the water get baked onto the hot surfaces either as scale or a brown scum.

Dish and Glass washing machines
 

    These are invariably fitted with a water softener, which is why they require salt. But they still require rinse aid to get the crockery and glass clean.  However often this isn’t enough and no amount of rinse aid is going to achieve the desired effect.

Steam Ovens
 

    They have fine steam jets which heat the product. These jets become blocked without the proper water treatment leading to incorrect heating and additional mechanical servicing/cleaning.

 

    PWEL offer a range of exchange cylinders to counteract the effects of water quality variances.

 

    In soft water areas specific media is used to remove any organics and discolouration.

 

    In hard water areas ion exchange media is used to reduce the hardness which also improves the flavour of the drink.

 

    In all cases a filter is recommended to remove any chlorine/chloramines from the water

 

    In addition there is a beneficial side effect to this; the filter cartridges increase the life of the components in within the machine.  In hard water areas scale on the heating element is virtually eliminated and the machine is much cleaner. Repairs and service visits will be less frequent and reliability is increased.

 

    In soft waters the organics tend to get burnt onto the hot surfaces, but once removed then the machine is cleaner for longer.

 

    The result is less down-time to clean the machine, better quality of food/drink/glass ware and satisfied customers.

 

    Installation is simple requiring the filter to be installed on the existing inlet water pipe, between the water supply and the machine, using the provided installation kit.
