FUNDAMENTALS OF WATER SOFTENING
“Hard water explained”
As rain falls through the atmosphere, it often absorbs traces of acidic gases from the air (carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide, etc.). When the water reaches the ground, it percolates through the soil and dissolves certain soil components. The greater the acidity of the rain water, the more soil material dissolved. Ground waters (wells, springs) and surface waters (rivers, lakes, and oceans) contain a certain amount of dissolved matter. Many of these substances are chemical compounds, which can dissolve in water to form electrically charged particles called ions.
Two of the most commonly occurring ions in natural waters are calcium and magnesium. Both are positively charged ions called cations, and each carries two unit charges. The presence of these two minerals in natural water causes “hardness”, which produces a scum or curd with soap, and forms a hard scale in piping and water heaters. Other cations present in natural waters may include sodium, potassium, iron and other metallic components, but primarily calcium and magnesium make water “hard”.
- Siliphos +SSG33 is a descaling agent used to protect equipment against scaling.
- Various containers are used for different applications.
- Siliphos +SSG33 is packed in 5kg bags.
- 1kg treats 100,000 Liters of water.
- Siliphos +SSG33 dissolves slowly in water and has to be replenished from time to time.
- Prevents scaling on geyser elements, shower heads, nozzles and pipelines. Prevents staining of shower glass doors and tiles.
