Ion Exchange

Ion exchange can be used in a variety of applications to remove specific ions from a water source or remove all the dissolved minerals and salts. Ion exchange resins work by exchanging dissolved minerals for other ions in a reversible reaction. In the case of a water softener, calcium and magnesium are exchanged for sodium ions but none of the anions are removed. In a demineralisation plant all the cations are changed for hydrogen and all the anions for hydroxyl ions.
CONESEP® Technology
The CONESEP® technology isolates and transfers ion exchange resins from the condensate polishing unit to external vessels for separation and regeneration.
MGR MOVEX™ Technology
With the MGR MOVEX™ system, exhausted ion exchange resins are moved into special vessels where a high degree of regeneration without contamination is possible.
Mixed Bed Internal Regeneration
Mixed bed polishing is a well understood ion-exchange based polishing technology and comprises a resin bed of cation and anion resins, intimately mixed.
