Fiberglass Tank, Top Mount Water Softeners, including:

  1. DEWTEX-EFT – Series – single, dual or triplex units, time clock or meter initiated systems for commercial and light industrial applications.
  2. DEWTEX-EDT – Series – dual tank, meter demand systems for light commercial and industrial applications.
  3. DEWTEX-EHW – Series – single vessel, time clock initiated systems for hot water dishwasher applications in restaurants.


Why use an Industrial Water Softener?

Calcium and magnesium are hard scale forming minerals that build up on piping, heat exchangers, water heaters, boilers, condenser and any steam related equipment. This buildup results in costly repairs, increased energy consumption, plugged heat exchangers and boiler tubes. The service life of linens, clothing, appliances and fixtures is greatly reduced due to these hard minerals. For laundry and dishwashing, the use of a water softener will significantly reduce the amount of soaps and detergents, resulting in reduced operating expenses.

Applications for Industrial Water Softeners

The following facilities are examples of ideal applications for water softening equipment:

  • Apartments/Condominiums
  • Car Washes
  • Boiler Feedwater
  • Hospitals and Hotels
  • Laundries
  • Manufacturing Plants
  • Office Complexes
  • Institutions
  • Food Processing Plants
