Extending Resin Life

Water softener resin is extremely porous, which is beneficial because it allows for more surface area to capture calcium and other metals in source water. Surprisingly, 99% of ion exchange actually happens in the interior of the bead. Resin beads, ranging in size from 16 to 50 mesh, are abused daily during the backwash process and by contaminants in the source water. Resin could last much longer in these hostile environments with a few fairly inexpensive solutions.

Protecting Ion Exchange Resins From Suspended Solids

Ion exchange resins used in softening, anion or deionization applications are designed to remove certain ionized substances from water. The resin beads typically range in size from 16 to 50 mesh (1.2 to 0.3 mm) and although they are designed for the removal of dissolved ions, they can become a very effective filter media.

In some specialty applications (e.g., condensate polishing) resins are used as much for their filtration properties as for their ion exchange characteristics. For the most part, however, it is a good idea to keep the resin bed free of suspended particles.
