Base Exchange Water Softeners
Water treatment is essential in order to achieve good washing results. It will reduce detergent consumption to a minimum and help prevent failure of heating elements and rinse jet blockages, caused by the formation of calcium carbonate (lime scale) deposits. Failure to install a water softener where appropriate can affect the machine warranty terms. Wherever the total hardness of the water exceeds 7° Clark (100 ppm), a base exchange water softener is recommended for all warewashing machines.
