Water for washing. WDetergents added to the water used in the actual washing process usually contain surfactants, complex binding agents, enzymes, bleaches and smell corrigents. Surfactants and water dissolve and remove dirt. Water hardness must be removed if it is to be right for washing. Complex chemical substances bind calcium in water to some extent, but the best solution is to soften water using a water softening system. In the areas where hard water is predominant, surfactant consumption is great.
The uses of water softened through ion exchange include:
- reducing detergent consumption and thereby minimizing the impact on the environment,
- protecting heating elements against damage caused by calcium precipitation,
- preventing downtimes connected with maintenance or repair of damaged heating elements,
- preventing phosphate deposits forming from calcium soap precipitation,
- removing water hardness that makes the washing process difficult to perform.
