Product Announcement from Res-Kem LLC
Res-Kem FT-Series Water Softeners are standardized, single, dual, or multiple tank systems with time clock or meter initiated regeneration for commercial and industrial applications to remove water hardness. Fully automatic, brass constructed, multi-port valves with adjustable regeneration cycles control softeners. Electronic controls are optional. Single unit flow rates up to 120 gpm. Using multiple units flow rates are unlimited.
Res-Kem FT Water Softeners are designed to provide continuous soft water 24 hours per day for dual units. Single units are a cost-effective way to provide soft water where demand is intermittent. For either design, the only operator attention needed is to put salt in the brine tank.
Economical and efficient, the heart of the Res-Kem FT-Series Water Softener is the Pentair Fleck 2750, 2850, and 2900, all brass control valve. With a meter initiated, twin tank alternating design, one tank is in service while the second is held in stand-by. These rugged Fleck control valves provide a low maintenance, high flow rate, and quality system able to meet the most demanding needs.

Why use a Water Softener?
Calcium and magnesium are hard scale forming minerals that build up on piping, heat exchangers, water heaters, boilers, and any steam equipment. This buildup results in costly repairs, increased energy consumption, plugged heat exchangers and boiler tubes. Also, hardness greatly reduces the service life of linens, clothing, appliances, and plumbing fixtures.
The following facilities are examples of ideal applications for water softening equipment:
- Office Complexes
- Car Washes
- Light Manufacturing Plants
- Large Homes
- Boiler Pretreatment
