Softcontrol Data Water Hardness Monitoring

For certain processes, a low water hardness is required. To achieve this, the soft water is blended with the raw water. The continuous monitoring of the water hardness behind a blending system with Softcontrol-V / UE is thus of great importance.

In contrast to conventional water monitoring devices Softcontrol-V/UE operates with a selective sensor for calcium and magnesium ions on potentiometric method basis.

The monitored upper threshold value can be parameterised at the device. With exceeding of this threshold value, alarm will be triggered by a contact. Also an alarm delay is parameterisable individually. Measurement values and status information can be stored on an integrated USB flash drive.

  • Softcontrol-V/UE blend can be installed in every blending system for water.

  • No reagents or indicators necessary, making the device environmental friendly and cost-effective.

  • Except for the occasional sensor exchange Softcontrol V-UE Blend is almost maintenance free.
