The Atlantis XR2 Series Residential Water Softeners are suitable for applications up to 72,000 grains of hardness removal capacity at peak flow rates of up to 21 gpm depending on the system selected.
Operation of The Softener
Hard water contains dissolved minerals in the form of Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg). Removal of these minerals is accomplished by softening the water through an ion exchange process. As water flows through the mineral tank, the dissolved minerals become attached onto and inside the resin. Over a period of time the resin will become saturated with contaminants, and the softener will require regeneration using a sodium or potassium brine solution.
Softening Media – Hydrolyte 525-1
The exchange media is a high quality, FDA certified, commercial grade strong acid softener (Cation) resin in the sodium form (potassium form is available at no extra cost) with a very high whole bead count, no color throw, physically hard, and is moderately chlorine resistant. The media combines high operating capacity with excellent chemical and physical stability for a dependable life when properly maintained.
Regeneration of the system is initiated by a simplified electronic control timer, which electronically meters softened water flow to the home and makes decisions to regenerate based on water consumption and program settings.
These softener models are controlled electronically. A fully programmable microprocessor controls Inject Pur-Gard, Upflow Brine/Rinse, Backwash, System Protector, Brine Refill and return to service cycles.
A hydraulically balanced, EPDM diaphragm utilizes a composite drivetrain. All parts in the water-way are either stainless steel or composite noryl® materials for a long and reliable service life.
All softener models feature a non-corrosive fiberglass tank, with a one piece thermoplastic inner liner. The tank has a maximum working pressure of 90 psi and a working temperature up to 120°F. The tank is approved by NSF, UL, FDA, and meets WQA Standard S-100. All fiberglass tanks carry a limited lifetime warranty.
An 18 x 33 inch brine tank is included as part of the system. The brine tank is a combination brine maker and salt storage vessel and is made of tough, high-density polyethylene. Larger tanks are available for extra salt storage capacity, if required. Brine tanks 24″ diameter and smaller feature a grid plate for maximum saturation of brine.
Brine refill is automatically controlled by the computer to ensure the same amount of brine for each regeneration. The Brine System has a float and safety valve shut-off, which minimizes the chance of overflowing the brine tank. All units are equipped with an air check.
Pur-Gard & Pur-Gard Plus
A high-efficiency Pur-Gard injector & reservoir is included with this system to ensure peak performance and maximum protection from inorganic metals and minerals while maximizing system efficiency.
