Features & Information

EWS units incorporate Crystalite, an advanced Template Assisted Crystallisation (TAC) media, to provide the first effective chemical-free scale prevention method.


What is water softening, and why is it necessary?

Water softening is the process of removing minerals like calcium and magnesium from hard water. It’s necessary because hard water can cause limescale buildup in pipes and appliances, reduce soap’s effectiveness, and lead to other issues like dry skin and dull hair.

Is softened water safe to drink?

Softened water is safe to drink, but it may have a slightly elevated sodium or potassium content due to the ion exchange process. If you’re on a sodium-restricted diet, please take this into consideration.

What is Crystalite and how does it work in EWS units?

Crystalite is an advanced Template Assisted Crystallisation (TAC) media used in EWS units. It provides a chemical-free method to prevent scale formation in water. Through a catalytic reaction, Crystalite converts hardness-causing minerals into non-scaling crystals (soft scale) on the resin surface, which are then released into the water.

Can EWS units with Crystalite be used in both residential and commercial settings?

Yes, EWS units with Crystalite technology are suitable for both residential and commercial applications. They can effectively prevent scale buildup in various water systems, including homes, restaurants, and industrial facilities.
