Features & Information

SPECTRUM Softening Resin is specially formulated to target scale-forming ions, such as calcium and magnesium. Designed for use in commercial and industrial water softening systems.


What is SPECTRUM SRSO, and what is its primary function?

SPECTRUM SRSO is a gel-type sulfonated polystyrene cation resin. Its primary function is to remove hardness ions (calcium and magnesium) from water by exchanging them with sodium ions, thereby softening the water.

What are the typical applications for SPECTRUM SRSO resin?

SPECTRUM SRSO resin is designed for both commercial and industrial water softening applications. It can be used in pressure vessels for larger-scale applications and in empty cartridge shells for smaller, point-of-use applications.

What are the benefits of using SPECTRUM SRSO resin for water softening?

SPECTRUM SRSO resin offers several advantages, including high bead integrity, excellent chemical and physical stability, and very low extractable content. These properties make it ideal for both general and sensitive/critical water softening applications.

How does SPECTRUM SRSO resin remove hardness ions from water?

SPECTRUM SRSO resin operates through a process called ion exchange. It releases sodium ions into the water and captures calcium and magnesium ions, effectively softening the water by reducing its hardness. The regeneration process involves passing a sodium chloride (salt) solution through the resin bed to replace the captured hardness ions (calcium and magnesium) with sodium ions.
