Water and power have been the core of ML Ball's business since our founding.  Among the products that we provide our clients are demineralizers & deaerators.

Demineralization of water is one of the most practical and common methods used to remove dissolved contaminates.   Dissolved impurities in power plant fluid systems can generate corrosion problems and decrease efficiency due to fouled heat transfer surfaces.   Demineralizers (also called ion-exchangers) are used to hold ion exchange resins and transport water through them.   Ion exchangers are generally classified into two groups: single-bed ion exchangers and mixed-bed ion exchangers.

A demineralizer is basically a cylindrical tank with connections at the top for water inlet and resin addition, and connections at the bottom for the water outlet.   The resin can usually be changed out through a connection at the bottom of the tank.   The resin beads are kept in the demineralizer by upper and lower retention elements, which are strainers with a mesh size smaller then the resin beads

The water to be purified enters the top at a set flow rate, flows down through the resin beads where the flow path causes a physical filter effect as well as a chemical ion exchange.   The chemistry of the resin exchange is explained in detail in the Chemistry Fundamentals Handbook.

For information and pricing for a demineralizer or deaerator please contact either your regional ML Ball representative or our corporate office.
