"SIMPLEX™ ION EXCHANGE REGENERATION SYSTEMS

REGENERATION MODULES WITH POWER PURGE™ WASTE MINIMIZATION


Remco Engineering offers a compact, wall mounted, microprocessor controlled regeneration system for regenerating ion exchange columns. The simplex™ regeneration modules are designed to regenerate anion, cation and chelated resins according to manufacturers specifications. These systems feature fully automated regeneration cycles with resettable timing cycles.

Featuring our own trademarked rinse water conservation features know as Power Purge™where the columns are emptied after each process cycle to minimize regenerant dilution and facilitate transportation of the column. These systems can also segregate spent regenerant from rinse water to make recovery and/or treatment easier.

Another feature that is available as an option is the NO-FAIL regeneration. This feature uses flow sensors on the regenerant lines to measure the actual amount of acid and caustic added to the resin to insure a complete regeneration. If the system takes more time than it should, an alarm sounds for an operator to investigate the problem and the cycle is restarted from where it stopped.

These compact systems are wall mounted and can regenerate columns of any size. For practical reasons, only portable columns up to 10 cu. ft are recommended. For fixed installations, any size column can be regenerated. We can mount the system to make it portable so you can regenerated larger columns at different locations or move the regeneration system from one building or site to the next.

System configurations available:

  1. Fixed system is mounted to a wall. Premixed regenerant is pump fed from customer supplied tanks. Regenerant is premixed to between 6% and 8% concentration. The system monitors regenerant levels in the tanks (inputs provided for level controls).
  2. Also a wall mounted unit. Injectors mix caustic and acid from drums. NO-FAIL option is suggested as injectors and lines can plug when fed from drums.
  3. Portable unit with NO-FAIL option for eductor mixing from drum feed. System is mounted on a light weight fiberglass skid which can be wheel mounted or moved by a forklift from one location to another. System is approximately 4 feel long by 18 inches wide by 4 feet high
  4. Customer specified configurations are also available.

    The capacity of these systems is limited by the total regeneration time required for each different column size. Small columns can be regenerated in a couple of hours whereas larger columns can take 4 or more hours for a complete regeneration cycle.

    These systems feature:

    • Fully automatic regeneration for 1 to 45 cubic foot columns.
    • Manual override.
    • POWER PURGE™, air assisted draining of column after rinsing and regeneration cycle.
    • Quick disconnect fitting for interfacing columns.
    • All valves and fittings included.
    • Eductor for regenerant feed (50% caustic or 37% HCl or 50% Sulfuric acid)
    • Preprogrammed low rinse water use cycles.

    The system has all of the valves, fittings and eductors to regenerate chelated resins, or both resins from an anion/cation DI system. All functions are preprogrammed so operator involvement is minimal. Pressing the "MENU" button on the control panel brings up an extensive menu that allows various cycles to be selected as well as full manual control of the regeneration if desired. A complete timer and counter submenu allows custom programming functions in a low cost system. A 110v outlet(s) is supplied for interfacing a recirculation pump(s) should you wish to recirculate regenerant.

    Customer facility requirements are:

    1. 110 v. power (5 amps) for control power and regenerant pump on chelated systems
    2. Tanks for rinse water and spent regenerant (50-500 gallons each depending on column size)
    3. 80 psi regulated, clean air
    4. Concentrated regenerant tank on chelated systems
    5. DI systems need DI water for rinsing after regeneration

    The system is customer mounted on a wall and include Nema 4x pushbuttons and enclosure for long life in corrosive environments.

    When used with the P-SIX™ or simplex™ columns, multiple metals and anions may be recovered with one system. The regenerant is diverted to customer supplied container. The system is maintenance free and simple to operate.
