Custom Cargill Triplex Softener System
Cargill was looking to replace a set of large twin-alternating softeners due to age and lower soft water demand. Smith Engineering supplied a triplex progressive flow system that uses 3 smaller mineral tanks for the lower flow rate but capable of providing much higher flow rates during peak usage.
To save cost, the original bulk brine and day tank were repurposed. The system is entirely skid mounted and pre-plumbed in our shop with isolation valves as well as a bypass valve. This allowed us to greatly reduce downtime during installation and it looks great in place!
