REGENERANT QUANTITIES : 7.5 kg. of HCLcommercial grade (30% concentration) and 2.5 kg of NaoH (rayon grade).
DILUTION WATER QUANTITIES : 12 lts. of DM water for dilution of Hcl and 25 lts.of DM water for dilution of NaoH.
BACK WASH TIME : 10 minutes.
INJECTION TIME : 15 minutes (for HCL).
INJECTION TIME : 15 minutes (for NaoH).
RINSING TIME : 10 minutes (for both cation and anion).

* See that all required electrical supplies are ‘ON’.
18.104.22.168 For Cation Bed
22.214.171.124 While preparing a solution pour 120 Ltrs HCL into 100 Ltrs of water.
126.96.36.199 Open the valves CBV-6 & CBV-5 fully (CBV-1, CBV-2 and CBV-3 should be closed).
188.8.131.52 Open the valve CBV-4 such that the prepared solution is injected into the exchanger in 30 Minutes.
184.108.40.206 As soon as injection is over close CBV-5 and open CBV-4 fully so that the HCL solution remaining in the pipe line will be flushed out for 1 minute.
220.127.116.11 Close CBV-4 and CBV-6.
18.104.22.168 Open the CBV-1 and CBV-3 fully for 10 minutes (or)till pH comes to 2.5 to 3.5 with the help of pen type PHmeter.
22.214.171.124 As soon as pH comes within the range close CBV-3 and open CBV-2.
For Anion Beds
126.96.36.199 Open the valves ABV-6 and ABV-5 fully (ABV-1, ABV-2, ABV-3 should be closed.)
188.8.131.52 Open the valve ABV-4 such that the prepared solution is injected into the exchange in 30 minutes.
184.108.40.206 As soon as injection is over close ABV-5 and open ABV-4 fully so that the NaoH solution remaining in the pipe line will be flushed out for one minute.
220.127.116.11 Close ABV-4 and ABV-6.
18.104.22.168 Open ABV-1 and ABV-3 rinse it for 30 minutes (or) till conductivity comes to less than 20 ms /cm (or) till PH comes 8 to 10 with the help of pen type PH meter.
22.214.171.124 As soon as the conductivity comes to less than 10 ms/cm close ABV-3 and open ABV-2.
For Mixed Bed
126.96.36.199 Back Wash : Open MBV-3 partially and open MBV-4 fully so that the cation and anion resin beds remain separated (See through sight glass).
188.8.131.52 Soda Injection
a) Open the MBV-6 and MBV-7 fully.
b) Open the MBV-5 such that the prepared solution is injected into the bed within 15 minutes.
c) As soon as injection is over close MBV-6 and open MBV-5 fully and allow the NaoH solution in the pipe line to drain for 1minute and then close MBV-5.
184.108.40.206 Soda Rinse : Open MBV-1 and MBV-7 to rinse the anion resin for 10 minutes and close MBV-1 and MBV-7.
220.127.116.11 Acid Injection:
a) Open MBV-9 and MBV-10 fully.
b) Open MBV-8 such that the prepared solution is injected with in 15 minutes.
c) As soon as the injection is over close MBV-9 and open MBV-8 fully allow the HCL solution to drain for 1 minute after 1 minute close the MBV-8.
18.104.22.168 Acid Rinse: Open MBV-11 and MBV-10 and allow rinsing for 10 minutes and closing MBV- 10 and MBV-11.
22.214.171.124 Air Mixing : Open MBV-12 and MBV-4, the air pressure should be 0.5 Kg/sq.cm. for 15 minutes, see that proper mixing should takes place and close MBV-12 and MBV-4.
5.4.0 SHUT DOWN
5.4.1 Final Rinsing : Open MBV-1 and MBV-10 and allow the water to drain for 30minutes (or) while the conductivity comes below 01ms/cm (or) till PH comes 6-7 with the help of pen type PH meter, then close MBV-10 and open MBV-2 collect the water in the storage tank.
