CAPACITY CALCULATION

 

The volume of mains water that a tank can demineralize is calculated based on the basic capacity of the tank.

 

Flash presentation >>

 

The tank capacity is calculated by dividing the total salt content of the saline water converted into °GH into the basic capacity.

 

          Example:

          SILEX 21 has a basic capacity of 22,700 litres °GH.

          The total salt content of the water corresponds to 20°GH.

          Calculated capacity:

                                            22,700 divided by 20 = 1,135 litres.

 

N.B.:  If the plant is to polish demineralized water to obtain the lowest possible conductivity and silica content, the capacity must be calculated by one of our technicians.
