These three 30 cubic foot each water softeners service the boiler make-up water. There is a Cla-Val to blend the soft water to create a 3 grain hardness, per the Marriott instructions. These three units were plumbed into a 6″ mainline manifold down to 2″ line, three times. The plumbing was very complicated and quite impressive. The valves used were alternating Fleck 9000 2″ valves. The installation was done by Mountain Slope Water and was completed over a period of approximately 5 days.
This unit is designed with a 2501 micron sediment filter and a radial flow carbon filter. The client uses the fill line to fill containers for syrup concentration mixing. This unit is also connected to an expresso coffee maker located in their service area.
With a Direct Feed Cooler there are no bottles to lift and store and no floor space to be wasted on 5 gallon bottles. The cooler is supplied with unlimited purified water from the Reverse Osmosis Purifier, which is located at the water source. A poly tube, tucked away so you can’t see it, is run to the cooler to supply the purified water. With a Direct Feed Cooler there are no non-sterile bottle necks touching the cooler reservoir water, which introduces bacteria into the reservoir; The Direct Feed Cooler is a closed system.
