Vantage® PTC Softeners

For Commercial Applications
Vantage® PTC softeners for commercial applications offer a flexible, reliable and feature-rich way to reduce the amount of hardness in feed water by filtering the water through a cation resin bed.  Softeners are necessary to remove hardness or calcium that can clog or minimize the effectiveness of other sensitive downstream devices, such as RO membranes.


 Product Configuration

Softener vessel diameters range from 9” (23cm) to 48” (122cm). Each softener contains high capacity cation resin for this ion exchange process. 

Vantage PTC softeners are available in three models:

  • Economy – Controlled by a digital controller and composite valve
  • Plus – Controlled by mechanical time clock and a lead free brass valve
  • Deluxe – Controlled by a feature-rich digital controller and a lead free brass valve

The Deluxe models are available in four vessel configurations: Simplex, Duplex, Triplex and Quadplex.The deluxe models are then ​available in four operational flow configurations depending on the number of vessels:​​

  • Simplex Operation – single vessel operation
  • Duplex Alternating – one vessel on, one vessel in standby
  • Parallel – all vessels working together
  • X + 1 – two or three vessels working and one vessel in stand by for backwash support

The Economy and Plus models will only operate in the following flows:​

  • Simplex Operation – single vessel operation. Multiple simplex units may be purchased to work together, however they will not function as one system as with the Deluxe model. A system lockout is available.
