The Crusader Enhanced Water system is designed to address hardness, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, chlorine tastes & odors in microbiologically safe water at flow rates up to 50 gpm.
Operation of the Filtration System
Hard water can contain dissolved minerals in the form of Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), as well as metals such as Iron (Fe), Copper (Cu), Lead (Pb ), Nickel (Ni), Zinc (Zn), Lithium (Li) and other inorganics. Chemical Pesticides, Herbicides, Chlorine & Chloramine with their disinfectant byproducts can also be found in safe city water. Reduction of these contaminants is accomplished by conditioning & filtering the water through a sophisticated ion exchange process as well as catalysis, absorption, adsorption and physical filtration.
Filtration Media – AquaPro 500-3a, ChlorZorb & Catalytic Activator
The exchange media is a high quality, FDA certified, commercial grade strong acid cation Functional Matrix filtration media with a very high whole bead count, no color throw, physically hard, and is extremely resistant to chlorine oxidation, fouling and attrition. 500-3a filtration media is designed to work together with ProGuard & ProGuard Plus performance enhancers to synergistically function at peak efficiency levels, providing you with the water quality, taste & feel that you desire. The media combines high operating capacity with excellent chemical and physical stability for a long dependable life. ChlorZorb & the catalytic activator work together in synergy to effectively address chlorine, chloramine, pesticides, herbicides, tastes, odors and disinfection by-products. These media are further activated by ProGuard & ProGuard Plus, maintaining a bacteriostatic environment.
Regeneration of the system is initiated by a sophisticated electronic control timer, which precisely meters filtered water flow and makes decisions to regenerate based on measured water consumption, elapsed time, and other program settings.
Regeneration & Control Valve
A fully programmable microprocessor controls Tank Fill, Percolation, Backwash, Ion displacement, Backwash, Vortex Rinse, and return to service cycles, ensuring that water quality is according to specifications. A hydraulically balanced, self-cleaning piston utilizes a composite drivetrain and high-resolution optical encoder. All parts in the waterway are either Teflon-coated brass or composite Noryl® materials for a long and reliable service life.
All models feature a non-corrosive fiberglass media tank, with a one piece thermoplastic inner liner. The tank is approved by NSF, UL, FDA, and meets WQA Standard S-100. All fiberglass tanks carry a limited lifetime warranty. The brine tank is a combination brine maker and salt storage vessel and is made of tough, high-density polyethylene.
Brine Tank & Brine System
The high capacity brine tank is a combination brine maker and salt storage vessel and is made of tough, high-density polyethylene. Larger tanks are available for extra salt storage capacity, if required. Brine refill is automatically controlled by the computer to provide the exact amount of brine for each regeneration. The Brine System has a float and safety valve shut-off, which minimizes the chance of overflowing the brine tank. All units are equipped with an air check.
A high-efficiency ProGuard dosing reservoir is included with this system to ensure peak performance and maximum protection from inorganic metals and minerals while maximizing system efficiency.
