Food & Beverage Stainless Steel Water Softener Calculator & Guide

The calculations below can be used as a guide for ultrapure hot sanitizable Food and Beverage Water Softener sizing. Stainless steel (304, 316, 316L) is the best option for critical food and beverage applications that need to be sanitized with a heat process.  Stainless steel hot sanitizable water softeners are also ideal for dairy, power generation, critical boiler water pre-treatment and many other ultrapure water (UPW) applications. Other calculators for specialized industrial, ultrapure stainless steel water softener are here:

Many variables exist when sizing ultrapure water softener systems that are beyond the scope of the specialized food and beverage water softener calculator & guide below. Water pressure, temperature, flow rate and cubic feet of resin per tank are all variables that have effects on water softener sizing and are not considered. These guides are to be used for quick estimates for sizing, footprints & general design of ultrapure water systems in the food and beverage industry.

For detailed food and beverage water softener sizing including configurations (e.g. single, twin parallel, twin alternating, triples, quad water softener), control types (time-clock, metered, Allen Bradley, GE, Siemens PLC, progressive flow, additive flow) or specific specifications like (316, 316L, 304) stainless steel or specific valve & instrument types, it is important that you email or call Industrial Water Solutions at 800-820-9021.
