SpringTech

Efficient Bottom Distribution Water Treatment Systems

SpringTech Series

  • Available in sizes ranging from 5.7 liters to 187.8 Liter
  • Flexibility of sizes and components
  • Efficient Vortech™ bottom distribution plate

The SpringTech™ series is an exclusive range of composite pressure vessels with built-in Vortech™ distributor plates, the latest and most revolutionary technology in the water treatment industry.

The revolutionary Vortech™  technology ensures optimum tank efficiency, facilitating quicker backwash using less water.  The Vortech™  distributor plate also prevents media channeling to ensure efficient use of the entire media bed.  The design creates fluidity of the media bed and extends contaminant removal capacity; which means less regenerations and significant reduction of water use, saving water, salt and the environment, with backwash flow rate reductions of at least 30%. Plus, the Vortech™ system eliminates the need for gravel under bedding as well as hub & lateral assemblies, reducing overall cost and shipping weight.

SpringTech™ with Mid-Vortech™ utilizes a second Vortech™ plate, eliminating the need for a second media tank system, by combining two medias into one tank and keeping them physically separated, reducing overall system cost and backwash water usage, with the elimination of redundant plumbing and equipment.

Features & Benefits

  • Unique 3-piece-design construction
  • Compatible with most ion exchange resins and filtration medias
  • Utilizes patented Vortech™ bottom distribution system for a cleaner and more efficient, environmentally friendly system with less backwash
  • Computer controlled cut provides consistent vessel length within 0.180”/.046 cm
  • Glass-filled threaded inlet mechanically and chemically welded to the dome eliminates leak paths
  • Increase in softening capacity, no channeling of media
  • Reduces salt consumption and saves net costs and unit weight for shipping
  • Additional Mid-Vortech™ option as a mid-plate distributor eliminates the need of a second media tank
  • Exclusive co-polymer polypropylene liner formulation provides superior performance in any environment
  • Superior impact resistance, consistent and strong quality
  • Flexibility in picking sizes and components

Vortech™

The SpringTech™ series features the unique Vortech™  bottom distributor plate and optional Mid-Vortech™ plate. Vortech™ is the world’s most innovative and efficient universal distribution system for water treatment systems, in filtration and softening applications. The design creates a fluidity of the media bed and extends contaminant removal capacity; which means less regenerations and significant reduction of water use. The patented self-cleaning nozzle design accelerates the velocity of water across the co-polymer polypropylene distributor, preventing the potential build-up of iron and other contaminants.

Vortech™ Features & Benefits

  • Up to 30% less backwash flow rate is required, conserving water for the consumer
  • High flow design maximizes today’s high efficiency valve technology
  • Permanent attachment of dip tube to distributor, so when servicing a valve, distributor stays in place, no more re-bedding
  • Elimination of gravel, saves net costs and unit weight for shipping
  • Improved system pressure drop characteristics
  • Self-cleaning nozzle design eliminates potential clogging and build-up
  • Increase in softening capacity, due to improved flow through media
  • No channeling of media, providing a cleaner more efficient system
  • Environmentally friendly, reduction in required backwash times due to improved bed lift and mixing at lower flow rates
  • Cost efficient softening regeneration, reducing salt consumption

Vortech™ versus standard distributors

SpringTech™ with Vortech™

One cubic foot of 10 percent cross-linked
cation softening resin
  • Bed expansion in backwash 10.5 inches of lift
  • Time to lift bed to full expansion at 2.0 gpm = 2.0 min.
  • Four min. backwash time = 8.0 gal.
  • Fast rinse reduced from six to two min. at 2.0 gpm = 4.0 gal.

Standard Tank

One cubic foot of 10 percent cross-linked
cation softening resin
  • Bed expansion in backwash 5 inches of lift
  • Time to lift bed to full expansion at 2.0 gpm = 4.25 min.
  • Eight min. backwash time = 16.0 gal.
  • Fast rinse had to stay at six min. at 2.0 gpm = 12.0 gal.
