The broad objective of the study was to optimize the design and operating cycle of ion exchange systems for the specific purpose of demineralizing brackish waters for municipal use. As regenerant chemicals comprise a major item of cost in ion exchange demineralization, special emphasis was placed on ascertaining the most efficient exhaustion-regeneration cycle. Throughout the study advantage was gained by using the generally lower domestic criteria of mineral acceptability in comparison with the usual industrial requirements for low conductivity water.
