Making complex IX technology simple.
By the people
who know IX
We innovate, design, assemble and program all our IX systems in-house. Over the decades, we have perfected our systems for actual applications with continual focus on making even the most complex water technologies simple for our endusers in terms of operations. Apart from standard and modular systems, we provide designed-andbuilt systems to suit the layouts or particular requirements of our end-users as well subject to the feed water qualities and their applications. All these while bearing in mind to help our end-users minimise the replacement of resins over the lifetime of our systems.
Standard & modular IX systems.
Undaunted by the technology’s complexity.
Over the years, we have created a wide range of pre-engineered, plug-and-play, ready-to-use standard IX systems for various industrial applications. Be it a straightforward single (simplex)- or double-bed (duplex) water softening system, or a more complex multi-bed demineralisation or mixed polishing system, or super-deionised (SDI) or continuous electro-deionisation (CEDI) system, we have all these pre-designed in the most compact and ideal configurations on skids – easy for selection in views of different applications, short lead time for production, cost-effective for container shipping, hassle-free installation at project sites, trouble-free (post factory-acceptance tests) testing and commissioning at sites before actual operations.
Water softening systems.
Simple. Yet versatile.
Our standard water softening systems are fully mounted on skids, plumbed, wired and ready to use. Using a fully automatic and programmable multi-port control valve, they offer a simple and convenient solution for most of the water –softening requirements. The use of multi-port control valves allow ourwater softeners being versatile in handling varying feed water’s qualities, while producing consistent soft water’s qualities desired by a certain applications.

Our standard and modular
complete demineralisation systems typically
incorporate the newer but proven reverse-flow (or
counter-current) configuration in packed resin beds. In
operation, feed water enters the packed bed upward and downwards
in the regeneration cycles. In the upward service cycle, the resin bed is lifted up in a compacted state. As the water progressively comes into contact with the more regenerated resin, high quality water production is ensured with lower ionic leakage.
The columns are packed with narrow bead size resins which provides excellent fluid hydraulics and minimises channeling during regeneration. The resultant improved resin kinetics also means less mechanical and hydraulic damage to the resin beads during service and regeneration. The effluent from our systems are largely neutral due to the equivalence of cations to anions. As acid and caustic are both introduced into the packed beds at the same time during regeneration, the effluent generated is mostly neutral and relatively environmental friendly.
Super Deionised (SDI) systems.
Our SDI systems are with added features to our 2-bed demineralisers for more demanding applications. With a Hydrogen-cycle cation exchanger as the final polisher, our SDI systems produce high purity water with low sodium leakage in a continuous reverse-flow configuration.As in our 2-bed demineralisation systems, the service and regeneration process and cycles of our SDI systems are similar. Our SDI systems also feature layered-bed in each resin tank as an option. Layered-beds are efficient and economical alternatives to employing separate vessels for strong and weak resins within the same tank. Layered-beds have higher chemical efficiency and total capacity. In anion layered-beds, optimal silica removal can be achieved. Layered-bed options have top-down feed flow.

Chemical-free Continuous electro-
deionisation (CEDI) systems.
This is a non-chemical electric regenerated ionexchanger that allows a continuous operation without stopping for regeneration. It is normally used in conjunction with RO systems, degassifiers and UV components to produce bacteria free and low TOC ultra-pure (up to 18m Ώ cm) water for the pharmaceutical or semiconductor industries. CEDI process overcomes the limitation of ion exchange resin beds, particularly the release of ions as the beds exhaust and the need to change or regenerate the resins.
