A media cartridge holds specific resins or crystals to ensure the water treatment process occurs thoroughly for the applicational need.
Resin beads are fabricated from an organic polymer substrate – often polystyrene sulfonate. They are small (0.5-1mm diameter) and typically porous, providing a high surface area. These beads are used to either exchange positive ions (cations) or negative ions (anions) in the resin bead exchange process. Crystals applications dissolve to dose the water and coat calcium and magnesium ions and pipework to prevent scale and corrosion.
