This problem can be managed by using a salt based brine solution instead of using water.|
|Industrial Applications - Salt is used in many industrial applications including water softening. Salt for this purpose is usually a washed or refined grade. Water is considered to be hard when it contains traces of calcium and magnesium, known as hardness ions. Mineral scale can build up in hot water appliances and industrial boilers, reducing energy efficiency and shortening the appliance and equipment life. A similar type of salt is used for making a brine for brine cooling systems.|
