Salt Saving Resin Purolite SSTC-60

The Purolite SST™ family of high-efficiency softening resins is based on the strongest surface coating technology. In short, the cation resin SSTC-60 is efficient in ion exchange. This is important during regeneration. Reducing the depth of penetration required to clean the resin allows for more complete regeneration and provides more efficient utilization of the regenerant (SAL). The result is a group of resins with efficiency, reducing leakage and water used in regenerations.

When compared to conventional softening resins, the reduction in regenerant usage can range from 10 to 30 percent in co-flow operated systems, depending on the specific application.
