Hybrid Deionization system.
Pentair has launched its Hybrid Deionization system with Pentair’s CrossCharge technology, an electronic water purification system that the firm said offers the advantages of a reverse osmosis system and those of a water softener without requiring salt.
The new technology uses capacitive electrodes to remove hardness and purify water without employing salt. The core of the system is Voltea’s patented stack configuration of electrodes combined with ionselective membranes. Normally, the treatment sequence begins with the purification step.
Whenever producing consequently reset to normal to start purification again. The CrossCharge technology within Pentair’s Hybrid DI system was developed through a partnership with the Dutch firm Voltea.
Usually, the company has licensed the technology exclusively to Pentair in residential and light commercial applications for point of entry products.
Pentair said the technology continuously assesses the inlet and treated water quality, controls the power supplied to the stack, and adjusts operating cycles and system flows to continuously optimize performance.
The controller includes selfdiagnostics and auto clean cycles. It also features a fullcolor touch screen user interface with animated User displays that are intuitive for the everyday user/homeowner and interactive Technical screens for system.

It also produces 90percent less waste water than a conventional whole house reverse osmosis system.
