Ion exchange resin is the heart of nearly every water treatment process, and that resin must be maintained so that it can properly remove hardness elements, particulates and other microbiological and natural organics that are suspended in the treated water that flows through it. Fouled resin lowers throughput and drives up regeneration costs.
RTI solves the problem of fouled resin by restoring, instead of replacing. RTI’s Predictive Restoration On-Site Ion Exchange Services combined with Chemical Restoration with Predictive Maintenance to ensure that resin remains at peak effectiveness.

Traditionally, fouled resin is replaced by new resin. However, the price of new resin continues to increase while its availability is decreasing – creating additional difficulties for plant operation managers everywhere.
RTI’s Custom Resin Management Program (CRM) pulls together RTI’s industry proven services to create a tailored solution based on the individual needs of your water plant. It’s a great opportunity to optimize throughput in a highly cost-effective way.
RTI developed the Custom Resin Management (CRM) program as a way to help our customers see the economic value in maintaining their resin.

During RTI’s Ion Exchange Resin and Reverse Osmosis Cleanings, there is often a concern that enough water to meet current needs will be in jeopardy during the process. To help guard against interruptions, RTI has partnered with GE Mobile Water to supply a back-up water truck as part of the resin or membrane restoration operation.
