Special product feature The Regenerating Salt is pure crystallized evaporated salt, without the addition of any anticaking agents, synthetic dyestuffs or other substances.
Ranges of application For regeneration of the ion exchanger in the dishwasher.
Anpplication An integral part of every dishwashing machine is an ion exchanger which traps the calcium and magnesium ions, the cause of hard water, and feeds soft water into the machine. This is intended to prevent limescale deposits on glasses and cutlery. If the ion exchanger becomes saturated with calcium and magnesium ions, its absorbing capacity must be restored again by means of regeneration. For this purpose, we use regenerating salt which has the effect of exchanging the hardness ions, thus ensuring optimal rinsing results.
Dosage As soon as the dishwasher’s ‘salt needed’ light turns on, fill the designated salt compartment with regenerating salt according to the machine manufacturer’s instructions for use.
Experience shows that some machines indicate their need for salt replenishment at a very late state. To prevent this, the regenerating salt compartment should be regularly refilled even though the display does not yet indicate the respective need. Had the salt compartment been completely emptied, wait for about 2 hours after replenishing it before switching the machine on again; this gives the ion exchanger sufficient time to regenerate.
Correct setting of the ion exchanger (water softener): Adjust the built-in water softener in your dishwasher to be 8 °dH (German degrees) above your local water hardness.
For doing so, please consult the Instructions for Use of your Dishwasher, section “Water Softener”.
