Removing hardness also reduces the need for expensive chemical treatment to control scale. Cleaver-Brooks water softeners are available in package design for virtually any commercial or industrial application. A water softener is recommended whenever raw hardness exceeds 1 ppm. Water softeners are available for boilers of all sizes, including multiple boiler applications, steam or hot water. Models SMR and FMR Available in single-, twin- or triplex tank designs and include resin tank(s), brine tank, face-piping, diaphragm valve nest and cycle controller. They feature carbon steel tanks with epoxy lined interiors and utilizes water-activated diaphragm valves and an electronic controller.

Models FSE and SSE Available in single-, twin- or triplex tank designs and include resin tank(s), brine tank, resin, piping, multi-position top-mounted piston valves, flow meters and electronic demand controller. FSE model has plastic tanks for easy installation. SSE model has steel tanks with top-mounted valves. Features:

  • Sized from 20,000 to 1,200,000 grains exchange capacity
  • Flow rates from 8 to 350 gpm
  • Tank sizes 9" to 48" diameter standard, larger available
  • Operating temperatures: 40° to 100°F
  • Spray-lined steel or FRP plastic tanks
  • Optional skid-mounted and pre-piped, pre-wired systems
  • Optional ASME code-stamped tanks


Model CRS Crossover twin alternating systems with plastic tanks and a single top-mounted valve that controls both tanks. Includes resin tanks, brine tank, single valve with CRS controller and interconnecting piping. They provide a continuous supply of softened water with one tank in service and one tank in either regenerating or in standby. Solid-state CRS controls provide simple, reliable operation. Features:

  • Sized from 15,000 to 450,000 grains exchange capacity
  • Flow rates from 12 to 45 gpm
