The Autotrol Turbulator is a proven, economical, efficient way to enhance iron removal and add extra value in any water conditioner.
The Turbulator is a unique system that attaches to the bottom of the conditioner’s distributor tube deep inside of the system’s ion-exchange tank. The Turbulator backwash distributor system doesn’t rely on the conventional raiser system; a hit-or-miss technique where water flows up through the resin bed in the hope that some iron will be removed in the process. Instead, the Autotrol Turbulator uses a water stream compression device that actually physically moves and stirs the resin.
To ensure maximum cleaning of the resin, the Turbulator propels resin beads to the top of the bed, and then allows them to settle back to the bottom. As the particles are stirred, they move past one another, scrubbing the dirt and iron particles from the resin beads. Once free from the beads, this sediment and iron flows to drain. This resin bed is constantly turned over and reclassified, cleaning the beads and extending their life greatly. The small investment in the Autotrol Turbulator will save you significant money over the life of the conditioner.
Since the Turbulator works in less space, you can easily design narrower or shorter water conditioners without compromising performance.
Turbulator kits fit both the 1-inch and 13/16-inch systems.
The Autotrol Turbulator is designed to fit either the 1-inch or 13/16-inch distributor systems, for maximum installation convenience.
