KOMPaion-VEA-line: reliable and cheap desalination of process water

Application fields

The ion exchanger systems of the KOMPaion-VEA line are used for the generation of completely desalted water. Further application fields are:

  • Circulation of final rinses
  • Recycling technology
  • Secondary cleaning of treated waste water

All ion exchangers have one thing in common:

They can only operate in clean solutions. Oils and fats must be kept away. Any contained solid matters (hydrolysis products, dirt) must be removed before the ion exchange.

General process description

The heart of the ion exchanger system is the exchanger resin. The porous plastic spheres are able to absorb dissolved saline substances from the water and release them again during the regeneration with acid or lye. These resins are filled into filter columns and the water to be purified is passed through them. In the systems of the KOMPaion-VEA line, loading is effected in an up-current and regeneration in a reverse current/down-current.

Description of system

The KOMPaion-VEA series systems have the following construction:

  • Prefiltration (simple or double cartridge filters)
  • Ion exchanger system
  • Regeneration unit

With the KOMPaion-VEA series exchanger systems, the advantages of series connection are utilized, taking into consideration the exchanger capacities.

The operation of the system is subdivided into the following main steps:

  • Loading: Removal of ions from urban water, rinse water or waste water.
  • Regeneration: Reactivation of the active exchanger groups by means of acids or lyes.


  • Best pure water quality by retention of sodium ion leakage
  • Operationally reliable initiation of regeneration
  • Low investment costs thanks to a simple construction of the pipe battery
  • Modern control concept with central PLC unit
  • Particularly clearly arranged pipe battery without dead volumes
  • Patented regeneration system
