Crusader Cartridge and Tank-based Orthophosphate treatment systems are used in residential, commercial, and industrial applications throughout the Continental USA and Canada to help address the following issues:

Phosphates easily adapt to any pre-existing water quality without negatively affecting the water chemistry. Referred to as inhibitors (ortho), sequestrants (poly), or blends (ortho/poly), phosphates have a selective function, yet wide range of performance.
Crusader Orthophosphate based systems are classified as corrosion inhibitors and as such react with dissolved metals (e.g. Ca, Mg. Zn, etc.) in the water to form a very thin metal-phosphate coating while also reacting with metals on pipe and fitting surfaces to form a microscopic barrier on the inner surface that is exposed to the treated water.

Crusader Polyphosphate based systems react with soluble metals (iron, manganese, calcium, magnesium, etc.) by sequestering (binding-up) the metals to maintain their solubility in water. The phosphate sequestering process minimizes the risk of discoloration, staining, scaling, taste/odor and other water quality complaints.
Many secondary benefits can develop, such as:

Reduced chlorine demand due to corrosion inhibition and sequestration of Fe/Mn

Lower color and turbidity in the distribution system

Less staining, removal of system scale deposits

Control of biofilm regrowth, lower TOC

Fewer system coliform violations

Increased C-factors and hydraulic flow rates in system

Reduced electrical demand

Better valve operation

Improved meter accuracy

Less maintenance and service expenditures

Crusader’s Orthophosphate blended solutions are developed and manufactured in the USA to ensure rigorous quality control and environmental sustainability standards are maintained throughout.

 

 

Whole-House and Commercial Solutions

 

The Crusader Orthophosphate series of custom water conditioners are designed to address hard water scale, TDS-induced corrosion as well as naturally aggressive waters at flow rates up to 20 gpm.

Hard water can contain Calcium and Magnesium Carbonates. Phosphates easily adapt to any pre-existing water quality without negatively affecting the water chemistry. Referred to as inhibitors (ortho), sequestrants (poly), or blends (ortho/poly), phosphates have a selective function, yet wide range of performance.

Crusader Orthophosphate based systems are classified as corrosion inhibitors and as such react with dis-solved metals (e.g. Ca, Mg. Zn, etc.) in the water to form a very thin metal-phosphate coating while also re-acting with metals on pipe and fitting surfaces to form a microscopic barrier on the inner surface that is ex-posed to the treated water.

Crusader Polyphosphate based systems react with soluble metals (iron, manga-nese, calcium, magnesium, etc.) by sequestering (binding-up) the metals to maintain their solubility in water. The phosphate sequestering process minimizes the risk of discoloration, staining, scaling, taste/odor and other water quality complaints.

Many secondary benefits develop, such as: reduced chlorine demand due to corrosion inhibition and sequestration of Fe/Mn, lower color and turbidity in the distribution system, less staining, removal of system scale deposits, control of biofilm regrowth, lower TOC, fewer system coliform violations, increased C-factors and hydraulic flow rates in system, reduced electrical demand, fewer main breaks, better valve operation, improved meter accuracy, increased revenue, reduced hydrant flushing frequency, less wasted water during flushing, less maintenance and service expenditures, fewer complaint calls, and overall improved consumer satisfaction.

Crusader’s Orthophosphate blended solutions are developed and manufactured in the USA to ensure rigor-ous quality control and environmental sustainability standards are maintained throughout.

All filter models feature a non-corrosive fiberglass tank, with a one piece thermoplastic inner liner. The tank has a maximum working pressure of 90 psi and a working temperature up to 120°F. The tank is approved by NSF, UL, FDA, and meets WQA Standard S-100. All fiberglass tanks carry a limited lifetime warranty.

This conditioning system should only be installed on municipal water supplies known to be microbiologically safe and devoid of sediment.

Ideal for:

  • Apartments
  • Commercial Ice makers
  • Condominiums
  • Drinking Fountains
  • Eyewash Stations
  • Reverse Osmosis Pretreat
  • Smaller Homes
  • Soda Machines
  • Water Heaters

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cartridge-based Solutions

 

Crusader CS-PHOS series of Cartridges contain a proprietary blend  of crystalline phosphate compounds that dissolve slowly in water to inhibit scale and rust build-up. “C”-Suffix cartridges include Granular Activated Carbon to address Chlorine at levels up to 2 ppm.

This type of treatment is recommended for use with tankless water heaters, tank-type water heaters, reverse osmosis purifiers, nanofilters, ultrafilters, ice machines, coffee and vending machines, food service equipment, humidifiers, air conditioning equipment and many other types of water processing equipment affected by calcium carbonate scale or potentially corrosive water conditions.
