Dynamic modeling is proposed in this paper as a method of developing a computer model to simulate a water softening treatment unit. Information on water softening economics and ion exchange are examined. The development of a dynamic model is oriented toward uniform effluent water quality and operational flexibility. Several methods are presented to determine the reaction rate used in the completely mixed flow reactor's dynamic model. Based on preliminary data the proposed dynamic model would calculate removal rate similar to those found in an existing plant.
