DMT Hybrid Dual Media Systems

DMT hybrid water softener filter
Hellenbrand’s Dual Media Technology, or DMT™, offers enhanced protection for your home or business with soft, chlorine-free, chemical-free water.

Until now, homeowners and businesses required multiple water softener and filter systems for clean water.

The DMT™ System uses the same high efficiency technology as the EcoMax HE water softener, and also adds a patented dual-chamber tank design.

Each chamber can be loaded with a variety of softening or filter medias for a truly customized treatment system.

What Others Say:

I love the new system. My water tastes better, my clothes are cleaner, and my new system uses a lot less salt. Thank you Premier Water!

Albertville, MN

WOW, you where correct in everything you told us about the system. We no longer have rust stains in our tub and sink and our food has so much more taste. I can’t believe how our laundry is coming out so clean. I though since we already had a water softener that we would have good water, boy we where wrong. Lars, you and your installation staff are the best, we have told all our family and friends about your system. Our only regret is we didn’t buy it sooner.

Blaine, MN

We bought this system to replace our old Autotrol water softener. Now our water is clean and chlorine-free, and we no longer have dry skin or hair. The RO makes the water taste even better. Thank you for all the information and help.

Blaine, MN

We needed a new softener and better drinking water, and needed advice on what equipment could do the job. We got great service, and our water is much better. Cleaner toilets, cleaner dishes, and MUCH BETTER drinking water.

Chanhassen, MN

The DMT system and Reverse Osmosis system are first class products. Before our new system we were getting rust stains in our clothes, scale in our sinks, and bad tasting water. Everything is so much cleaner now, and our drinking water is fantastic.

Chanhassen, MN

We didn’t know if we should fix our old softener or replace it. Our options were explained to us very clearly and it made our decision very easy for us. The installers were courteous and did quality work. It was nice to find honest, trustworthy professionals that really know what they are talking about.

Chanhassen, MN

We never needed a softener in all the other states we lived in. We had only lived in our new home for a month and our dishes were already getting destroyed. We wanted softer water, but also wanted to get rid of the rust stains and the chlorine taste. We really like the DMT system – our dishes are cleaner, and the water tastes better too. Your staff is very knowledgeable and professional.

Chanhassen, MN

Before our silverware looked dirty after it was washed, and now it is coming out very clean. There is no more ring in the toilets, and our sinks and showers are also much cleaner. We cannot believe how different our skin and hair feel after a shower. The DMT is much better than a water softener.

Chaska, MN

We moved to a home in Edina that had an old, inefficient Surge water softener. It would run for hours, and it used so much salt. We wanted a more complete system that would give us clean water, and also something that was not so wasteful. We love the DMT and Reverse Osmosis system. Our rust and sediment problems are gone. The water tastes great – the entire system works very well. I highly recommend you to others.

Edina, MN

We went from untreated city water to clean, purified soft water. Everything is cleaner, we use less soap, and our drinking and cooking water is great! Your company did a very professional installation and had a great follow-up afterwards. You should be proud of your product and services.

Mahtomedi, MN

Originally we just wanted to replace the Sears Kenmore softener with a better one. We upgraded, and the water is now much better than just “soft water”. Everything is better. I would recommend you to anyone. This was an excellent, professional experience in every way.

Maple Grove, MN

Premier Water was great! The whole process of buying a water softener from them was extremely hassle-free and everyone we worked with was excellent. We will definitely recommend Premier Water to everyone we can!

Maple Grove, MN

The Rainsoft system in our home was too small and wasn’t working anymore. We wanted a new, more efficient softener. The DMT does a great job and have filtered water is a bonus! We have softer skin, use less soap, and the water has a great taste. Premier did an excellent job of explaining of how everything works, and had great overall service. Don’t use any other company!

Maple Grove, MN

We just moved from a home in Edina where hard water and chlorine was a major issue. Since moving into our new house with our DMT System our laundry is brighter, skin feels much better, and hair is not turning colors. Love it!!!

Minnetrista, MN

The Birm Iron Filter and Softener performed poorly. Dealing with both high Iron AND high Tannins was a challenge to get better water quality. I am very happy that I could put in one system that treats both Tannins and Iron. The clarity of the water is much better, and I would highly recommend your company.

Orono, MN

We went for at least ten years without a softener. We were well aware of the effects of untreated water on dishes, clothes, and our skin. Since installing the DMT system we have seen the scale build up disappear on faucets, drinking glasses, and the bathtub. The water tastes better, our clothes are cleaner, and we feel cleaner. It’s a wonderful system.

Plymouth, MN

We put all new appliances in during our remodel, and the water was very hard on them. The coffee maker was on the brink of disaster! We talked to 2 other companies, but your consultation answered all our questions. The service was great, our dishes look great, the water tastes great, and our towels actually seem softer!

Prior Lake, MN

Our Minnesota Water softener broke down for the last time. We got the DMT system to replace the old softener. Thanks for the great education on the mechanics of different water systems. We are very impressed by the high quality of your product and service.

St Louis Park, MN

We inherited a Culligan rental water softener and reverse osmosis system when we moved into our home. Renting didn’t make long term sense, plus we wanted a more efficient softener and to remove chlorine and chemicals. We really like how efficient the DMT is, and its really nice to have chlorine-free water directly from the tap.

Soft, Chemical-Free Water for Your Entire Home

Unique hybrid technology combines high efficiency softening with filtration

DMT Hybrid softener filter tank

Dual Media Technology

The DMT uses two of Hellenbrand’s patented Vortech Plates to treat multiple water problems with a single system. You also get a massive improvement in performance over conventional water softeners and filters.

Standard systems pull water in the path of least resistance unevenly through the tank down towards a small cone. This reduces the resin or media’s effectiveness, and results in uneven buildup that is much harder to clean out.

The Vortech Plate runs the full width and pull water evenly through the tank for balanced loading, and a much more efficient regeneration.

Distributor Plate Benefits:

  • One system to maintain instead of two
  • 30% less water required for backwash
  • 40% less pressure drop across system

Customized to Your Water

Each chamber can be loaded with different media depending on your water quality needs.  Popular solutions include:

Ion-Exchange Resin: premium US-made resin is used to remove hard water and soluble iron.

CS Carbon: US-made coconut shell carbon’s highly porous surface area enhances removal of chlorine, odor, tastes, and color that wood or coal-based carbon.

Catalytic Carbon: US-made catalytic media has all the same benefits as CS carbon, but offers 8x better removal of chloramines, volatile organics, and pharmaceuticals.

Tannin Resin: US-made resin removes tannins that give water a brownish-yellow color.

Upflow Regeneration Technology

The DMT Hybrid Softener uses the EcoMax’s patented upflow regeneration technology for huge efficiency savings over standard water softeners.

Once standard systems run out of capacity, they inject salt into the top of the tank which flows down unevenly in the path of least resistance towards a small cone at the bottom. Roughly 40% of the salt can be wasted in the “hard water pocket” at the top of the tank.

The DMT System injects salt from the bottom, and a special, full-width Plate helps push the water up evenly through the tank for better cleaning, and a much more efficient regeneration.

DMT Benefits:

  • Eliminates hard water “freeboard”
  • Resin bed stays cleaner, and lasts longer
  • 40% less salt used to regenerate

Enhanced Cleaning System

If resin bead pores plug up with hard water, iron, or dirt, they lose their functionality. For resin to stay clean, it needs to backwash and flush out this foreign material.

Standard water softeners have a weak backwash that simply rises up through the resin bed like blowing bubbles in a glass of milk with a straw.

The Hellenbrand Vortech Plate acts like an agitator in a laundry machine and sends a powerful circular flow through the resin bed. This aggressive flushing knocks out debris for superior resin cleaning.

ProMate 6.5 softener controller

Smart System Controls

The DMT Hybrid System controller accurately measures and records your water usage for the past 63 days. This smart control feature automatically adjusts the reserve capacity to make sure that you never run out of soft water.
