By decarbonization, ie only partial softening of water, only salts of carbonate hardness, ie bicarbonates in a weakly acidic cation exchanger saturated with hydrogen (H) ions are removed. Decarbonization is performed via a weakly acidic cation exchanger (acid exchange), which due to the low acidity of its solid ions separates only bicarbonates (carbonate hardness), while mineral acid salts (non-carbonate hardness) remain unchanged. The total amount of calcium and magnesium (Ca2+ and Mg2+ salts) in the water decreases.

Decarbonized water finds its most common application in refrigeration systems, the production of soft drinks and beer, the canning industry, as a prelude to demineralization, and wherever technological needs dictate.
