pH Control and pH Adjustment : Sodimate’s lime slurry systems are installed in water, wastewater and industrial wastewater treatment processes to adjust pH. Both hydrated lime (calcium hydroxide) and quicklime (calcium oxide) can be used with these systems, each requiring specific dry-to-slurry equipment.
Facilities that use quicklime will require a lime slaker on-site to create a hydrated lime slurry prior to being fed to the stream of water, while facilities that use hydrated lime will only require a slurry mixing tank. The complete lime turnkey system would also include:
- Storage Container for powdered lime, such as a silo, hopper, or super sac
- Gravimetric or volumetric screw feeder
- Isolation injector to protect the screw feeder from moisture and humidity
- Lime slurry tank with skid pumps
