A predetermined amount of hydrated lime is added to a predetermined amount of water. The two are mixed for an Owner selected period of time to an Owner selected final slurry concentration before being discharged into the Slurry Aging Tank. The slurry concentration can be varied from 1% to 30% The Slurry Aging Tank is designed to provide over 15 minutes of aging to optimize the utilization of the lime. The lime is then delivered to one or more application points through a continuous loop and Precision Dosing Sub-system. The velocity in the loop is maintained above the critical velocity required to minimize scaling in the pipes.
The precision and accuracy of this system provides consistent water pH in the face of changing influent flows. The proven Tekkem operating system provides automatic dosing based upon flow, mg/liter or any Owner selected criteria.
