Industrial Effluent Treatment
Effluent and wastewater are treated using a variety of physical, chemical and biological processes to eliminate pollutants. Once treated effluent and waste water can be released back into the water system or recycled for use.
The type and grade of lime used generally depends on size of the treatment plant and quantities of lime required. Lime is normally used in the form of a slurry, or milk of lime. Using quicklime (calcium oxide) requires the installation of special “slaking” equipment but entails lower material costs. Quicklime is commonly used for the largest systems.
Hydrated lime (calcium hydroxide) is more costly but requires less equipment. It is generally used for medium size installations. Pre-prepared milk of lime requires the simplest type of equipment and provides a highly efficient solution for smaller systems.
We work closely with our customers to identify the most efficient, cost effective and sustainable lime solution for their Wastewater requirements, ensuring maximum return on investment.
Our lime solutions are used at various stages of the effluent and waste water treatment process, for a wide range of applications including:
- Acid neutralization
- Solids Precipitation
- Coagulation and pH control
- Metallic contaminants removal
The Calbux range is of consistent high purity and available in a range of reactivities to suit any quicklime reactor or slaking process.
LIMBUX HYDRATED LIME
The Limbux range includes a comprehensive choice of high quality hydrated limes, including specialist grades to meet specific applications.
KALIC LIQUID LIME
Kalic pre-prepared liquid limes are highly stable in suspension and very fast reacting. This not only makes them easy to use and store, but also extends plant life and lowers maintenance costs
