Lime slurry is a dense, abrasive product to transfer with a high solid content of up to 35%. Pumping lime slurry is not an easy task, nor is it easy on your pump. The inability of lime slurry to dissolve and the frequent scaling issues that occur can lead to serious maintenance headaches for a facility. Used in either a dry form or made into slurry, lime is most often used at water treatment facilities to maintain pH levels for domestic use. This highly viscous, abrasive fluid is often associated with plating out, a condition where surfaces become caked with lime. This caking, along with grit and pebbles, is known for its wear and tear on centrifugal and diaphragm pumps, which requires regular cleaning and frequent maintenance. For many treatment plants this can mean costly repairs and frequent downtime.
